Comparison of 7-ELEVEN's "low-sugar chocolate croissant" and Lawson's "NL glutinous barley plate chocolate roll"The "low-sugar" series is great for those who are concerned about sugar content, and recently convenience stores have been offering a variety of products in this category. This time, we are going to try a happy-go-lucky confectionery that is low in sugar content but still contains chocolate (!!). This time, we compared 7-ELEVEN's "low-sugar chocolate croissant" and LAWSON's "locavore" series "NL Glutinous Wheat Chocolate Roll", both of which are happy-go-lucky sweet breads that are low in sugar, but still contain chocolate (!)! Are they properly sweet? Which one tastes better? The results are as follows!
Comparison of taste, price, sugar content, calories, etc. In conclusion, I would like to tell you that I would recommend the 7-ELEVEN's "chocolate croissant with reduced sugar content" more! Both of them have chocolate protruding from both ends of the bread with a bang, and there is no question that they are satisfying as chocolate bread. However, the 7-ELEVEN's chocolate croissant was more satisfying, and I didn't really feel that it was sugar-free. Also, the price is about 30 yen cheaper at 7-ELEVEN.

7-ELEVEN "Sugar-Free Chocolate Croissant
This chocolate croissant is baked with a crisp, moist texture and chocolate rolled into the dough. The price is 140 yen (151.20 yen including tax). It contains 221 kcal, 12.6 g of dietary fiber, and only 11.8 g of sugar. Generally, a single chocolate croissant has about 20g (0.71oz) of sugar (depending on the size and other factors), so it is thought that the sugar content is roughly reduced to almost half.
The dough is moist, but also has a slightly crispy texture when you bite into it. It is a relatively light croissant. At the same time, it is the texture of the "kokkisu" chocolate that hits the palate. It is a thick bar, thick and quite satisfyingly chocolatey. The chocolate tastes slightly bitter and moderately sweet! The slight wheat sweetness of the dough was perfectly balanced with the bittersweet cocoa.

The dough has a "mo-sa-fu-kak" texture. It has a rustic, plant-derived flavor and aroma, like whole wheat or bran bread. Looking at the ingredients, I was convinced that a mix of soy flour and barley flour (glutinous barley flour) was used.
The chocolate is flat and crunchy, and tastes sweeter than 7-ELEVEN's. It has a mild milk chocolate flavor. It tastes sweeter than 7-ELEVEN's. It has a mild milk chocolate flavor. The chocolate is slightly sweet, so it mixes well with the light dough in the mouth!
PostscriptI recommended the 7-ELEVEN's chocolate croissant because it was less "sugar-off" and I personally like bitter chocolate, but both were delicious sweet breads that satisfied my sweet tooth and satisfied my taste buds as well as my heart. I think you can enjoy them without feeling guilty when you are hungry!
