Valentine’s Day Chocolate Ramen! “What The Friday” Celebrates With Bacon Roses And “Love Sausage” Too!

Celebrate This Valentine’s Day With Chocolate – And Ramen!

It’s that time again: romance is in the air, and it’s time to plan that special gift that says “I LOVE YOU!” So, with that in mind, here’s an idea: what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with chocolate…in ramen noodles!

The terrific Reporters at have the story of a ramen restaurant chain in Japan that has a tasty way to say “I love you – and ramen – and chocolate!”

The ramen chain Korakuen will be bringing back their popular Chocolate Ramen, along with a new variety of White Chocolate Ramen, to celebrate this Valentine’s Day season.

As SoraNews24 reports, while this isn’t a new idea, the presentation is!

“Though Korakuen isn’t the first to sell either chocolate or white chocolate-flavored ramen, previous renditions we’ve tried have either been tsukemen style, in which you dip the noodles into the chocolate broth, or have used chocolate as a topping, rather than incorporating it into the broth.”

So this is, in fact, white chocolate soup!

These delicious “bowls of chocolate love” sell for 640 yen (US$5.87) each, and the restaurant plans to keep them on the menu until March 11.

Here’s the entire story on SoraNews24:

There are so many tasty ways to share the love this Valentine’s season:

Yes, you can’t go wrong with bacon roses – and they aren’t that hard to make!

Here’s the recipe!

Let’s not forget that many big companies also sell fun Valentines-themed food, like these “love sausages” from Marks & Spencer:

  1. Oh no! I keep thinking the most bizarre food invention has been created, then I look at your site and find a new one 😂 It doesn’t have the savoury flavour as well, does it? I can imagine chocolate and noodles are good together, but not sure about chocolate in a thin liquid…

  4. Chocolate ramon – hmm. I think I’ll stick with chocolate fondue.
    But would I try it – sure!
    Arguably you could layer chocolate with tarmac and it would be a hit.

    More fun stuff John.
    Thanks for the visit.


  5. I remember being impressed by those bacon roses before, John. White chocolate soup is not that appealing to me.

  9. I remember those bacon roses, it was one of the rare oddity finds here I’d actually like!
    Shouldn’t be surprised by chocolate ramen. It’s like their alternative to the UK’s chocolate rice pop cereal 😂

  12. Chocolate and ramen is not for me, John. But I am totally on board with the bacon roses!
    As for M&S, I think that company is being deliberately ‘cheeky’. A ‘love sausage’ can mean something very different over here! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
