Meiji Strawberry chocolate

Posted by Linda on 16. 2012 0 comments
I also bought this block of strawberry chocolate manufactured by Meiji at Tokyomart:

smooth rich milk choc covered a thin layer of strawberry cream, the strawberry cream in the center was sweet but not dominant, there were also some tiny bits of REAL freeze-dry strawberry embedded in the cream, to help infuse some natural flavor of strawberries into the cream, which I thought was a neat touch...otherwise the cream would've simply tasted like artificial flavoring. But the milk choc coating still dominated over the strawberry cream, which was rather unfortunate because the strawberry flavor should've been the star of the show.
Overall, this was a nice confection from the manufacturer, I like the fact that the makers at Meiji also incorporated some freeze-dry stawberry bits into the cream, it really gave the cream some natural strawberry flavor. But the overall flavor of strawberry just wasn't enough. And the whole chocolate bar was packaged just a little bit too little, I would've liked more quantity of it for my money's worth.
Will I buy it again? Maybe.

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.
