These weirdly named confections are made in Japan, but I didn't have to go to Japantown to find them. They're available at Costco.
Actually, I don't know whether there is a good name (or a good reason) for mushroom-shaped chocolates. Dr. Hippie's Fungus Yums, anyone?

I guess CHOCOROOMS is better than MUSHOLATE.

Well, we have chocolate truffles, so why not other fungi?

They're called 'kinoko no yama' in Japanese ('mushroom mountain' or 'mountain of mushrooms' ) and are actually surprisingly delicious...sort of

They just look like 'shrooms, right? Or are they actually chocolate dipped dried mushrooms? 'Cause you never can be sure about these things...

They are nothing more exotic than a cookie dipped in milk chocolate. They are very tasty and also come in a koala bear shape and I'm very lucky to have a Mitsuwa supermarket in my 'hood to keep me in Mushobooms or was it Mushlates?
You think those are weird? Try some peanut squid crackers.
