When I was at World Market over the weekend, I discovered at the back of the store a display that contained several green tea treats. They had green tea Kit Kat candy bars, which I've tried before and enjoyed; a green tea jellied-looking treat, which made nervous; and these "Pocky" brand treats. The whole box is 340 calories and is considered a single serving, but that's nuts. I've been eating a few at a time. I'm also thinking these would be cute accents for something, but what? Matcha ice cream?
I like matcha okay but just okay, and to my surprise, I absolutely loved these biscuit sticks! The matcha flavor is there, yes, but it's light and not bitter, quite complementary to the crunch of the biscuit sticks. I actually considered buying an extra box of these for the giveaway this month, but the box said to keep these out of the sun, so mailing such a package from Georgia in August would probably not be a good idea. Have any of you tried these treats? Count me a fan!
