Enjoy Valentine’s Day With Glico Almond Chocolate

In Japan, Morozoff Ltd. introduced the holiday for the first time in 1936, when it ran an advertisement aimed at foreigners. Later, in 1953, it began promoting the giving of heart-shaped chocolates; other Japanese confectionery companies followed suit thereafter. In 1958, the Isetan department store ran a “Valentine sale”. Further campaigns during the 1960s popularized the custom.

The custom that only women give chocolates to men [on Valentine’s Day] may have originated from the translation error of a chocolate-company executive during the initial campaigns.
