Have you had Koeda, which is a vary popular chocolate snack in Japan?
They have produced a seasonal flavor! Strawberry.
This snack is named “Koeda” meaning “little branch” in Japanese.
It looks like a branch usually, when it has got the color of chocolate.
this time we have strawberry flavor!
We have strawberry in winter in Japan, that is why strawberry flavor comes in winter.
I am quite sure they are actually able to produce strawberry “flavor” anytime in the year though.
So now, tasting.
Honestly, I am not a big fan of strawberry flavor since it is usually too sweet.
But regarding this specific chocolate, I was not very bothered by the fake flavor.
It tastes like strawberry to some extent, as it has slightly sour flavor.
It is limited seasonal product. Do not miss it!
