Yup. Finally. FINALLY!!! My wishes have been granted! I finally get to sample the iconic foods of 2 of my favourite Animes.
So, as stated in the title, I finally went down to the bakery located at Holland Village and managed to get my hands on a number of Chocolate Cornets and Melon-Pans.
Each of these breads made their appearance in Lucky Star and Shakugan no Shana respectively.
I can’t really express my excitement. It is really great to get replicas of any kind as they allow you to experience what the Anime character experiences and allows one to get closer to that said character. Now, I get to eat what 2 of my favourite heroines eat! Seriously, the Chocolate Cornet and Melon-Pan are literally icons of the series and characters themselves.
The Chocolate Cornet scene must be the most famous scene from Lucky Star. Check out the figure that I got with the April Comptiq magazine:
But that’s another review for another time.
Here are some more pictures I took:
So, the Melon-pan was just a normal bread with a crispy exterior and I didn’t take many pics of me eating it and it was pretty good, though a little bland at the same time. This however, is good as true Melon-Pan are not Melon flavored.
Ah, domo, Shana. Perhaps I’ll try that next time. (^.^;)
However, here is my first bite into a Chocolate Cornet:
OMGWTFBBQ!!! That thing is DELICIOUS!!! Seriously! The cream, which I expected to be your regular bread-shop-not-so-sweet-run-of-the-mill-cream, was actually exceedingly creamy (well, duh), smooth and sweet! Honestly, it was really good. Amazing stuff.
And, for those who want to know if the chocolate does spill out, IT DOES. Let’s just leave it at that.
Also, it may interest you to know that the breads were actually made by a Japanese baker. Interesting! Wonder if he watched the Animes… (^.^)
Aw, Shana, that’s too harsh. It was pretty good! And no, there wasn’t any artificial flavoring added.
Anyways, here’s the location of the bread shop for those of you who want to sample some delicious Anime related goodies:

So, the question of the day is:
WHICH IS THE HEAD OF A CHOCOLATE CORNET??? I NEED TO KNOW!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
It’s driving me nuts!
Er, as for the Dakimakura, the review is delayed as I still haven’t gotten a hold of the pillow yet…
