best chocolate biscuits ever  
for those who have not seen the light, the below is a chocolate biscuit from ishiya chocolate factory in sapporo, hokkaido, japan.

this was my last piece from sharlene, kept many months till i finally caved in in march to give myself a super-lush treat one evening after work. not before capturing it on camera though. :)

so, is anyone heading to japan?

i'll be there in october and at the moment the plan is to try and get to hokkaido (and thus probably sapporo).

i need details - details!!! ;)

i've been told they're available in the airports and stores in hokkaido because they're so darn popular! but it would rock if you can go visit the chocolate factory!

sigh. i wanna go too!

I bought 2 boxes - one white, one milk chocolate… but they are ALL GONE.
You just can't keep them lying around. Especially not with roommates around.
