Of course most people love chocolate and in Japan the women generally give the chocolates to the men, but for those who want to join in the Valentine fun but just can’t have the chocolate here is the answer.
It looks like a Chocolate roll and has the name ミニロール バター Mini butter roll taste, but if you look closely you will see it is actually a rolled up towel!

This is slightly off topic here but let me tell you about new one… a cake made of baby’s paper diapers.
I don’t know this is popular in any other countries.
