This product is called “Takenoko-no-sato” that means “Bamboo shoots village”. As you can see from the package, they are bamboo shoot shaped chocolate snack.
This is one of the most famous chocolate snacks in Japan from a manufacturer Meiji. There are two major forces, this bamboo shoot shaped chocolate snack “Takenoko-no-sato” and “Kinoko-no-yama” which is mushroom shaped chocolate snack.
The manufacturer Meiji sells some different flavors of this product. This time they feature green tea called “matcha”.
Good as usual.
I like the texture of the combination of the chocolate and cookie.
I was able to enjoy the little bitter flavor of green tea “matcha”. The “matcha” flavor was mild, not so strong.
