A surprise from Japan

Just as I was about to leave for work this morning the post man brought me a package from Japan.
My friend Sonoko had sent me a package filled with all sorts of unusual food treats and souvenirs  Among the many items included were these two.
These chocolates are beautiful to look at and taste wonderful too.  We have eaten two -  can you guess which one the HD3QBEM ate?
  A red heart!   Delicious, apparently.   Mine was too!
And this little round item contained a surprise.   Sonoko made this herself. 
I pulled the red tag and lo and behold, a tape measure.   Thank you so much Sonoko.   This is so cute and I will certainly treasure your handiwork.
I am off for a walk around the mountain now and then hope to finish off my Assisi page for the NMMSAL.
Have a good evening.
