I like sweets, I have always liked them, even though I liked salty stuff better. So, going to a new place always get me curious about their sweets. Japanese sweets at the supermarkets aren’t as varied as the ones you see in some other places (you should go to a shop like Marushige which is a candy shop, or find one of the sweets carts in malls). They are also less sweet than other places.
Note, that these chocolates are regular ones I picked up a the supermarket and Don Quijote (why do they have to spell it like that).
What I have noticed too, is that the packaging is always so elaborate. even if they are cheap types like these. There are many that I haven’t tried yet. but I will probably post about them when I do.
