Blending freeze-dried tomatoes with creamy white chocolate to create a rich flavor of sweet and sour, Chocolat de Tomato earns a high ranking on the list of super strange snacks.
Japan is the birthplace of tons of interesting food combinations so, for many people, this addition shouldn't come as a surprise. In fact, when placed next to products like apple and squid ink cakes, hot coffee in a can, and crunchy fried turtle shells, tomato-flavored chocolate actually seems pretty tame. However, there currently seems to be a tomato craze happening in Japan that has given rise to new products such as tomato ramen, tomato soda, and now, tomato chocolate.
So, if you happen to find yourself in Japan, and you happen to love both chocolate and tomatos, you might still find this product disgusting. But that shouldn't stop you from giving Chocolat de Tomato a try! At the very least you'll emerge from the experience with a broadened flavor palette.
