I confess, I am a matcha (Japanese green tea) sweets addict. And to any matcha-lover, Haagen-Dazs’ “Matcha Crumble” (available for 272 yen at most combinis) ice-cream bar is heaven on a stick. I don’t want to exaggerate, but this might just be the very best matcha flavored ice-cream to have ever reached the combinis.
Why? Because it packs three times the matcha than other ice-creams. Not just the ice-cream itself, but also the chocolate coating, and even the cookie crumbles on the coating are matcha flavored! As can be expected of Haagen-Dazs quality, it has a soft, creamy texture and a refined, bittersweet matcha taste. The same can be said for the crunchy coating, which shares the same depth in both flavor and texture. That’s quality and quantity in one package!
Matcha addict satisfaction degree: ★★★★★
Advised if you want to lose weight? ★☆☆☆☆ (The calories are not extremely high for an ice-cream, but be aware as you might get addicted!)
