Casey Baseel of Rocket News 24 brings us excellent news: it’s no long necessary to mix your own green tea chocolate, then pour it in precisely measured lines over ruffled potato chips. It’s possible to buy whole bags of prepared green tea chocolate-covered ruffled potato chips, thus saving you from a good half hour of work every day.
Baseel taste-tested the results and said that they smell not just like green tea, but specifically like the Uji matcha variety of green tea grown in Kyoto. That’s good because we’re not crude savages who give no thought to keeping up appearances in respectable society. Baseel continues:
With the chocolate kept to moderate quantities, the first taste sensation is a salty one, like a normal potato chip. After that, though, there’s a mellowing sweetness, pleasant but in no way cloying. The layer of chocolate is just think enough to slightly soften the crispness but also provide some moisture.
