A dandy green tea candy!

During my lunch breaks at work, I sometimes spend my time doing a little window shopping and browsing in the various shops nearby. On one such day, I spotted packages of candies infused with either tea or coffee. Naturally, I had to take a closer look at the tea flavoured candies. They are produced by a company called Fusion Gourmet. Each package came in a different flavour such as “Citrus Green Tea”, “Green Tea Latte”, and “Classic Iced Tea”. The packages indicated that the candies were infused with tea extract. 

Candied Green Tea Latte!

I purchased the “Green Tea Latte” to check try out and write about. The ingredients included:
  • Glucose Syrup (Tapioca) 
  • Cane Sugar 
  • Milk Powder 
  • Tea Extract 
  • Natural Green Tea Flavour 
  • Salt 
Each individually-wrapped candy looked like a precious stone in a lovely jade colour. They reminded me of Werther's Original candies. The texture was smooth and silky. They tasted creamy with a hint of green tea, like Matcha.  Not overly sweet. 

A drop of tea!

I’m not a big purchaser of candies as I'm more of a Junior Mints kinda girl!  However, I usually do keep a few of these types of drops in my purse when the need for something sugary hits me. These are perfect, and Fusion Gourmet looks like a great company to support. Do check out their website, they have other tasty goodies!
