Matcha + White Chololate = Matcha KitKat

9 10 2008

Matcha products in Japan have been somewhat of an obsession for a while now, but who would ever think of eating green colored chocolate bars? Matcha KitKat would be an oddity to us, but in Japan it’s just one of the everyday products in the grocery shops, alongside things like soda with eel extract or tubed milk. The color of the bars is bright green and it comes from the matcha that is mixed in with white chocolate. Unfortunatly this was only a limited edition available in Japan… and it was not a health bar at all! Lots of sugar! I haven’t had the chance to get my hands on some, but I read that it tasted very sweet and too plain, but it had a nice green tea aroma to it. Oh well, at least we still have the matcha Pocky left.
