All About Japan

A Whole New Kind of (Green!) Spread

Food & Drink Sweets Bread

Japanese company Verde has a wide variety of dispenser packs, featuring dual flavors like strawberry and butter, blueberry and butter, oligo honey (which contains organic fructo-oligosaccharide) and butter, chocolate and peanut, black and white (plain and white chocolate), and maple syrup and butter.

But now the company has just announced the next flavor duo to appear in the range: intense matcha and milk-flavored cream. The cream is actually a milky white chocolate, which, when combined with the strong matcha flavor, creates a creamy, bittersweet taste. Available in a four-pack, these will go on sale around the country from February 19 for ¥162.

Each dispenser pack features a special opening designed to create an attractive ribbon effect when squeezed, and the quality product uses powdered green tea sourced from Uji, Kyoto’s famous tea-growing region. While their range is designed to be used on bread, the sauce can also be used to add a hit of matcha flavor to desserts and snacks as well. Of course, you can be as adventurous as you like; if you think your taste buds can handle matcha ramen or matcha pasta, this is the easiest way to try it out!
