What I didn’t buy… but that’s not because they didn’t try hard.
Even outside shops, they display the boxes of choko. As I explained there (click) Valentine=Buy-Chocolate. That’s not the romantic date day. There is one, on Xmas. So all the effort is on chocolates and sweets.
Let’s start the party with a bubbly drink : Chocolate Sparkling. A seasonal junk. I tried it another year. The first one taste delicious, the next one… disgustingly sweet and artificial. Hey, it’s soda.
I like this year’s Alice bottle. kucha kucha ! Photo only !)
All supermarkets, shopping streets, shopping centers and department stores have big “Valentine” corners this month. What you see is “tiny”, only one small local supermarket. In city center, it’s quite similar… but 100 times bigger. I’m sure the excess of choice makes them lose so many sales to people that can’t decide which they want.
