Sep 28th 2017 | Chocolate and Strawberry, I Choose You!
This email explains what was in the September 28th candy shipment, which should arrive around the world around the end of October.
The items in the box are: Lotte Pokemon Chocolate Wafers, Soft DIY Strawberry Candy, and Bourbon Olive Oil X Chocolate.
Lotte Pokemon Chocolate Wafers
If you love Pokemon and Japanese sweets, then this wafer is for you. Two crispy and large wafer biscuits stuck together with milk chocolate and crunchy cookie bits, but that's not all. These poketastic treats all come with one of 24 awesome collectible Pokemon stickers. Just make sure you don't accidentally eat the sticker.
Maruta Nericcho Soft DIY Strawberry Candy
This candy is made by you. Just in the sprinkles, water, and mix it together and you've got your very own candy. If you prefer to follow along to a video, here's a cute one.
The consistency and texture is a bit like ice cream. You even eat it together on an included wheat cracker cone. It's also a bit magical watching the sprinkles transform into soft and creamy strawberry delight.
Bourbon Olive Oil X Chocolate
Japan is always coming up with weird combinations. In this case olive oil and chocolate. Not just any chocolate either, but 70% cocoa so bitter lovers are in for a treat. The outer-shell holds the darkest chocolate, while the inside is full of rich and creamy milk chocolate mixed with a unique blend of olive oil.
