Japan Releases ‘Sweet Potato’ Raw Chocolate

Date published: 25 October 2020

On September 1 Japan’s northern confectioner, Royce, released its ‘Yaki imo’ flavored raw chocolate, and we can’t wait to try it!

Yaki imo literally means ‘cooked potato’ or ‘roast potato’, and is made with Japanese sweet potato. Coming home to a warm sweet potato is one of the many things about autumn that Japanese people look forward to!

And now, Royce, a famous Hokkaido chocolatier, has decided to put that essence of autumn into a ‘nama chocolate’ or ‘raw chocolate.’

The combination of the nama chocolate and Anno sweet potato makes for a rich and sweet snack. It is blended with a special type of sweet potato sake, known as Akakirishima for a deep yet soft flavor.

The packaging has the typical style reminiscent of a Japanese autumn, and the chocolates themselves are tantalizing in their pure and light form.

If you’re intrigued by the fall flavors of Japan, the nama chocolates can be bought online here: https://www.royce.com/
