Last year about this time, I went to an English fair at a local department store. Well, the same department store had another English fair which started yesterday.
They had a wide selection of teas as well as food items. Even a wine bar and whiskey corner.
Since I tried the tea and biscuits last year, I decided to get chocolates this time.
Prestat's Choxi 63% dark chocolate bar says it is rich in antioxidants on the wrapper...can't wait to try this...525 yen (about US$5.25) (Their bon-bons were still outrageously priced.)
William Curley, a chocolatier and patissier, was also featured for the first time in Kansai. He had several bon-bons as well as truffles and chocolate bars.
I bought the bon-bons...420 yen each (about US$4.20 each)
(top row)toasted sesame, green tea, earl grey, Japanese black vinegar
(bottom row)thyme with scottish heather honey, salted caramel & passion fruit with mango.
I really liked the passion fruit with mango, earl grey & salted caramel. All of the ganache fillings were well flavored and matched the coating chocolates.
Though the chocolates were pricey, it was a nice chance to try these products from the U.K.
