BLACK THUNDER is a popular chocolate bar series which stated sales in 1994 and has been on sale for over 20 years. The product development of this series’ newest bar which highlights the true flavor of matcha, was supervised by Biju Co. Ltd., famous for its Japanese confectionary series, “Kyoto Meika Otabe,” with a history of over 50 years.
“Kyoto BLACK THUNDER” retains the popular crunchiness of this chocolate bar series and to this has added not matcha flavoring but 2 different powdered green teas, that is powdered uji matcha and powdered “sencha” (green tea). It is therefore, a chocolate bar where you can enjoy the true flavor of matcha. By using powdered sencha the slightly bitter aftertaste of green tea has been softened, making it a chocolate bar that can be enjoyed by both young and old alike.
