Meiji Apollo,together with Meiji Marble Chocolate,is a famous and popular chocolate known as a long-seller in Japan.
The long-seller Japanese chocolate candy has a two-layer structure.The upper part has a strawberry flavor and the lower part is milk chocolate.The product rarely includes a chocolate whose upper strawberry chocolate and lower milk chocolate are reversed.
Meiji Apollo was released on August 7,1969.In July of that year,Apollo 11 succeeded in landing on the moon’s surface.
As you can guess and as the name of the product indicates,the Japanese chocolate candy is designed in the motif of the command spaceship of Apollo 11 and it was put on sale in commemoration of Apollo 11’s landing on the moon.
Meiji Apollo has been loved by many Japanese from adults to children,including me,because it has a delicious taste that hasn’t changed for a long time.
The Apollo chocolate is mild in taste and flavor and the combination of the strawberry chocolate and the milk chocolate is excellent!
If you are a chocolate candy addict,Meiji Apollo is a yummy Japanese strawberry chocolate candy that is worth trying.The chocolate candy is also recommended as a treat for kids!
