Japanese Snack: Shiroi Kobito 白い恋人 Review

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Konichiwa  I came across this snack on my news feed for quite some time and didn't have a chance to try it out. I finally saw it in Shojikiya and quickly bought it to try! It is not cheap at all, it costs about RM49.50 for a box of 12 cookies.

Shiroi Koibito (白い恋人) translates as White Lover; is a European-style cookie manufactured and sold by Japanese confectionery maker Ishiya Co., Ltd. in Sapporo, Hokkaido. It consists of chocolate sandwiched between langue de chat(translates: cat's tongue). The package design is in white and light blue with a picture of Rishiri Island's Mount Rishiri in the middle of the box. It also has a lot of French words on it.

I love how Japanese wrap their snacks in a "wrapping paper", feels like opening a present.

It matches the Hokaido snowy theme right?

One box consists of 12 individually packed cookies.

The cookie has a buttery thin and airy crunch that melts in the mouth. The white chocolate sandwiched inside is quite thick but it is soft and spreads out evenly. I find that the white chocolate is too sweet to my liking but I love the cookie part so much! It has a slight taste of coconut and it is not oily or dry at all.

Rating: 4/5

Will I repurchase? Not that often but yes! It's kinda pricy to eat it all the time.

Price: A box of 12 cookies costs about RM49.50.

Availability: You can purchase it at any convenient store in major stations, Narita or Haneda Airport in Japan. For Malaysians, you can purchase in Shojikiya locally.
