Would you try these new Japanese Chocolate Chip Salt Watermelon Cookies? Ito chocolate, a famous chocolate and sweet maker, has created a new chocolate cookies with a very unlikely flavor: salt watermelon. What are the odds to choose this flavor in the West? Thin, obviously. However, Japan has made it yet again! And we’re happy for that! It will be released on May 23rd for all of us to enjoy. It’ll cost 220yen excluding tax. The dough cookies will have an amazing watermelon flavor with a pinch of salt, and chocolate cookies. Chocolate chips have tiny chocolate seeds for you to enjoy. The salt brings up the taste of watermelon, and the whole combination is just amazing.

Even if this flavor choice might seem somewhat unusual, it isn’t so for Japan. Sumer time is the time for enjoying watermelons on the seaside. Thus, Ito’s choice for watermelon just makes sense. Since summer is around the corner, so the watermelon flavor is the one to win this season!

If you’re travelling around Japan, stop by a convenience store or a supermarket and get your hands on them and try them out. If you’re interested in them and want to have tons of wonderful cookie boxes for you to try, let us know.

Remember, these wonderful cookies will be available from May 23! A box is plan to cost 220 yen excluding taxes. Don’t miss them!
