It’s been a while!
So a new shopping centre popped up in my local area last year and I was ecstatic that a Daiso store was going to open up there!
At last, I finally got to to visit the store and boy did I find lots of green tea goodies! I selected a couple of interesting matcha snacks…
1. Furuta Everyone Cookies
The cookies come individually packaged. You get a whiff of green tea once you take the cookie out of its packet and there’s a subtle matcha taste. Other than that, it tastes like a chocolate chip cookie.
2. DARS Uji Matcha Chocolate
Haven’t been to a Daiso store in a while and am a little heartbroken that they no longer go by the “EVERYTHING $2.80”. This chocolate was $3.80… yikes.
It’s a dark chocolate… very rich chocolate (no pun intended) with a matcha centre.
I’m a big fan of the dark chocolate taste and I was also pleased that the chocolate came as individual pieces like they do with some Lindt chocolates.
3. Meiji Hello Panda – Matcha Green Tea Cream Filling
Growing up, Hello Panda was the go to snack and I fondly remember my school canteen selling the chocolate and strawberry cream filling flavours. It was the closest thing to junk food the canteen sold once they removed ice cream and chips from the shelves. So, bonus points for nostalgia.The green tea cream filling tastes a lot like the green tea kit kat.The matcha taste is distinct which I love.
4. Meito Condensed Milk & Green Tea Candy
I’m not a big fan of hard candy but I was curious what this would taste like. It has a very matcha taste and there’s literally condensed milk inside. I like to chew on my candy and I found the shell to be quite thin, so less sucking time. I thought it was an ok candy.
Well, that’s it for my Daiso… haul (?). Until next time!
