Key chains, t-shirts, and trinkets are popular souvenir and gift items that tourists bring home for friends and loved ones. As for food items, chocolates and native delicacies top the bill as home coming gifts. Since we are all certified chocolate lovers, my sister got us a bunch of Royce goodies and a box of Chocolate Crunch from her trip to Tokyo Disneyland. The kids got their own boxes of Disney Chocolates but having my own box of Mickey Mouse Chocolates sure made me feel like a child again.
There was nothing extraordinary about the chocolate. They were simply milk chocolates filled with rice crisps. I got a hint of nutty flavor and bits on it when I ate it but I couldn’t be sure as the labels were printed in Japanese. They may be simple chocolates but they sure did the job of sweetening the conversation as we munched on them while my sister shared with us her Tokyo Disneyland experience.
