Who doesn’t like chocolate? It can be eaten on its own or added to other food items for a richer taste. To help chocolate fanatics indulge in their guilt pleasure some more, Japan-based company Bourbon has come up with the genius idea of sliced chocolate. Much like sliced cheese or sliced ham, this easy-to-use confectionery delight can be enjoyed in a number of ways: as sandwiches, inside Swiss rolls, over pancakes or even as decorations.
This slivered sweet treat can be added to a range of recipes, and is much easier to use than the standard chocolate bar or the creamy spread available in supermarkets. One Twitter user, named Saito Mitsuhiro, posted a before-and-after image of his attempt to make a chocolate sandwich, using the sliced Bourbon pieces. The chocolate uniformly melted into the bread slices, creating a wonderfully rich snack that is sweet as well as savory.
The company’s website offers information about how these chocolate slices can be used to make a variety of delectable desserts, including chocolate-filled crepes, banana rolls and so on. Each pack contains five 2 mm-thick slices of “nama chocolate”, a type of confectionery that is richer in flavor than regular milk chocolate. Priced at around $27 for a dozen packs, the product can be purchased in bulk from Bourbon’s website.
