I came across these little marshmallows one day while browsing my local Japanese grocery store and had to try them.
They are fluffy little pillows filled with strawberry jelly and are as tasty as they are adorable. I highly recommend!
I was inspired by an experience I had at work the other day in which a coworker stopped me on my way out, pulled me over to the hallway and quietly (in a drug dealer kinda way) offered me 5 different Mexican candies, which he said he was nervous to try and was therefore going to either give them away or put them in the trash. I didn’t want to stay, and frankly, wasn’t in the mood to change his view, so I took them, told him they were delish and left the office annoyed but trying really hard not to judge my coworker as an ignoramus. I had the idea as I was driving home, to feature a different candy from around the world on my blog every week because I’m not afraid to try something new even if I can’t read the label.
This sexist candy bar was made available in my local Fresh and Easy market so I decided it would be an interesting first entry to this new weekly feature, Foreign Candy Friday. Yorkie is a chunky milk chocolate bar, which was marketed as being “not for girls”, and even had an image of a female in a crossed out letter “O” on the wrapper, spelling out the name of the bar.
The chocolate is creamy and has a nice chocolate flavor, although nothing special. The sexist slogan was done away with a few years ago.
Below is a Yorkie commercial:
