The Sadaharu Aoki Chocorons


I know, I've been posting about chocolate way too often.

But our White Day was just last week
and I found myself with this amazing box of chocoron.

I had to share the pictures!

In case you didn't know (like me)
Chocoron is a macaron covered in chocolate...YUM!!!


Also, they are apparently famous.
(I am so bad at remembering brand names)

These cute polk-a-dotted pieces of deliciousness
were created by the ever popular pâtissier Sadaharu Aoki.

Do you know him?


He is a pâtissier from Tokyo
currently based in Paris.

In 2007 he became a member of Relais Desserts.

He even won the Pudlo Paris award in 2011.
(which I believe means that he was the Pâtissier of the Year)

He has stores in Paris, Tokyo, and Taipei.

And he was one of the most popular pâtissier
for this year's White Day in Japan.



I am ashamed to say that I did not know about him
until I googled him after devouring his delicious chocorons.

So good. So so good.

But I'm pretty sure if you eat more than two at once
you will pass out from too much of this chocolate goodness.

(yes, I could not stop at one and ate two...I am not superwoman!)



This box of chocorons had six flavors:
Green Tea, Chocolate, Citrus, Framboise, Cassis, and Coffee.

My favorites were Citrus and Coffee.
And Framboise, too.

Don't they look delicious?


A big thank you to my coworkers
who waited in line for an hour and a half to
get us girls in our department this gift for White Day!

  1. Woman, you're torturing me!

    I started grinning (or wincing?) when I noticed where his stores are in Tokyo: Shinjuku Isetan, Marunouchi, Akasaka, Azabu-Juban. That will be expensive, but I'll just have to visit ...
