I love green tea flavored foods. Ice cream, mochi, candy, etc. I recently discovered a green tea flavored chocolate that really stands out for me. Most of the time, green tea flavored chocolates I have eaten either use a white chocolate base, making it extremely sweet or is made into a truffle type form. When my friend went to Japan, she came back with all sorts of goodies, including these matcha chocolates.
One taste of these bite-sized chocolates and I was addicted. These are my favorite green tea flavored chocolates. They are the perfect blend. The chocolates are smooth and creamy tasting with a huge kick of concentrated green tea flavor in the middle. It's not as sweet as typical green tea chocolate and has more green tea flavor than the truffle type chocolates I've eaten.
To my delight, these chocolates are sold here as well! So far I have only found them in Mitsuwa though.
