Meiji Cubie, a Japanese chocolate shaped into a cube with an added waxy coating.
Remember the time you broke off a piece chocolate with your bare hands and it started to melt? Well, this waxy layer helps prevent that.
The chocolate smells like cocoa powder you use for baking. A bitter, earthy scent. Which makes sense for being a black chocolate. I noticed it’s stronger than Hershey’s chocolate, and has a fraction of the sweetness. While the taste falls under my preference, the waxy coating was a turn off. It’s like licking a marble.

I found this at Mitsuwa Marketplace. And have also seen it at Nijiya Market.
One of my favorites are actually Meiji Black Chocolate Bar.
Have you tried this chocolate before?
