Of chocolate and wasabi

One of my coworkers recently took a trip to Japan. She’s always been fascinated with Japanese life and culture, and even went there on her honeymoon.

As I, too, am fascinated in Japan, though my fascination extends more into the scholarly fields, she brought me back a memento. The memento is also something of a challenge:

She was (and is) most curious to see if I would eat it. I share her curiosity; it is still sitting on my desk.
