Sakura Matcha KitKat

Just purely out of curiosity, I picked up a box of green tea KitKat to try out. I love green tea (ryokucha, matcha, sencha, genmaicha, hojicha… or just tea in general) so I thought “hey, maybe it can be a good combo…”.

Ten in a box

I gotta hand it to their marketing team for the packaging and timing of this stuff. It’s spring and cherry blossoms are blooming left and right… and students are taking exams/finals/midterms and such. What a sweet way to cheer them on.

It even has ample space on the back for you to write your “ganbare!/ga yao!” message for someone.

Only 100 calories per pack! That is equivalent to one Pop Tart!

Okay enough of the marketing ploy. The most important part: Taste.  All I tasted was sweet… like white chocolate sweet. I didn’t get any green tea flavor (that I recognize… and definitely not a hint of matcha). The sakura essence must’ve done something to the flavor but it wasn’t bad. It just didn’t taste too much like green tea but more like… Cinnamon apple cheerios or similar cereal. Almost kinda disappointed… but then I think there’s none of this in the US and is still better than the regular KitKat here so it’s cool.

  1. Green chocolate, now THAT’S new (for me). I only know about the normal, dark and white variants, but green…

    Wonder if they’re planning on a wasabi-flavoured chocolate. XD

    Won’t be finding those at my country either… T_T

        1. They don’t. just a heads up. My brother’s a Japanese major in college, and got a hold of these. Green Tea, Wasabi, AND Soy Sauce flavors (he was going for all the extreme tastes… xP). The Green Tea was good, but sweet (Like Z said), the Wasabi was just weird, like my mouth did NOT know what to do with it. Soy Sauce wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, but still repulsive all the same (Salt usually goes good with chocolate, but not the Soy part…). Have yet to try their Raspberry and Passion Fruit one yet, which sounds like it might be good. Maybe…

            1. Gotta hand it to those people. I never saw those in my place. Haha, meat flavours chocaolate? That’ll be one heck of a taste.

    1. haha bb… clicked on your name to jump to your blog and it took me to one of those weird site and i thought you shut down your blog or something. I got scared… turns out you just made a typo xD

  2. “cries” D= i wish canada had some green tea kit kat. -_- all we have is some crappy dark chocolate and milk chocolate

    1. Some of those chinese candy stores in Canada do carry a little bit of those flavors… but those chinese candy stores exist in only big cities w/ a reasonable chinese population.

      I live in Vancouver, and I have seen those before in some chinese candy stores.
