'Crunky' chocolate - Purple sweet potato

Posted by Linda on 20. 2010 1 comments 0 trackback
here's another great flavor from LOTTE's popular 'Crunky' chocolate brand; Purple sweet potato. Roasted sweet potatos has long been a popular lite snack in Japan for many centuries, and it is still quite popular today, and with increasing popularity of the purple sweet potatos. I personally was never too fond of eating roasted sweet potatos on their own, but hey, when I saw this new flavor Crunky from LOTTE, sweet potatos with chocolate, what a wonderful combination! So I was really excited about this and didn't hesitate to order it at NapaJapan!

and what can I say, I was not disappointed at all! Each of these little individually packaged chocolates were bursting with lovely roasted sweet potato flavor, the balance of the tastes of the sweet potatos and chocolate was just perfect! Neither one overpowered the other, both flavors balanced each other just right. I also like the appealing pastel purple color of the chocolate and of course I loved the crispy tiny malt puffs embedded in the chocolate; a staple in LOTTE's Crunky chocolates.
I also really like the packaging, not only is it attractive, but it's also very convenient, with small individually packaged pieces of chocs so you can share them with friends & family...or, just keep them for yourselfand the box is re-sealable.
Will definitely be ordering more of this in the future!

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.
