D-Plus Chocolate Pastry Roll

Taste test: This round roll had a light beige color on the sides and a darker beige on top, with 10 thin chocolate stripes spanning the top. At almost 4 inches in diameter and more than 2 inches thick, it was pretty big.

I bit in to find that the chocolate stripes went all the way through the cake, but they were still quite thin and didn't bring a whole lot of chocolate to the taste, just a hint. The cake was dense with a bread-like feel, but still quite soft. The taste was pretty good, similar to the Hokkaido Cream version, but the small amount of chocolate did alter the flavor noticeably.
