Cacao Sampaka (2010-09-09)
Imported from Spain, this maker has been serving the royalty for
many years. The only shop in Japan so far is located in
ultra-posh Marunouchi (). The shop is small with limited number of
chocolates in the counter like jewels being displayed.
Photography is prohibited (don't you hate stores that do that?) but you
can take a look at the picture on their website.
KL and I didn't go there to buy chocolates (we are quite happy with
the less expensive brands), we went for their icecream.
They only serve one kind of icecream: chocolate (of course) in a
chocolate cone. At 450Yen/US$5 a pop, it's less expensive than we
However, the taste was disappointing. For an icecream made by a renowned chocolatier, it's completely lacking in intense chocolateness. Even the cone had nary a chocolate taste. I think a $1 Glico (the company that makes all those yummy Pocky) Giant chocolate icecream cone tastes far better and much more chocolatey than Cacao Sampaka's!
