This is one of my favorite snacks. This product is named “chocolate pie” but I am not sure if English speakers call this kind of sweets as “pie”. I mean I wonder if I should title “chocolate cake” or something not “pie”.
I think there are 2 major “choco-pie” manufacturers in Japan, one is Lotte and another is Morinaga. This one is from Morinaga. I prefer Morinaga’s choco-pie since the sponge is moist enough. But Lotte’s choco-pie has more different flavors.
Good! I just like it!
I feel Morinaga’s Choco Pie has more moisture sponge cake than Lotte. If you like less moisture cake you may prefer Lotte’s Choco Pie. As for the variation of the flavor, I would say Lotte wins.
Average. Around 250 yen.

I’m able to be satisfied just having one because of the rich taste but it’s only 155 kcal!
|Easy to get?|
I got this at AEON, one of the biggest supermarkets in Japan. Although there’s a label says “limited time only” I see this product almost every year so you will also find this when you visit Japan around from late August to October.
Definitely! I get this every year. I cannot find anything to improve about this product.
The materials may be changed in the future so please check by yourself when you try it.

It goes really well with cafe au lait (coffee with milk).
