Convenience Store Updates: 6/28/17
Uji Matcha Cream Daifuku / Lawson
Though I'm not a huge fan of matcha flavor, I have to admit that it has always been on a center stage of a sweets scene over a decade.
Today's featured item by Lawson is definitely the one all the matcha fans should give a try.
Even if you know a little about our culture, this kind of green, chewy sweets might be becoming familiar around you, maybe globally.
Yes, this is called "mochi", traditional form of Japanese sweets. But a popular convenience store chain like Lawson never forget to add a twist to their products.
With this particular item, they have infused the intense flavor of matcha, produced by Tsujiri, Kyoto-based super tea brand.
I guess, this is the most cost-effective way to touch authentic matcha sweets or flavor. Natural bitterness & sweetness comfortably goes around in your mouth...
Don't waste that ¥130 in your pocket on tasteless canned coffee & invest it in this extraordinary cultural piece!
Thanks for reading.
