I got this snack from my husband who went to the Japanese market, Marukai Market. The name of the snack is Matcha Peejoy Snack. The design is patterned after the stick filled snacks. Instead of filling it with chocolate, they filled it with matcha cream. I thought this would be another simple snack. They made it too small. I kinda like it because it was easy to eat. I could taste the light matcha cream inside the lightly baked stick.
This snack is not something I want to buy every time I get cravings. Comparing it with the other matcha stick snack available online. This brand did not stand out. I was hoping it was delicious. It was okay. No wow factor. The taste did not remain on my tongue. Unforgettable. I might include this on my top 100. Nothing too special that leaves a lasting mark.
The good thing about this snack since it is light and easy to carry. You can easily put this in your bag for a quick no-nonsense snack. It is good to fill you up for an hour or two. The next thing you know you need to find a heavier snack to partner it with. The cream really makes this snack worthy tasting. The texture and crunch are amazing.
I think the only people who would love this snack are children. It is not high in sodium or any other artificial flavoring. The sugar level is not too high (above 100 mg is too much). You would not let your children eat sodium rich foods. Kids would love eating this using melted chocolate. Since it is a great complement to matcha.
You can purchase this snack online or any Japanese market. Whenever I go to the Japanese market, they sometimes change their product offerings. I suggest to find it online first. This is a good light snack for kids and adults who needs matcha energy.
