Chocolate Lovers Now Have a New Way to Enjoy Dessert!
A box of chocolates has always been a good gift, especially for chocolate lovers. Although delicious, it can sometimes seem unoriginal to give this for birthdays or holidays such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day – until now. Koo-ki Sushi has revolutionized chocolate desserts with something truly unique!
Koo-Ki Sushi crafts sushi-shaped chocolate pieces made of the finest chocolate, delectable flavorings, and crisp rice cookies instead of raw fish, vinegar, and rice. Each Koo-Ki Sushi piece is molded, filled, and shaped by hand; even the little “roe” gummi eggs are meticulously created one by one. These one-of-a-kind pieces come carefully arranged in an array of imported Japanese obento (lunch) boxes, washi paper boxes, and trays.
How Did Koo-Ki Sushi Originate?
|In 1995, Karen “Suedy” Sasaki and her sister Janice officially launched the Koo-Ki Sushi business after Karen came up with the idea to create sushi-shaped desserts one year earlier. After taking several classes, researching, and experimenting, the sisters finally created their own unique recipes & techniques that make Koo-Ki Sushi the success it is today. || |

They may look like real chopsticks, but these Choc Sticks are actually made of chocolate and inlaid with pieces of crème de menthe, mocha bean, or strawberry chocolate. Although they are perfect for swirling into a rich cup of coffee or hot cocoa, we found them so delicious that we ate them before the coffee finished brewing!

Suedy’s Koo-Ki Sushi also features traditional, hand-decorated Lucky Cats that aren’t made of wood, ivory, or porcelain, but creamy, solid Belgian Chocolate!
Tri Color Choco-Neko™, considered the symbol of good luck, is made of creamy white chocolate and elaborately hand decorated with touches of milk chocolate and edible gold luster.
"The packaging was so cute, i didn't want to eat it at first! I was also wondering whether it would taste plastic, but when I actually tried it, I was pleasantly surprised that it made for a tasty, satisfying treat."

These traditional, reusable Japanese boxes and serving tubs are the perfect quality gift! The Suedy’s Obento, for example, is a popular “sampler” size of Suedy’s Koo-Ki Suishi. It contains pieces such as Apricot Row (crisp rice cookie under rows of apricot flavored “gummi-eggs” wrapped in dark chocolate), Great White Sushi (creamy white “shrimp” with a smooth white almond filling atop green tea “wasabi” on a crisp rice cookie), and Fruit-O-Maki (fruit flavored pieces, caramel, and dark chocolate rolled inside a crispy rice cookie). It looks as good as it tastes!
