'tis the season for my favorite choco

Rummy chocolate is one of those "kisetsu gentei" that comes and goes with the seasons, and when it's gone after winter is over, man, oh man, do I crave it.

It's rich milk chocolate with sultanas and not just a hint of rum--we're talking MAJOR-impact alcohol. I always give this as gifts every year overseas, and one of my friends in Florida ate a whole box and got a bit tipsy one year (yes, you know who you are!).

I don't have much alcohol tolerance, and I'm breastfeeding to boot, so I just eat a teeny-tiny bit at any one sitting (OK, almost every night).

Mmmmmm, this is winter at its finest. This, and hot nikuman.

Fuji Mama, I'll trade you a piece of your fruit cake for a box of Rummy!

Reeni, you're so right--it is divine! Next time you come to Japan you'll have to try it! :)
