Not too long ago I posted a picture of some Green Tea Oreos that I had found in the paper. You can see the post here. I was thrilled that they made Oreos in such a neat flavor that seemed to be right up my alley. I contacted my friend, Mr. Google, to see what I could find and lo and behold I found something on Mr. Ebay that was a pretty close match to what the article pictured. After a little time with my other friend, Mr. Paypal, I had placed an order and my Japanese friend was going to be sending me some delightful and tasty concoctions.
Or so I thought. Oh they arrived in record time and even came with a sweet note and free tea bag of green tea but the actual products were a bit of a disappointment when it came to taste. Maybe I had built my taste buds up too much but the exotic treats were not anything that I would buy again even if they were available in the US for a fraction of the cost. The green tea Oreo sticks were probably the hugest disappointment. Perhaps the full on Oreo cookies would have offered more a flavor burst but the sticks were just ho hum—a bit of chocolate with an after taste of green tea….nothing to write home about. Probably the most disgusting thing was the general appearance of the Green Tea Kit Kat. Kit Kats are not supposed to be green….just saying. It just tasted waxy–not flavorful at all and definitely not chocolate which is how I believe all Kit Kats should be. I will save my money next time.
