This miracle chocolate is finally available in Japan!
Chocolate is something we need in life. It’s good for the brain, it helps relieve stress, boosts concentration, and it just tastes so good that we can’t help but want more. A lot more. But most of the chocolate we can find in our beloved convinis are also full of artificial sugar, preservatives, colorants, milk and other ingredients that, to say the least, make us feel pressured to hit the gym as soon as we’ve had those few this-will-be-my-last-one-I-promise pieces.
But with Pana Chocolate finally opening its first store in Japan in central Ginza this spring, the guilt has just become history.
Originally from Melbourne, Pana Chocolate is a smooth, rich and silky chocolate with a number of mouth-watering flavors that brings something a little unexpected: it’s completely organic, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free and soy-free.
It is also full of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and contains no preservatives. Yes, you read that right, it’s your ultimate guilt-free afternoon pleasure; a miraculous invention we can’t be more grateful for.
Pana Chocolate also supports fair trade and it’s eco-friendly all the way from the chocolate melting to the packing. To add to that, the chocolate is handcrafted combining ingredients from all over the world: cacao pod from Bolivia, coconuts from the Philippines, cacao butter from Beru, agave from Mexico and coconut nectar from Indonesia.
Located in Ginza’s Kirarito shopping mall, Japan’s first Pana Chocolate store offers Melbourne’s signature flavors, including Sour Cherry and Vanilla, Mint, Nuts, Fig And Wild Orange, and more.
Mint, one of the brand’s most popular flavors, is made of 60 percent raw cacao with pure essential peppermint oil. It contains nothing else but cacao butter, cacao powder, dark agave nectar, coconut oil, carob, Ceylon cinnamon, peppermint essential oil and Icelandic sea salt. You get the point. Pana Chocolate recommends it for after dinner, breakfast and lunch, as an afternoon snack and any other time during the day.
Perfect for a gift (for yourself, mostly), Pana Chocolate’s products will make you enjoy a multitude of sensations: cacao melting in your mouth, bursts of citrus or herb, natural sweetness and a taste of coconut…all in one. It’s really that good — for your body, your mind, and the earth. The only downside is that it’s not that great for your wallet — a pack of bars costs a bit over ¥1,000, but if you think of all the money you spend at the gym after eating regular chocolate, it’s not that bad.
And you won’t feel bad, we promise!
