Kitsune no Shippo is a flaky roll of pie dough that is topped with maple white chocolate and baked into the shape of an adorable fox cub’s tail. The sweet creamy chocolate coating of this Hokkaido-exclusive snack complements the buttery pastry without being cloying. Foxes can be found throughout Japan, including in Hokkaido where the Ezo Red Fox is slightly larger than its Honshu counterparts. They play a large role in Japanese folklore and are known to guard Shinto shrines or become shape-shifting tricksters. Don’t worry though, no tricks with this fluffy fox tail pastry!

Please Note: As the weather heats up, it becomes more difficult to guarantee chocolate will arrive in good condition. If temperatures in your location are above 23°C (73°F), chocolates may arrive slightly damaged. At temperatures above 28°C (82°F), the products may melt in transit. We cannot be held responsible for any temperature-related damages caused during shipping.
