Hokkaido yummies

Dad brought along more goodies this morning. I guess he needed to sort out the stuff he bought from Hokkaido, and he had come on Friday right after arriving on Thursday night, so was too rushed to properly sort out his luggage. Hehe. Anyway, he brought us lots of goodies today and princess had a field day in the car munching on goodies. The two little green packs in the front of picture were very delicious but we only got a handful of each. He also won a cow soft toy from some bingo game at the onsen. He said when he was carrying the soft toy around, some Japanese men were pulling at the nose string n the tail, how funny. They probably found it cute.

This was cocoa-covered tiramisu chocolate with almonds. Delicious!

And these triangular packets actually hold pistachios within. We usually get them with peanuts over here. Very lovely too and fragrant.

I love the packaging of these biscuits which come in three flavours - chocolate, seaweed, and plain butter. Isn't it cute, the tudor-style shop?

This is a famous brand from Hokkaido, if I'm not wrong, and I believe Peony has ever blogged about it. In fact, all the goodies pictured came from the same brand. What a nice touch with the flowers on the box which they got from the shop. He gave a second box which he bought from the wholesaler which does not come with the floral bouquet.

There's another box of strawberry chocolate biscuits which he got for his darling granddaughter.
