You Can DIY Meiji's Strawberry-Chocolate Candy With This Berry Cute Kit
You can also order Japanese potato chips, coffee drinks, and more!
(SPOT.ph) Chances are, you've savored a box (or more) of Meiji Apollo—the Japanese strawberry-chocolate confection shaped like cones that are meant to resemble Mount Fuji. It's a fun, pop-in-your-mouth candy that's easy to get at most groceries and convenience stores, but guess what: we found a DIY kit that lets you make your own Apollo at home. It's called the Meiji Handmade Apollo (officially Meiji Tezukuri Apollo), and you can get it delivered!
Japanese grocery Tokyo Market PH sells the DIY kits and you can order them online. Each kit goes for P185, and contains everything you need to make your own handmade Apollo candies: tubes of chocolate, white cream, and pink cream, molds, a stick to assist you in molding, and a packet of colorful sprinkles. You can watch it in action here:
Tokyo Market also carries other Japanese snacks, drinks, and ingredients. If you love coffee, you'll want to try the ready-to-drink UCC Beans & Roasters Caffe Latte (P95/375 ml) or Doutor Cafe Au Lait (P95/480 ml). Planning to binge-watch on Netflix this weekend? Grab a bag of the Chip Star Nori Salt (P90) or Aerial Cheddar Cheese (P120). For a quick meal, stock up instant noodles like the Sanyo Sapporo Ichiban Tonkotsu (P340).
