“Campana Furano” is produced by an Obihiro-based company called Rokkattei in Hokkaido. Their signature “Marusei Butter Sand” and “Strawberry Chocolate” is one of popular omiyage in Hokkaido.
Rokkatei also makes seasonal confectioneries using seasonal ingredients.
“Campana Furano” is one of them, only available in autumn (usually around September).
It looks like big white chocolate balls. To my surprise, a whole raw grape was in each ball.
The grapes are grown in Campana Rokkatei in Furano, Hokkaido, a large vineyard with Rokkatei shops and a bell tower.
There are 17-27 pieces in a box. It is only available in autumn depending on the harvest of the grapes.
This very popular item can be purchased at Rokkatei shops and Rokktei official online store.
I couldn’t wait to try this seasonal speciality product.
I took it out of the fridge and popped one in my mouth.
FYI, these are not seedless grapes.
The moment I bit the sphere-shaped chocolate, the sour-sweet flavor of the grape filled my mouth.
The raw grapes were so fresh and juicy.
The white chocolate is smooth, melting in your mouth. I never knew white chocolate and grapes were a match made in heaven, it’s almost addicting.
The size and the shapes of each chocolate balls are different.
It is similar to “Daichi no Shizuku”, white chocolate balls with raw blueberries inside, only available in the summer.
Rokkatei lovers, this one is worth a try.
Shelf life is only 1-2 days. It is 480 yen for 17-27 pieces in a box.
