Meiji Chocorooms

Chocorooms do not contain mushrooms of any kind. Let’s be clear about that. Not Red Belted Polypore, not Queen Boleti, not Morel. No mushrooms at all. Instead, these are “sweet and crispy” Japanese candies that happen to look like rather small mushrooms. They have cookie-like stems, with chocolate tops.

Okay, so what do these fake fungi taste like? Let’s start at the bottom. The stems are not tasty in the least. They’re very bland, like a really boring biscuit. They remind me of fortune cookies a little bit, too. They also leave a slight film in your mouth.

The chocolate of the mushroom tops tastes cheap. Like, Nestle Quick in mushroom-shaped chocolate form. It’s okay, but very flat and rather waxy. A look at the ingredients shows lots of extraneous junk that never improves the taste of chocolate, but lessens the cost with filler.

Now, the cookie stems do allow you to chomp on the chocolate tops without getting your fingers chocolaty, but lots of candies have figured out that trick.

Bottom line: if you think candies that look like mushrooms are irresistibly cute, then Chocorooms are for you. Otherwise, I’d resist.

Really, these mushrooms should be left in the candy forest.

    I remember these… Our Japanese exchange student brought some for us(fortunately, she also brought Hi-Chews, yum!), fortunately my brother liked them fine. They ARE very cute, but they just don’t taste good!
