Osaka: Chocolate The Exhibition

I definitely have a sweet tooth, and love all things chocolate – milk chocolate, hot chocolate, chocolate scented and chocolate design.

So of course I went to see Chocolate The Exhibition in Osaka.

 

 

I also tried to dress a little chocolate-y, sadly I dont own any AP prints like Melty Chocolate or Royal Chocolate anymore, so wore Melty Donuts. I added my chocolate shoes from Jelly Beans, and as many confectionery based accessories as possible.

The exhibit was in the Event Lab space in Grand Front Osaka.

It cost 1300yen each to enter, which I think is a little expensive but a typical price for a museum in Japan.

At least the tickets were cute.

Inside there were displays on the origins of chocolate, how it is made, chocolate in Europe and then chocolate in Japan.

Some old chocolate packaging from Europe, it was fun spotting the products we grew up with. Frys chocolate, Nestle, and Mars bars.

The Japanese chocolate section was great too, they had displays of Pocky and Look packaging throughout the years and some old TV adverts were shown.

At the end were some displays of chocolate animals.

Cute and delicious.

Photo op!

There was also a small goods store at the end, all we bought was a small tasting set of dark chocolate.

I really wanted to eat some rich delicious chocolate after all that, but there was no cafe, pop up cafe, or cafe collaboration with the exhibit.

After hunting and googling and checking several department stores for what I wanted we found one, only to find out at ordering they were sold out. Grr. Instead we went to the Hankyu food hall and J bought me a slice of sachertorte.

Perfect.

All in all we had a nice time at the Chocolate The Exhibition, but it would have been even nicer to have some free samples!

The event is on until Feburary 15th.
