Multicultural Children’s Chocolates


A friend of mine picked up a box of chocolates (usually on my no-no list) for my kids on her last trip to Korea. Since she’s an “Auntie” to my kids, she claims she gets to spoil them with things I don’t generally allow. She’s also the one that promises them secret treats behind my back and Lord knows what else. She’s the same one I fear which stories she will want to tell my kids about me when they get older, since we’ve known each other since we were 14. Yes, I am talking about you Auntie Lauren!

These chocolates are far cooler than your usual box of chocolates. They are multicultural Pucca chocolates! (I may be hopelessly behind the times as I didn’t know Pucca until I googled, but my kids knew all about her and were pretty excited by the chocolates).

Each chocolate has a Pucca character from a different country. American Pucca is dressed like a cowboy. There’s no Moroccan Pucca but we’ll forgive the oversight!
