This year’s Valentine’s Day has ended, and White Day is coming soon (March 14th)! Have you heard of “White Day” before?
White Day is a day when a man who has received gifts on Valentine’s Day, pays back the girl he received the present from by giving white chocolate or some snacks to show his feeling of thankfulness. White Day was first celebrated in 1978 in Japan. It was started by the National Confectionery Industry Association as an “answer day” to Valentine’s Day, Now however, this custom has spread to some East Asian countries such as China, Taiwan and Korea.
In this article, I will introduce to you some desserts which are suitable to be used as a present on White Day.
“Zaku Zaku Blanc” Cream puff specialist shop CROQUANTCHOU ZAKUZAKU
The cream puff specialist shop, CROQUANTCHOU ZAKUZAKU have announced that they will release two new sweets items for Japan’s two romantic seasons: the dark chocolate clad Zaku Zaku Noir for Valentine’s Day and white chocolate Zaku Zaku Blanc for White Day. Zaku Zaku Blanc is the White Day dream, splashed with pure white chocolate. The white chocolate itself is sweetly rich and creamy and will dazzle your palate.
“Sacoche” Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu
The new White Day gift, “Sacoche” is a cute chocolate, shaped like a hand bag using the motifs of polka dot and button. Colorful macarons (4 flavors – vanilla, chocolate, caramel, pistachio raspberry) are included inside the case made with chocolate! The standard dessert of White Day called “White Day Millle-Feuille o Phrase” is also recommended.
“Ichigo no Truffle” Gin no Budo
The most popular White Day dessert of Gin no Budo “Ichigo (strawberry) no Truffle” was renewed. The product is a spring-limited product produced by Gin no Budo. The product is colored a strawberry pink and is known as one of the first photogenic desserts. The sweetness and sourness of this sweets item is superb!

“Berry White Chocolate Pancake” Sarabeth
