my favorite new sweet treat!

— ♥ —

valentine’s day is almost here… looking for something cute to include in your sweetie’s bento?  i just had to share this adorable candy i found this week at my korean grocer.  it’s called “petit pastel,” and as you can see, it’s shaped like tiny ice cream cones!  the cones are chocolate, and the colored “scoops” are white-chocolate-covered malt balls.

you can view some cute engrish about the product at the manufacturer’s website, and you can buy it online at ebay (here or here), or at this japanese candy site.  (check your local asian market though — they were $1 cheaper at mine!)

and if you like what you see, stay tuned… tomorrow i’ll be posting details of this week’s giveaway, and the prize package includes an unopened box of petit pastel!

thanks jenn, glad i was able to get you in the holiday mood. these really are a delicious and fun little treat — i hope you’ll participate in the contest for a chance to win them! (you are such an asian market buff though, maybe you already have them?)

So sweet – and the perfect size. But I think I like your adorable little dish the best (oh and the paper as well – of course).

thanks karina, it’s a soy sauce dish, and it was super cheap from either pearl river mart or maybe even urban outfitters, something like that – glad you like it!

regarding the paper, oh how i deliberated between this paper and one with a cupcake print on it. the boyfriend voted for this one and ultimately it won out because of the upcoming holiday. phew — glad it was the right pick!
