I also bought this from Tokyomart during my last shopping trip there, I think this was a special release edition of Fujiya's popular 'LOOK' chocolates, it contains an assortment of 4 different flavors inspired by Baskin Robbins ice cream, there's regular vanilla & chocolate, strawberry cheesecake and matcha ice cream flavors:

because there's 4 different flavors, I will review each flavor separately...

Country Ma'am chocochip cookies - Mix 3 flavors

Posted by Linda on 04. 2012 0 comments 0 trackback
'Country Ma'am' is the name for Fujiya's popular brand of chocochip cookies, I love these 'Country Ma'am' cookies they're so yummy and with so many exciting flavors to choose from and with more new flavors released each year. I'm not too fond of Fujiya and it's certainly not among my favorite Japanese manufacturers, but with that said, their delectable 'Country Ma'am' chocochip cookies are the ultimate excuse for me to keep coming back to this company!
The makers at Fujiya had adapted the American choc chip cookies and added their own little Japanese twist to it. Unlike typical American choc chip cookies which tends to have a consistent texture, these 'Country Ma'am' choco chip cookies have a more complex texture; soft and crumbly on the inside, harder and crunchier on the outside. So if you do plan on giving these Country Ma'am chocochip cookies a go, don't expect these cookies to have the same kind of texture and standards of a typical American choc chip cookie, because they are very different. These Country Ma'am cookies may share the same concept, but their way of execution and baking are different. The 1 mistake I see other foodies tend to make is judging these Country Ma'am cookies based on the standards & texture of the typical American choc chip cookie, that is a big NO in my books! Because these cookies are different to its American counterpart, I believe they should only be judged on the product itself and on their own aspects in terms of texture and flavor, and NOT compared to their American counterpart. Because after all, these are simply the Japanese style of choc chip cookies.

Anyway, today I'm going to review about this box of mix 3 different flavors of Country Ma'am cookies; classic Vanilla, Cocoa and Gianduja, which is a smooth chocolate paste that contains at least 30% hazelnut, while old tradition recipes of Gianduja contains about 50% hazelnuts.

'LOOK' chocolates - Triple choc (18 pieces)

I'm in a bit of a hurry now, so this will be a very short & brief review.

This was a special release of popular LOOK chocolate from Fujiya that first came out on the market last year:
look-18piece.jpg look-18piece2.jpg
each pack contained 18 pieces of LOOK chocolate (more than usual) and there were 3 different fillings for you to enjoy; 6 pieces each of ganache, truffle cream and choc mousse. Each piece of choc was so rich and creamy they melt in your mouth...the fillings were quite accurate as well, for me, it's a improvement from their Parfait A La Mode.
However, these LOOK choc pieces were smaller than the usual sized LOOK chocs, perhaps that's why they gave us 18 pieces.

My rating (overall):

'LOOK' chocolate - Parfait A La Mode

Honestly, Japanese sweets & confectioneries may be among the best in the world, but some of them sure have some really strange brand names! And this is no exception! This is part of the popular 'LOOK' chocolate brand from Fujiya; one of Japan's oldest confectionery manufacturers & nation-wide confectionery chain shop. Its first shop was established in 1910 in Yokohama. Although nowadays Fujiya may not be among Japan's leading confectionery manufacturers, but it is among the most experienced in the industry...or at least, they should be, and 'LOOK' chocolate is one of their most popular & recognized brands. This is the 'Parfait A La mode':

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
