Meiji Almond Chocolate with 2020 Limited Design
The roasted almond coated in milk chocolate, Almond Chocolate, also called Almond Choco, is one of the most beloved sweet treats in Japan and comes in 3 popular products.
One is Almond Chocolate from Ezaki Glico that was released in 1958, another is Almond Chocolate introduced by Lotte in 1983, and the last is what I bought today, Meiji’s Almond Chocolate that went on the market in 1962.
Meiji Almond Chocolate
This edition of Meiji Almond Chocolate has a limited design associated with The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
But the inside of the box is the same as usual and 21 pieces of shiny chocolate balls are seen.
The description on the back of the box says that the almond used in the egg shaped chocolate is selected by stricter standards than the ones defined by United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A).
In fact, the roasted almond inside is fresh with a pleasant, crunchy texture that makes you satisfied. Besides, the chocolate covering is quite milky and not overly sweet, making the chocolate ball very easy to eat and addictive.
