Ghana Milk Chocolate: Lotte’s First Milk Chocolate
Lotte is a leading confectionery maker founded by a Korean businessman named Shin Kyuk-ho in 1948 in Tokyo, who is also known by the Japanese name, Takeo Shigemitsu.
Lotte Ghana Milk Chocolate
At the time of its foundation, Lotte mainly manufactured chewing gum, but afterward, in 1964, the company first introduced milk chocolate by the brand name of Ghana Chocolate.
Since it was released, the combination of the red package box and the golden logo letters has never been changed, by which people can instantly tell Lotte Milk Chocolate apart from its counterparts like Morinaga Milk Chocolate or Meiji Milk Chocolate.
In the current edition, the milk chocolate bar is wrapped in shiny, brilliant pink foil paper.
The chocolate bar can be broken into up to 24 small blocks along the ridges.
As you can see in the picture above, each block has the logo letters “Lotte” engraved on the top surface.
As for the taste, I think there are no big differences between the milk chocolate bars from Lotte, Morinaga, and Meiji; They are all nicely milky with a gentle moderate sweetness.
So every time I have a craving for milk chocolate, I choose one of them according to the mood of the moment.
