Parfait a la mode

Parfait a la mode

It was time to open the Japanese LOOK chocolate from Meg and Fujie. It is a special flavour – Parfait A La Mode.

Parfait a la mode

There are four flavours of parfait – can you read them? Strawberry Parfait, Caramel Banana Parfait, Maccha Milk Parfait and Chocolate Parfait.

The back of the pack shows what’s inside the chocolate. All the chocolates have vanilla bean inside the vanilla ice-cream flavoured part.

The Caramel Banana Parfait is hands down the winner. The smiling ice-cream faces in the top pics are postcards from Loft.

One thing you can’t help but notice when you live in Japan is their obsession with parfaits (sundaes). To see an out-of-this-world matcha parfait, click here. To see a creme caramel and crepe parfait click here. To see a pretty pastel parfait, click here. To see a taiyaki (cake filled with red bean, in the shape of a fish) parfait, click here. And to view the craziest parfait you’ve ever seen, click here.

PS I’m totally obsessed with Bananagranola’s Flickr photostream, after reading about her in a super kawaii post on Epicute. She has 1000s of food pix and 62 pictures of wagashi (Japanese sweets) alone.
