Afro Chocolate Melonpan

Afro chocolate melon pan

When I saw this picture of “the most creative cookie packaging ever” on Lost at E Minor, I had some questions. Luckily, my buddy Mike Maraldo happens to be an expert on the Japanese baked goods known as melonpan. Naturally, this imagery indicates that the melonpan is chocolate, and the distinguished gentleman on the packaging is the main character from The Drifting Afro Tanaka, a weekly comic (see below) started in 2010.  We are currently in the midst of scheming a way to import some of this delightfully diverse delicacy. Unfortunately, Hariken reports in from Tokyo that these were on shelves, but are long gone.
