Meiji Chocolife Green Tea Chocolate



I'm feeling slightly lazy today so no food review but rather than dissapoint all of you, here's my tip of the day. Don't worry, it's just a temporary glitch in the week and I'll be back with food reviews the next day.

If you love chocolates and Japanese flavours like green tea, you will want to head down towards Hartamas Shopping Centre to try this. Meiji, the major Japanese chocolate brand has a new line of chocolate known as Chocolife. There's a total of eight flavours: chocolate (60% mass), black sugar, milk, orange, strawberry, green tea and etc. I've only managed to find the Japanese website to it as per
this link which shows the Japanese television commercial for the chocolates.

Till to date, this is the only place I know which is selling it (I know Isetan does not stock this range) and each bar costs RM3.50. Kinda pricey as there's only four squares but we were curious on how it will taste like. Besides the Chocolife range, they also have the Meiji dark chocolates with 99% cocoa mass. So far, we have tasted the green tea and orange flavours. Didn't really like the orange one as I kinda expected it to be dark chocolate paired with orange but it was white chocolate instead. The green tea is much better.

Drop by to try it and if you're a Japanese food lover like me, you'll be fascinated with their other food items too. Incidentally if you love white plates, crockery and glass cake stands, the Esque and Alfresco people are back. They'll be selling their wares there until the 18th of March so you can pick up great deals to stock up your house. This was the place I found really good deals for my cake stands.

I wonder if these chocolates are available anywhere in the States? They look fabulous.

lady amalthea - try the Japanese specialty shops as I'm sure they must have it. We have quite a large Japanese expatriate market hence we get a lot of Japanese products. It tastes really good too!

boo_licious said...

meiyen - they have the wafer ice cream now. Wanted to try that day but decided not to.

tummythoz - the japanese make really good snacks. Think Pocky, wasabi snacks, bourbon crackers and etc. Yum!

babe_kl - dangerous place for people who love to snack. I love their food items too. Now they even print out recipes for you in English so easier to make them.

i absolutely adore dark chocolate paired with oranges! now you've made me think of leonidas's chocolate covered orange peel...mmm...
-sooyin-

boo_licious said...

sooyin - awww, I love Leonidas but it's usually the white hazelnut pralines which is my fav. Definitely cheaper to fly in one box with friends rather than the cut throat prices in KL.

I need to get this when I go back, goshh..the US chocolates are mostly sugar and milk, hardly I get even close to 70% cocoa :(

boo_licious said...

melting wok - get Lindt as they have 70% to 85% range which they definitely sell in the USA.
