Atom Chocolate


Today is Astro Boy’s birthday! According to the manga, he was born on this day in a lab in the Takadanobaba area (2 stations from where I live). Pictured here is an Astro Boy Smarties-like (for those who don’t have the pleasure of having Smarties in their country – it could be a Canada-only thing – they’re a bit like chocolate M&Ms) chocolate that I picked up the other day called Atom (Astro Boy’s name in Japan) Marble Chocolate. The reason Astro Boy seems a bit blurry is because with the wrapper on, you could move it around and give the impression of movement.
