[Morinaga]Dars Ganache /”[森永]DARS ガナッシュ”

Japanese chocolate snacks are usually very good.
Today I would like to tell you about a looks-quite-fancy chocolate
It also includes some alcohol. Be careful when you give it to children.


Here is a very famous Japanese chocolate “DARS”!!
Dars means dozen. well, pronunciation is quite different.
It has 12 pieces of chocolate in a box, as its name says.
It has several flavors, and this one is called “DARS Ganache”.
It is a seasonal flavor. As its name says, it contains some ganache in it.

By the way Japanese people love French language so much that they give French names to their products, shops, or pets quite frequently.


looks quite fancy, no?
I feel like Japanese snacks are very well wrapped in general.
It is safe for you to carry around or just leave them in your bag.
They rarely collapse.

Inside there is another metal bag.
There is a discussion that Japanese people are wasting so much wrapping paper.
I agree on that to some extent, seeing a lot of trash in the trash can in my room.

There is notice that says it contains some alcohol.


Now, I will taste it!
there are 12 cutie pieces of chocolate there.
Thanks to this chocolate I was able to remember the meaning of the English word “dozen”.
I love this name which is simple as well as perfect.


the taste is… great! A bit of too much sweetness, but in winter you will miss this rich and deep taste.
and as they say there is some softer part in one piece where they have ganache.
it melts in my mouth definitely.
It is worth trying if you are in Japan in winter.
