This box of chocolates by Fujiya, called Look A La Mode Chocolate, contains four flavours: coffee, strawberry, almond and banana. There’s a total of twelve chocolates in the package, three of each flavour. They’re supposed to be individual chocolates, but as you can see mine were stuck together unfortunately.
This chocolate had a nice, recognizable, coffee flavour to it, but it’s not too overpowering. Even as someone who doesn’t love coffee; I still enjoyed it because the flavour wasn’t too strong. The filling was slightly creamy and the coffee flavour fit well with the chocolate.
The filling clearly had a strawberry flavour, which is slightly sour but mainly very sweet. It had a creamy texture and a pink colour, as expected from the picture on the packaging. I liked the flavour and thought the strawberry filling went well with the chocolate.
Less creamy than the other fillings, it was a bit more dry and harder than the other ones. It didn’t have a very strong flavour to it, more of a hint of almond rather than an actual almond flavour. The filling was overpowered by the other layer of chocolate. Overall I liked the flavour but I wouldn’t have guessed it was almond. The filling was also a lot less orange than suggested on the packaging.
The banana one didn’t have a very strong banana flavour, it mainly just tasted artificial, sweet and a little like there might be a bit of alcohol in it. The filling was white, while I expected it to have a hint of yellow in it as suggested by the picture on the back of the packaging. I don’t think the chocolate went very well with the filling, this was my least favourite one.
For all of these the outer layer of chocolate was the same, which didn’t taste a lot like chocolate at all. It reminded me more of chocolate flavoured fondant, with which you cover cakes. It was very sugary and sweet.
I expected the chocolates to be wrapped, with an indication of the flavour on the wraps, individually, to prevent the melted together mess my chocolates turned into.
