After hearing that Tofu Cute are stocking the new licensed Gudetama chocolate range by Creighton’s Chocolaterie, we had to do a taste test. I shared these with Nicolette (and her workmates!) so read on to see what we thought.
There’s 5 different chocolate bars available and I picked up 3 for us to try: Sunny-side Up, Five More Minutes and a Gudetama egg (the other two in the range are popping candy and a small milk chocolate bar). They all looked really high quality with super cute Gudetama packaging.
Sunny-side Up – Dark Chocolate with Yuzu
Marceline: I love citrus flavours and Japan has many citrus fruits you don’t see in the UK including yuzu. It’s been paired with dark chocolate, which is generally my favourite so this was bound to be a winner with me. I would buy it again for sure.
Nicolette: My favourite one. I definitely could taste the fruity yuzu which stops it being too bitter. Really yummy. Even my colleague who doesn’t usually like dark chocolate liked it!
Five More Minutes – Milk Chocolate with Bacon & Toast
M: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this and it was quite strange! It has little crunchy bits throughout, which are supposed to taste of bacon and toast. It’s not very bacon-y though – more a little salty, smoky and savoury. It’s not the jokey gag gift I might have imagined and worth trying. It’s even vegetarian!
N: Nicer than I expected! Smelled like smoky bacon crisps with nice crunch and subtle bacon aftertaste. My colleagues who didn’t know what it was didn’t guess bacon though.
White Chocolate Gudetama
M: This was too cute not to buy! As you can see from the second photo, it’s really well made with a proper fried egg shape – I was impressed that there was a whole yolk inside and not just a bit of yellow on top. I’m not a big fan of white chocolate and found it a bit bland overall. It would have been nice if the yolk was a different flavour to break it up.
N: Nothing special but looked cute. Nice quality creamy white chocolate.
We’d definitely recommend these for any chocolate-loving kawaii fan. They’re a little more expensive than your average bar or chocolate at £4.20-£4.50 each but they’re high quality with interesting flavours and look adorable.
