The flavor of pancakes and strawberry syrup in a one-bite chocolate? I love this kind of Willy Wonka magic! Straight from Japan, Salon de Look Ichigo Pancake chocolates present a great fantasy of reconstituted foods that are delicious. In actuality, it's not a bad bonbon but the reality certainly doesn't fit the fantasy. I would never guess that the bite was supposed to taste like pancakes and strawberry syrup. There's a nice layer of strawberry jelly and then a creamy layer that tastes like vanilla with a tiny mini hint of wheat. Weird. There's nothing familiar that can be compared. They're worth a try but not that compelling after the first few bites.
