Kobe Ichibankan "Pomme d'AmourIchibankan is a long-established chocolate shop in Kobe. Starting with the main store in Motomachi, Kobe, this confectionery store also operates in famous department stores nationwide.
Its signature product is the "Pomme d'Amour. Fresh apples are boiled in honey for a long time and coated with bitter chocolate. The price is 1,350 yen (tax not included).
The outer box has a chic design based on brown tones. When you open it, you will find a chocolate wrapped like a candy in a shiny gold wrapper. I wonder if it is an apple.
The chocolate coating crumbles when you bite into it, and the cocoa flavor is soft and fluffy. Next, soft apples release juicy sweetness. The crunchy texture of the fresh apple pulp is still present and adds a nice accent. The balance between the sweet and sour apple and the bitter chocolate is exquisite.
Pomme d'Amour" is the perfect accompaniment to tea time. It would also make a thoughtful souvenir.
