So me too, I'll decide to send my sisiter for her birthday on 18th Feb and for my family.

Last night I was taking a look on online shopping at the departmentstore project.It's showing us a variety of select chocolates of the world.

 I'm having very happy time to think of my blog followes of the world.

Anyway my choices are..


Van Dender from Belgium


Lohenstein from Germany

Caffarel from Italy-pretty isnt it?

Micheran Buran from France -factory is near byToulouse, Floss!!;))

This is a rare chocolate made of camel milk
which is less fat. Good news for dieter;)

Eee! :)
I love your little online chocolate shopping! It is very clever.
Arigato!!! You are so sweet to remember your blogging friends from ALL over the world :)
Camel milk! I have never heard of! How interesting.

Did you buy yourself something?
You must next tell us, which types are your favourite chocolates, Mami! Yes, and are there famous chocolates in Osaka? :)

You know, I have not tried Hefti Jeunesse before. I must keep my eyes opened for them. I only buy those from the supermarket. And even supermarket chocolates are SO delicious!

Good morning Mami..well it 8am and I've just woken up! It's going to be a lovely sunny Sunday here!
You featured Caffarel I see..but they are expensive, the most popular chocolates for S.Valentine's Day in Italy are Baci Perugina (Bacio means "kiss"), they come in a silver paper with blue stars and have a love quote inside. You can buy them through all the year, but for S.Valentine's Day they are sold in particular packages with lovely gadgets..
Lovers use to exchange chocs, flowers, perfumes or going out for dinner..the last trend sees to be treatments in wellness centres or spas..Italians are very stressed people, ha ha ha!
You bought really a great selection, your sister will be delighted to receive them!

Oooooh - they all look so delicious :-)
My mouth is definately watering!!!
Everyday I eat one (or two, sometimes 3) Lindt chocolate. Dark chocolate with raspberry filling or dark chocolate with peppermint.
Its sooooo enjoyable.
I used to eat large size cadbury blocks of chocolate each day, but now I have cut-down and just spoil myself everyday with small amounts of Lindt.
I think this is smarter - right???!! - Definately less fattening anyway.

Happy chocolate shopping! :-)

They look so delicious, Mami! I will try to find out more about the chocolatier near Toulouse (and do some chocolate testing! ;)

I really like to buy Fair Trade chocolate, where the chocolate farmers have been given a fair wage and good work conditions. Can you buy Fair Trade in Japan?

I love chocolate very much Mami! Everyday I carry chocolate in my handbag and I eat at least a bar of chocolate a day. Can't help it!I love Swiss and Italian Chocolate the most. Loacker and Ferrero Rocher are my favourite Italian chocolate.

Your chocolates look delicious. I don't really have any recommendations to add. I would like to try to Arab chocolate to see what the camel milk chocolate tastes like, but I don't think I would like to pay $10 per piece!

Lovely selecton Mami:)
have you ever tried Polish chockolates? They are very tasty as well. I'm not very fond of sweets but the smell of fresh chockolate is great. I love dark one with a hint of chilly and i do love hot chockolate:)
Greetings!
