"Shimichoco? What's the hell that?" said I first. On the planning, we'll pick up items to feature. Naturally, on the list, there are some I have never heard. "Shimichoco-corn" is one of them.

The unknown confectionery is said to be produced by Ginbisu established in Tokyo. Sorry, I have not heard you. They seem to have a long history in their own way, built in 1930. I know it is not your concern, but their name sounds like Hingis (a Swiss professional tennis player), doesn't it?




They say the "Shimichoco-corn" was out in 2003 November. Umm... I cannot find it in my memories.

It doesn't mean that I don't remember those days at all. I'd belonged to Kyoto Foreign Language University and cohabited with a girl in Kyoto, and had worked in a convenience store Lawson. It also doesn't mean I was so far away from confectionery, because I used to keep the confectionery corner clean on my job, and often bought sweets for my beloved in Kyoto. However, it is pretty difficult to find the "Shimichoco-corn" in my memories.

Shimi means impregnating in Japanese, it's said. They do, not paint chocolate on snacks, namely, impregnate snacks with chocolate. Then, they say they can make the snacks unique felt on tongue. Moreover, that keeps your hands clean though holding chocolate snacks.

Umm... I kind of want to try now. Where can it be found around me, but? I'll look for as long as I keep it in my memory.



I can't help remembering this song that had played many times
repeatedly in that convenience store during 2003 November...
