A calendar of chocolate

A calendar of chocolate

My sister-in-law Y. visited last week at midnite, while I was sleeping. Like the husband, she’s a night owl. To celebrate my ceramics show starting this Friday, she left an extravagant chocolate calendar.

Two large boxes with two chocolates for each day of November and December, and six medium boxes for each day of the show. Daily flavors include pistachio, nuts praline, creamy cheese, peru/hi-milk, madagascar & indonesia java semi-sweet, cameroon & venezuela chuao milk.

It’s so delicious and very extravagant. It’s from the 100% Chocolate Cafe in Ginza. I want to take Y. there as a thank-you-excursion.

Will living in Japan shorten my life? With chocolate potato chips, at least it’ll be a happy life.

Apparently this is a common snack food here. (Note: the subtitle says in English: “By breaking down old customs and producing consistently original items, we are pursuing a new level of chocolate enjoyment”).

Thanks okaasan sensei (お母さん先生)!
