Japanese Green Tea Cookies & 9 other Matcha Snacks to Die For!

Most people from outside of Asia don’t think of green tea as a flavor
they want in a snack. But those of you who have basked in the delight of
creamy, sweet, slightly bitter green tea desserts have probably already
been converted to the green side of the snack universe. There are many
kinds of green tea snacks: from chocolate to cookies to ice cream and
traditional Japanese wagashi sweets.

The legendary green tea Kit-Kat

Standing proud on top of the stack of green tea flavored snacks is the
mighty Green Tea Kit-Kat. The original Kit-Kat is an undeniably American
candy, but it became popular in the Japanese market, perhaps in part
due to its name which sounds like “Kitto Katsu” or “you’ll definitely
win!” in Japanese. The Green Tea Kit-Kat redefines the very essence of
Kit-Kat by replacing the chocolate envelope around the crunchy biscuit
with a layer of green tea coating. Now the Japanese Green Tea Kit-Kats
are a highly desirable item being specially imported to be sold on the
American market. They are surprisingly sweet and creamy, and one can see
why they have “won” the hearts of Japanese and foreigners alike. There
are also Uji Matcha Kit Kat’s, which have a slightly stronger and
bitterer taste than the original Green Tea Kit-Kat’s.

The infamous Green Tea Collon…

Next we have the suspiciously named “Collon” cookies. While not a very
appetizing name, if you can get over the unsavory implications of bodily
functions, the cookies are actually quite tasty. They are light and
crispy and filled with green tea cream. The bite-sized shapes are
perfect for popping into your mouth without distracting you from your
latest anime episode.
