The International festival of chocolate that was started in France in Salon Du Chocolat is currently going on in Shinjuku, Tokyo and a new high-end chocolate collaboration with NARUTO was brought to Japanese audiences for the first time since its debut in 2013. The sweet confection features popular characters from the series and Japanese flavoring by Tokyo Chocolate, a Japanese chocolatier that was named one of the 20 Best Chocolatiers in the world.
The NARUTO collaboration chocolate was first introduced at Paris Salon Du Chocolat in 2013 since the anime is also very popular in France. The flavors are inspired by images of Tokyo as seen from around the world and Naruto is Yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit, Sasuke is sesame, Sakura is naturally a sakura (cherry blossom) and Kakashi is Macha (green tea). The box sells for 1,575 yen for a box of 8 chocolates. Would Senpai notice you with these luxury chocolates? Unfortunately, it is already sold out at the event in Shinjuku. It will be available at later event dates throughout Japan.
Do you feel like watching the Valentine episode of Shippuden? Episode 96 has a bonus episode of Hinata making chocolate for Naruto if you have not seen it already.
