Game Changer: Chocolate Squares in Japan

Game Changer: Chocolate Squares in Japan

This is a game changer; in Japan, you can buy chocolate squares just like you would cheese squares

In Japan, chocolate squares have been brought out by Bourbon, a chocolate company (although all evidence would point to whisky).

The chocolate is called “nama chocolate,” and is a rich, creamy confectionary said to be not quite as sweet as fudge, but distinctly stronger in flavour than ordinary milk chocolate.

According to Rocket News, the squares are sold in supermarkets, but can be bought through Bourbon’s online shop here. Online orders can only be placed for bulk bundles of a dozen five-slice packs (which cost 3,240 yen which is roughly the equivalent of $27 USD or $209 HKD).

This is better than peanut butter. It can be used in crepes, chocolate banana rolls, with sliced fruit, on top of crackers and even could be melted for the dessert version of a cheese toastie.

We're not sure if this awful or excellent, but it's certainly convenient if nothing else. Some might argue it is the best thing since sliced bread. Given it's practically the chocolate equivalent of sliced bread, we'd have to agree.
