So by now you've seen both Adina and Chad post photos relating to that wonderful Japanese treat known as Melty Blend. (It used to be called Melty Kiss when I lived in Japan, who knows why they changed it ...) Well now it is my turn! We went to Han Ah Reum last weekend and they didn't have any Melty Blend left and we were sad. We went again today and I thought "Well why don't I see if they happened to put more out" and sure enough, there were about 6 or 7 boxes of the pure chocolate kind and a bunch of the "strawberry" and "milk" flavors as well. I grabbed two more boxes of the chocolate kind. I love Melty Blend. It is a little square of what they call "nama chocoleto" which is kind of like the chocolate you would find in a truffle (very rich and kind of soft). It has a dusting of cocoa powder on the outside. Of course each one is individually wrapped so it is kind of wasteful, but it helps them stay good longer. I'm so excited that Han Ah Reum carried them this year! Hopefully this is the start of a new trend.
