Do you know how many products contain Matcha in Japan? We have Matcha snacks, desserts and even beauty products such as cleansing gel, masks and lip balms! This is probably because Matcha is both flavourful and provides plenty of health benefits.
But we’re here for the food! Matcha snacks are highly popular items to shop for souvenirs, such as KitKat, Pocky, and many more. Which can be found in Convenience stores, supermarkets, drugstores and souvenir stores in Japan. Here’s our top 7 favourite Matcha snacks.
Each container comes with eight cookies
The Cigare cookies are known for their rich buttery taste and crispy yet just moist enough texture. In addition to the subtle Matcha taste on the outside, you will love the matcha-chocolate fillings!

Koikeya boasts that it has the texture of freshly fried tempura as the chips are dusted with a mixture of salt and powdered green tea. But what’s so special about them is that Koikeya suggests that to add the chips into a bowl of Ochazuke.
Ochazuke is one of Japan’s simplest yet most satisfying comfort foods, consisting of a bowl of white rice with green tea poured over it, plus a few seasonings like small strips of nori (seaweed).
