Those of you who know me well will know that I blog in my free time, away from work. I am not a full-time blogger and although my blog is now more than 8 years old, whatever that’s been written in it was done as a “hobby” and passion. Look, after 8 years, it’s hard to sustain or continue blogging if there’s no love or passion in it, right?
I blog as a form of release: be it from stress or just the need to express myself and of course, to share with you an experience, whether it’s a meal somewhere or a staycation somewhere. To fuel my creativity (and sometimes to keep away the snoozes), very often I’d have some snacks nearby. Usually it’s a plate of fruits, last month it was the remnants of our Chinese New Year goodies and of late, guess what – I’ve discovered a new addiction.
If you haven’t heard of it yet, well, let me tell you the secret – it’s the New Limited Time Flavor Matcha CaramelCrisp from Garrett Popcorn! “Matcha” is of course green tea but it isn’t just any green tea that’s used in Garrett Popcorn’s latest flavor. What is used is the harada matcha sourced from the Shizuoko prefecture, a well-known tea-growing area in Japan. Through careful processes, high quality “Aki Matcha” which is powdered green tea is used for its very refreshing matcha flavor.
Upon chewing it, I like how the Matcha CaramelCrisp Popcorn exudes a fresh green tea aroma, with just the right flavor distinction without overpowering the original tastes of CaramelCrisp. The lovely greenish hue certainly gives those puffy crunchy popcorn a unique appearance. Indeed, the harada matcha used is the perfect choice and best match for CaramelCrisp.
I’ve become so addicted to the Matcha CaramelCrisp from Chicago, USA that I now always have to have my 1Gallon Tin around wherever I am. It has now become an almost permanent companion for me – the tin sits next to me at my workstation at home (it’s really useful and delicious whenever I have to work late into the night!).
My friends and I have also discovered that the Matcha CaramelCrisp is an excellent “focus booster” whenever we are playing some challenging game together! There must be something extremely “relaxing” in the harada matcha that helps steady our hands whenever we play Jengga!
Watch where the hand is going!
At other times, whenever I’m chilling out at home, the tin of Matcha CaramelCrisp is never far from reach. It’s a favourite with my family whenever it’s “Home Movie Night” with the brood.
Only limited batches of Matcha CaramelCrisp are made each day to maintain its freshness. It’s available in all their bag sizes, with prices ranging from RM17 for its Small Signature Bag as well as in their Tins starting at RM40 for the Quart Tin.
