Recently, something very exciting happened. I was having lunch at work and all my Japanese colleagues were discussing about the big version of Pie No Mi. Family Mart released a life size chocolate pastry version and everyone got excited and rushed to the convenience store to try the new version of their beloved snack that brings back childhood memories.

I am a big fan of the original version so I got all excited about this too! Unfortunately I couldn’t find it at my local convenience store because it was all sold out but luckily my colleague sent me some photos and some comments.
“The textured pie crust on the outside goes well with the delicious chocolate filling on the inside and is the perfect afternoon snack to have with milk or coffee or tea. I want everyone to go try it.”Woman, Japanese, 28
