Meiji Rich Strawberry Package

We’re already familiar with the Japanese confectioner Meiji, who makes the most popular chocolate bars in Japan. I wasn’t too surprised when I found out according to Nikkei.net, this bar is #3 in popularity. Pretty impressive! The packaging is gorgeous, a nice beautiful bright strawberry/raspberry red color. The label in the top corner boasts the bar contains 70% fresh strawberry pulp. I hope so, because that sounds so good!

Meiji Rich Strawberry Bar

I was surprised when I opened the bar, because I was expecting the typical milk chocolate looking bar that was a nice rich brown color. To my surprise this bar was a rich maroon, almost the same color of the wrapper! So beautiful! It’s really red! I’ve never had a red candy bar before, and it reminds me of the rich color of a berry sorbet. It really looks like it’s mainly made of strawberries.

The taste is not chocolately at all (it is supposed to? I wonder…) which was what I was expecting. I’m glad it doesn’t because the bar really tastes of a fresh strawberry, as if you look strawberry jelly and turned it into a creamy candy bar. It’s amazing! The confection, upon biting it, is sweet with a fruity aftertaste and that is real to strawberry. Wow. The texture is creamy and smooth despite the bits of strawberry flesh that is mixed in. I’m hooked. Find some for yourself to try now!

    I got the green tea flavour of this chocolate bar, and it had a very nice light matcha flavour. I haven’t seen the strawberry flavour yet, but thanks to your review, I will definitely buy it when I see it! =)
