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.
Confectionary brand Meiji has released a new line of chocolate bars called The Chocolate. These bars contain a higher percentage of cacao, come in an assortment of flavors, and are available with varying levels of bitterness. You can find them in Japan’s convenience stores, priced around 237 yen per bar.
