You can get roasted green tea and matcha sweets at a convenience store?! Check out 7- Eleven’s “Wa sweets fair”!

05.June.2018 | FOOD

As Japan celebrates “Wagashi Day” on Saturday 16th June, 20,385 7-Eleven convenience stores will be holding a sweets fair from 5th June called “Wa Sweets Fair”. (It is currently the end of May 2018)

At this fair, there will be a range of six sweets that fuse Japanese ingredients such as black syrup, uji matcha and roasted houjicha green tea with western ideas. Enjoy the slightly fluffy texture of the popular choux pastry series “moko” filled with a fragrant black syrup and roasted soybean flour cream. This is called “Kuromitsu kinako moko”. There is also the melty-centred rice cake “Mochitoro” series where almond jelly-flavoured cream and strawberry sauce are combined to make a new flavour called “Mochi toro ichigo annin” (rice cake with a molten strawberry and almond core).
