Glico 'Giant Caplico' - Strawberry

Posted by Linda on 03. 2010 0 comments 0 trackback
One of the handful of delights I bought on my second trip to Tokyomart 3 days ago, was a 'Giant Caplico' confection made by famous Japanese confectionery manufacturer Glico, this is the Strawberry flavor:

Honestly, I really didn't know what to expect of it, I didn't quite know what it was since I've never tried it prior to my Tokyomart trip, although I had assumed that it might be a wafer cone with a marshmallow candy topping.
You could feel the wafer cone when you touch without unwrapping it, as I was peeling off the wrapper, the first thing I noticed was the pink topping with air bubbles:

I wasn't sure what the topping was made of until I took my first bite & realized that it was strawberry flavored aerated chocolate. As I looked down at my Caplico, I was pleasantly surprised to see a small amount of milk chocolate in the center that was also aerated:

The sweetness of the 2 chocolates was well balanced.
1 bite soon came after another, I didn't time myself, but it just seemed like I had finished the whole thing in just under a minute! Overall it was a wonderful experience, it was different, but flavorsome, I will definitely be buying more of this the next time I visit Tokyomart!
Although I thought the price for it was abit too high...over $3 for each one.

My rating (overall):

I would've given it full points, but the price for it was a bit too much I think.

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.
