As an alternative to offering conventional Valentine's Day chocolate gifts to consumers, Japan's Ogura Sanso created a unique gift box made with chocolate-coated rice crackers.

Inside the tube-shaped 'OGURA Chocolate Coated Arare Spicy Rice Cracker' gift box, there are a total of nine small bags, including four that contain white, bitter and matcha chocolates and five bags that contain sweet strawberry, milk and white chocolates. These OGURA chocolates were also offered as part of boxed sets for Valentine's Day in Japan.

While it is tradition for men to give women gifts for Valentine's Day in North America, Valentine's Day in Japan is a time where women do the gift-giving and men return the favor on White Day.
