Fujiya Peko Poko Chocolate Lollipops
These Fujiya brand Peko Poko chocolate lollipops are so cute! There's definitely something perverse about biting into a piece of chocolate shaped like a someone's face, but I guess we bite the heads off chocolate Easter bunnies without a second thought, so why not these? Unfortunately, they don't taste very good. In order to make the chocolate candy retain its complex form, the consistency of the chocolate mixture is super waxy and brittle and pretty much devoid of flavor. It was not in the least bit delicious. I guess I liked the idea of eating these little character-shaped lollipops more than I actually enjoyed tasting them. Thanks, Mom, for finding these!
