Bone Marrow Chocolate Cream
I received this submission from Japan a couple of years ago and didn’t know quite what to make out of it. Some people are quite fond of bone-marrow (usually served within a bone at restaurants), but I was not aware that it is used as an ingredient in chocolate creams of all things…

I Googled “bone marrow ideal fat food for children and invalids” and it looks like this phrase was used in vintage medical memorabilia – as in this photo on Flickr. I guess some Japanese confectioners took the phrase verbatim from these old medicines and are using it as a marketing tool for chocolates!
