Today is White Day
in Japan; Valentine’s day
for girls. My daughters got a really lovely present with a REALLY unfortunate name. These delightful character chocolates and macaroons come to you from the Royal Gastro Club
. Where I’m from gastro
is short for gastroenteritis, which is basically the stomach flu! Thankfully these culinary delights did not cause any stomach upset, although if truth be told they were a bit too sweet even for me.
They came in a cute paper house package, with the characters peeping out the window. The girls delighted in opening the door.
Inside there were macaroons in the shape and design of animal faces.
And chocolate cats.
There was a selection of different types of cats, but my kids ate most of them before I could snap them!
