ChocolateBet: June 1, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

27 pieces
Meiji Seika Kaisha (Japan)
Gummy Choco - Apple flavor
Good +
Weight: 1.41 oz. (40 g.) serving/3.7 oz. (106 g.) in total tube container
Calories: 200 calories (estimate) in one 27-piece serving
Cost: $?
Purchased from: Mountain View Market, in downtown Mountain View, CA

Imagine small apple juice gel spheres surrounded by milk chocolate coatings. It's not every day that you see chocolate combined with apple (anything), except for those big caramel apples dipped in chocolate and sprinkles or nuts. So, I was interested to try these. And, to Meiji's credit, you can detect some actual apple taste. Unfortunately, due to the round (cardboard tube) container, I wasn't able to scan what this packaging looked like. I was able to scan the end label, and a bit of a Meiji cartoon chick frolicking amongst the gummy choco apple pieces. Alas, that was all.

Chocolate countdown: 6 more days until I eat my 1,000th different chocolate in as many days.
