Japanese chocolates

I saw these at Jasmart yesterday and had to try them. The matcha one was really strong and rich, tasted exactly like matcha with a slight bitter finish. The strawberry was great and had a very natural strawberry flavor. The photos don’t really capture the deep colors; the green should be more of a deep olive and the pink darker.

I also picked up some chestnut and marbled Pocky.

    well, actually they have two typs of those: they have proper green Kitkats, and standard Kitkats with green matcha filling. They’re so good!
    Actually, if you’re into matcha recipes, check out my blog- I just posted a green tea cake recipe :)
