Review: Meiji - Yan Yan

Meiji's Yan Yans are a Japanese biscuit and chocolate-dipping creme combo that comes in an individual tapered cup for easy snacking.

A 2-ounce cup goes for about 79 cents at Asian supermarkets in my area, they cost a bit more at the supermarket chains (like $1 or more).

Similar to Dunkaroos, Yan Yans are eaten by dipping the biscuit sticks into the chocolate creme. The creme comes in a small dipping compartment that looks like it takes up almost half the cup but is actually not too deep. There's usually enough chocolate to go around though, unless you coat every last inch of your biscuits with the stuff.

The biscuits themselves are just a little sweet and light, but a little oily. They go serve as a good transfer media for the chocolate-flavored dip.
The dip has a pretty good cocoa-based chocolate flavor and having to dip each biscuit stick takes at least some time to eat.

Depending on how you eat them, sometimes you may run out of chocolate creme and sometimes you may run out of biscuit sticks. Fortunately, they actually taste good alone but, like peanut butter and jelly, better together.
