When I am 8,000 miles away in Baltimore, I will miss this snack sorely.  This is called monaka.  Imagine this thing is about the size of a large-ish envelope and about an inch and a half thick.  A big, hollow, egg-cartoney, wafer completely filled with ice cream, and running the length of the thing at its core is a big sheet of chocolate.  Oh damn it’s good.  Traditional Japanese monaka is usually just the wafer with some kind of jam filling, like red bean or sesame seed, but this “Jumbo Choco Monaka” is right up my alley.

The website is pretty funny too look at too.

    Matt, this seems pretty similar to a choco taco
