Japanese pudding shaped chocolates05 August, 2012 by Chad
Meant to look like a small container of pudding, Puchi Purin (プチプリンチョコ) by Kabaya is a deceptive looking treat. The packet of Puchi Purin contain a whole bunch of chocolates shaped like tiny puddings, but the similarities end there.
Each Puchi Purin costs 105 yen (about SGD$1.70), though it can be found at certain Singaporean supermarkets for $2.40 a packet. Despite its appearance, we were disappointed to discover that the contents was just simple mix of white and milk chocolate shaped like pudding.
It couldn’t had been that hard to add a little pudding or caramel flavoring but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. At this point, between this and the Easy Cookin Cookie Shop, I would probably advice to stay away from any Kabaya brand novelty candies.
