One of the top chocolate shops in Tokyo, Ken’s Cafe Tokyo has collaborated with FamilyMart once again to create a series of limited-edition desserts.

Ken’s series of FamilyMart confectionery includes a classic eclair filled with chocolate cream (¥165) and a pudding made with chocolate and layered with fluffy mousse (¥230) for a silkier texture.

The chocolate desserts are now available at FamilyMart stores nationwide until stocks run out.
