Showcora Kurumiko x Fig Fromage 2 types 4 pieces
◆ Chocola Kurumiko
A luxurious and gentle taste born from the encounter between Kanagawa sweets “Kurumiko” and “Chocolat”. “Kurumiko” walnuts and ganache with homemade caramel sauce arranged to match chocolate are coated with white chocolate. I sandwiched it with a butter dough cookie. [Image 2
◆Chocolat Fig Fromage
A new product debuting in the 2023 Valentine season. We combined figs with rich parmesan cheese. When you eat a bite of ganache, the taste and aroma of rich cheese spreads. The sweetness of figs is condensed, and the popping texture of the seeds is a fun accent.

◆ History of the collaboration
Kamakura Beniya / VANILLA BEANS logo mark
“Kamakura Beniya,” which has its main store in Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and “VANILLABEANS,” which has its main store in Yokohama City. The exchange between the two companies began when they opened a shop on the same floor at the Yokohama Hammerhead commercial facility in the Yokohama Minato Mirai 21 area, which opened in October 2019. The collaboration product “Showcola Kurumiko”, which was first sold during the 2021 Valentine’s season, has been well received every year, and 2023 will be the third year. By leveraging the strengths of the taste of both companies to create “one sweet”, we will spread the harmony of “smile” and “deliciousness” through sweets from Kanagawa Prefecture to the whole country.
◆ About Kamakura Beniya Co., Ltd.
Representative product Kurumiko
In October 1954, the first generation of Japanese confectionery craftsmen and the second generation of Western confectionery craftsmen moved to the former site of Yasutoki Hojo’s Komachi residence (currently the location of the head office) at 12-4 Yukinoshita, Kamakura City, with the motto, “Continue to pursue deliciousness.” Kamakura Beniya began with the founding of a confectionery shop based on this philosophy.
Currently, in addition to various projects and product development, we are actively using SNS and implementing measures that emphasize communication with customers. We will continue to contribute to the creation of “smiles” and “happiness” as a “confectionery shop that values the feeling beyond “delicious” the most”.
About Chocolate Design Co., Ltd.
VANILLABEANS representative product Chocolat
Established in March 2000. Starting from a prefabricated space of only 2 tsubo, the brand “VANILLABEANS” is developed. With the motto “Make the world happy with chocolate”, we are creating a system that makes customers, producers, and cocoa-producing countries happy. At that time, there were still few online confectionery sales, and the “Vanilla Beans Rakuten Ichiba Store”, which was said to be a pioneer, won numerous awards, including the success of a project to establish a school in Ghana. We will continue to pursue a wide range of
possibilities for cacao.
