Lotte Cupcho Doraemon Chocolate Covered Corn Puffs: Cupcho are snacks you can find in konbini (convenient store) in Japan that are accurately named for their plastic cup packaging featuring a popular cartoon character - there seem to be Doraemon and Rilakkuma versions.

Peter Beier Merry Christmas chocolate covered almonds: A beautiful tin from Denmark containing almonds covered in white chocolate and coated with a vivid red powder of freeze dried cherries and cinnamon.
