You know those little bite-sized Dars chocolates that are sold at practically every convenience store and supermarket in the country? Well, they now have some much fancier counterparts, sold at a stylish boutique in Omotesando Hills. Not just any Dars, these are Dars Chocolat (no "e," because French spelling is so much posher), and they're actually very tasty.

The Dars Chocolat boutique will sell 12 unique flavors of chocolates, made with cacao sourced from 12 different countries around the world. There’s matcha azuki from Mexico, tomato and basil from Madagascar, yuzu and milk from Ecuador, passionfruit from Ghana, and espresso from Tanzania, just to name a few.Prices range from ¥800 to ¥1,500 for a box of 12. Unfortunately, not all of them are available now, with some flavors going on sale January 9 or February 13 (yep, just in time for Valentine’s Day), so to really choose a favorite will require multiple visits. You’ve been forewarned.

In addition to the chocolates, there are also three types of baked goods using the same Dars cacao. Madeleines and financiers come as a set of three (one white, one milk and one dark chocolate) for ¥800. Sable cookies are also priced at ¥800, and you can choose between white and dark chocolate.
