Japan’s convenience stores are a haven for a quick bite, canned alcoholic drinks, and a plethora of interesting snacks. While fried chicken and bottled lattes are choice items, artisanal chocolate is now being added to store shelves.

You can find them in Japan’s convenience stores, priced around 237 yen per bar.
