When I caught the Friday tweet by @tastoriaqueens about the Green Tea filled “soft” Oreos she found at Family Market, I knew I had to check it out for myself.

She went on to tweet about more green tea sweets – Nestlé Crunch bars.

 

I am a big fan of American sweets getting the Japanese green tea treatment, as I think it’s brilliant and very tasty. I am a HUGE fan of green tea Kit Kats, which apparently Family Market carries from time to time.

On Saturday I headed south to Broadway to investigate this green tea candy and cookie action. I saw bags of both the Oreos and Crunch bars – score! Sue was kind enough to gift me half the bag of Oreos she had purchased during the week (“They’re addictive! Take them off my hands!”) and I bought the bag of Nestlé crunch bars; those are sitting comfortably in my freezer, but the Oreos are gone, gone, gone. These soft Oreos are pretty amazing little chocolate treats, and I can see how one could eat them one after the other in quick succession.

The Oreos and Nestlé Crunch bars are all individually wrapped.
