Potato and Chocolate
Whether or not you like dipping your french fries into your milkshake, potatoes and chocolate are, without a doubt, a powerful pair! Japan seems to agree, especially with chocolate-covered potato chips being one of the most popular souvenir snacks from Hokkaido!
Get your own taste of Hokkaido homegrown potatoes with Jaga Pokkuru, a crispy potato stick snack cut just like French fries, alongside silky smooth Hi Milk chocolate cubes. See just why buttery delicious potatoes and chocolate are a well-loved duo!
Spice and Chocolate
Have you eaten curry with chocolate in it before? This might seem like an unusual pairing to think about, but adding chocolate to curry recipes is fairly common in Indian and Japanese curry recipes! Chocolate adds an extra level of velvety smoothness and flavor, and we’re definitely fans.
Crunch into these curry cashew nuts with chocolate-covered barley puffs to sample this flavor combo. Top that off with the nuttiness from the cashews and the roasted flavor from the wheat puffs for a rich texture and flavor experience!
If you enjoy hot chocolate with spices mixed in, we’re also sure you will like our spicy, heart-shaped senbei rice crackers with some of our other Japanese chocolates. Don’t let the cute shape of these tiny hearts fool you. They pack a peppery punch!
Cheesy but Sweet
For our readers who are fond of the rich contrast of salted caramel or a cheese platter with fruit and wine, we highly recommend the Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory Honey and Gorgonzola cookies. Salty gorgonzola cheese is paired with the sweetness of Spanish rosemary honey in these delicate sandwich cookies.
Egg and Pancakes
Who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner or, really, any time of the day? For the brunch lovers who enjoy digging into a stack of flapjacks, here’s the perfect Japanese snack combo for you! Get your eggs with Tamago Kake Gohan, a soy-sauce-flavored egg puff snack inspired by the traditional Japanese breakfast of a raw egg cracked over hot rice. Pair that up with mini maple syrup pancakes or these white chocolate sandwich cookies made to taste like maple-drizzled pancakes!
