Continuing from last week, the author is enthusiastic about "Don Quijote Shibuya". As usual, both right and left are foreigners, and I feel like I'm in a country I don't know anymore.
When I casually looked into the basket to see what these people were buying ... there was a matcha candy . The rumor that matcha-flavored sweets are popular as Japanese souvenirs is true!
Matcha sweets are displayed together in the store, so you can quickly dye your basket in matcha brown just by reaching up, down, left and right. Moreover, it is cheap. This is a loss if even Japanese people have to buy it!
However, with this amount, there may be one or two products made with a light feeling, such as "If you taste matcha, you can sell it." It's sad that such sweets cross the sea, so I decided to check it at the editorial department.
◆ "Must-by Matcha Confectionery TOP3" selected by matcha lovers
That's why I bought 10 types of gutsuri. Actually, there was still more, but I narrowed it down in consideration of my physical condition and wallet.
First of all, when I tried it, everything was delicious (that's right). Then, I wondered if I like matcha, so I convened a writer, Chabatake Shibui , who is relentlessly chasing matcha material on the sister site "En-eating". We asked them to judge the "Top 3 Matcha Confectionery to Buy". Please see below along with the comments.
3rd place: Yamazaki Nabisco "Oreo Chocolate Bar Mini Coarse Ground Matcha"
2nd place: Fujiya "Look Gyokuro Matcha"
1st place: Morinaga & Co. "Pakkuncho Dark Matcha"
Pakkuncho was brilliantly selected as No. 1. It was an image that I ate when I was a kid, but it seems that I have grown up to show an adult side before I knew it.
By the way, the author's recommendation, which is not enough to call himself a matcha lover, is "Matcha Tiramisu Chocolate". The standard "tiramisu chocolate" is just too tasty, but the matcha flavor is perfect when you want to change your mood once in a while.
Don Quijote is actively promoting services for foreign tourists visiting Japan, such as tax exemption and ATMs. If you see Don Quijote in a tourist spot, please take a look if you like matcha. Especially at this time of year, each company has a matcha flavor, so it's even more fulfilling!
