Valentine chocolates

Sea salt chocolate

Bof. I’ve been neglecting this blog. However, here is a picture of the chocolates I gave Yusuke for Valentine’s Day, from Suite 88 (aka heaven).

The mosaic box set includes:

  • Amaretto
  • Caramel anglais (English caramel)
  • Espresso
  • Érable (maple)
  • Fleur de sel (sea salt)
  • Florentin (with orange and honey)
  • Limoncello
  • Rhum raisin
  • Praline
  • Thé vert (green tea with white chocolate)

I also bought some truffles: green tea, praline, and milk chocolate, but they didn’t stick around long enough for a picture.

In Japan, it’s customary for girls to give guys chocolates for Valentine’s Day. There are two categories of giving: 1) 義理チョコ (giri-choco) or “obligation chocolates” for people you don’t really care about, and 2) 本命チョコ (honmei-choco) for your “real” Valentine.

The guys return the favour with gifts to women one month later on White Day (conveniently close to my birthday).
