This is one of the most famous chocolate snacks in Japan from a manufacturer Meiji. There are two major forces, this bamboo shoot shaped chocolate snack “Takenokonosato” and “Kinokonoyama” which is mushroom shaped chocolate snack.

The difference is mainly cookie/pretzel part. “Kinokonoyama” is less sweet I think. This product has some different flavors.

This time I tried this, brown sugar syrup & soybean powder flavor. This combination is called “kuromitsu & kinako” and they are very popular in Japan. Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

Good as usual! I like the texture of the combination of the chocolate and cookie.
I also like “kinako”, soybean powder flavored chocolate!

Easy to get?
I got this at AEON, one of the biggest supermarkets in Japan.
Although there isn’t any indication saying “limited time only” I don’t think we can get this anytime anywhere…
Get again?
