Meiji Meltykiss: Green Tea Chocolate Truffles

I think if I were to rank foods in order of how often I crave for them, the top of the list is likely to be dominated by hawker fare (dying to have Sungei Rd Laksa at the moment), savory foods and more recently, waffles. Admittedly not the biggest sweet tooth, chocolate wouldn’t even come close. In fact, it would probably be somewhere near the bottom of the list. Also if you were wondering, white chocolate doesn’t even qualify!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do take chocolate. However, if you would only pair if with something novel or interesting, then you’ll really capture my attention. For instance, I found the root beer chocolate cake at Wimbly Lu to be a simple yet very effective match. Other interesting pairings of chocolate I like are that with sea salt, orange, wine and even bacon (!!!)

A safe combination is often green tea with chocolate, which is one of my favorites because I am quite the matcha fan. Imagine my delight when I saw these Meiji Melty Kiss Green Tea Chocolate Truffles lying around in the fridge!

melty kissThere are two kinds of truffles in this box I have here – regular chocolate truffles (white wrapper) and green-tea filled chocolate truffles (green wrapper). As expected, for me, the regular chocolate truffle is nothing to rave about; the one with the pure green tea filling, however, was simply delightful! It was basically like a pure green tea cube with a thin coating of milk chocolate. The chocolate melts silky smooth into the green tea filling, which was rich in flavor and not overly-sweet.
