I love Strawberry chocolates and candies from Japan. What ever strawberry flavoring they use is so different than what is in our candy and it is so much better. The first time I had anything strawberry from Japan was when I was young and I got to try Strawberry Pocky, it was so good and reminded me of strawberry nesquik milk. Whenever I go to any of the Asian marketsI am always on the lookout for Strawberry chocolates, usually only finding the little appolon cone chocolates.
In april and may however is when there are strawberry fastivals around the nation and the markets stock a vast array of Japanese strawberry themed treats from: chocolates, cookies, snack cakes, and hard or chewy candies. I always love going this time of year because it is the only time I really stock up on alot of treats.
Ember and I tried all the new candies this year together and had a fun time!
