Ghana Milk Chocolate: Lotte’s First Milk Chocolate

Lotte is a confectionery maker founded by a Korean businessman named Shin Kyuk-ho (also known by the Japanese name Takeo Shigemitsu) in 1948 in Tokyo.

Today, many sweets from Lotte have long been favorites in Japan through the generations, which include Koume CandyYukimi Daifuku, and a variety of chewing gum and chocolate.

At the time of its foundation, Lotte mainly manufactured chewing gum. But later, in 1964, the company first introduced milk chocolate named Ghana Chocolate.

Since it was released, the combination of the red package and the golden logo letters has never changed, by which we can instantly recognize the chocolate.


As for the contents, the shiny brilliant pink foil paper wraps the chocolate bar in the current edition.

As you can see in the photo, you can break the chocolate into 24 small blocks along the ridges.

Each block has the logo letters Lotte engraved on the top surface.


Taste-wise, I can’t find significant differences between the milk chocolate bars from Lotte and Morinaga/Meiji.

They are all deliciously milky with a gentle sweetness. So when I crave milk chocolate, I choose one according to my mood.
