Japanese Garlic Producer Offers Chocolate-Covered Garlic

Love Garlic? Love Chocolate? Why Not Try Garlic Chocolate?

Lisa at TokyoMango tipped us off to the latest trend in Japanese candy. The Japanese have become known for their interesting flavor combos, and this time a company in Aomori, one of Japan's top garlic-producing regions, is combining garlic and chocolate.

Their product is called "black garlic chocolate" and it is a piece of fermented black garlic, covered with chocolate and sprinkled in cocoa powder. A garlic truffle if you will. The black garlic is said to have a sweet-and-sour, prune-like taste.

Although Japan is usually the first to create such offbeat flavors, this is not the first time I've heard of chocolate and garlic. The folks at the Gilroy Garlic Festival have been doing this for years. However this may be the first time I've heard of fermented prune-like garlic. You know I'd love to try a piece? How about you?

I'll have to try this, but I'd like to recommend a website where I get excellent Black Garlic, and USDA Certified Organic to boot. It's called Blue Fortune Farm and their Black Garlic page is http://www.bluefortunefarm.com/store/black_garlic.htmlGood stuff. Where can I get the chocolate covered variety?

my whole family makes fun of my aunt and uncle for using TONS of garlic in EVERYTHING. This would be a hilarious gag gift.

It would probably be delicious! I have a restaurant near me called Garlic Rose that is fantastic. My husband and I go there all the time! And their Garlic Ice Cream is just wonderful.
