Japan certainly has it in the bag when it comes to creating cute, new designs and packaging for chocolates and candies. So, whether you’re looking for that perfect gift or just looking for an excuse to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day, the shops in Japan will have something for you. The main difficulty will be trying to stop yourself from buying it all! Just check out these goodies!
These chocolate spoons are the perfect gift for the coffee-lover in your life. Designed to be added to a latte to make a yummy chocolate latte. Make the latte, stir with your spoon and watch as it melts into a delicious goo. The best part is, it’s one less thing to wash after you’re done!
Okay, so the following candies are not chocolate, but I couldn’t resist including these cute and unusual lollipops. They are a sweet combo of flowers and candy for Valentine’s Day with pretty, edible flowers right inside the lollipop. Each flower has a different flavour and meaning, so that you can tailor the gift for your special someone.
Cute cakes and cookies abound here in Japan all year through, but especially around Valentine’s Day. If you or your loved one enjoys traditional Japanese sweets and red bean paste, why not go for some of these heart-shaped cakes? The traditional red bean past is mixed with chocolate for a Valentines twist, and the Japanese experience is complete with some mistranslated English printed on the bun.
Strawberries are always a delicious treat, so why not combine them with chocolate this Valentine’s Day?
