Sweet, nutty, chocolatey; a Japanese favourite.

For a sweet treat that is as fun to look at as it is to eat, Meiji's Takenoko no Sato chocolate biscuits are hard to beat. These bite-size almond flavoured biscuits are covered in a thin layer of creamy milk chocolate, then topped with a layer of slightly darker chocolate moulded into the shape of a little bamboo shoot.

Background

Japan is one country that has heartily embraced the idea of appearance being everything, at least when it comes to confectionery. From colourful mushroom shaped biscuits to adorable pudding shaped chocolates, the cute creative shapes the Japanese use for their confectionery is second to none. For a thorough insight into how creative Japanese snacks can be, take a look at Japan Centre's Confectionery range.
