    I found a “lucky star” in my pack! Does anyone know what it means anything special? Unfortunately I can’t read Japanese so I don’t know what it says, all I know is now I don’t want to eat this one haha!

      Thanks for the comment!
      I researched the lucky star online and found out it was created in 2019 when the product marked 50 years since its first release. I couldn’t find the meaning of it, but the star is associated with outer space!

    I also found the star and upon checking there are two sayings..
    1. eat the meiji chocolate dividing the two part the strawberry and the chocolate and if you divided the two cleanly you’ll be lucky..
    2. if you found the star shape you’ll be lucky..
