You can get roasted green tea and matcha sweets at a convenience store?! Check out 7- Eleven’s “Wa sweets fair”!
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).
Molten core Uji Matcha Tiramisu
Price：￥230（price without tax）
This will be the first matcha tiramisu ever released by Seven Eleven. This uses Italian mascarpone for a rich, smooth tasting tiramisu that melts in the mouth, and a rich uji matcha for the mousse.

Rice cake with a molten strawberry and almond core
Price: ￥100（price without tax）
This is a western-style daifuku mochi; a rice cake filled with melt-in-the-mouth almond jelly. This is a fusion of almond jelly, which is popular in western confectionary, and a sweet and sour strawberry sauce. This is encased in lightly sweetened cream and then wrapped by a soft mochi rice cake.
Dorayaki pancake filled with soft choco mint cream
Price: ￥150（price without tax）
Layer by layer, dorayaki pancake batter is fried on a copper plate, creating a springy texture. The cocoa-flavoured dorayaki skin embraces a large filling of fresh flavoured chocolate mint cream.
Take some time out of your day to enjoy the traditional flavours of Japan through Seven Eleven’s diverse range of sweets.
