Coffee Affair with Matcha CaramelCrisp Popcorn

Coffee has been part and parcel of my life. For those who can't live without coffee, high five! I guess that's why you are here, all ready to indulge in a coffee affair with me and curious about the little surprise added into my luxurious brew.

They say coffee is a warm delicious drug that makes everything feels better. Well, I am not sure how true is that, but one thing I am certain is that coffee definitely makes Garrett Popcorn tastes better. Wait...or should it be the other way around? 

Green Garrett Popcorn? Nope, it is neither seaweed nor wasabi flavor. Garrett Popcorn, the renowned popcorn label from Chicago, USA has recently added an interesting twist to its hugely popular flavour, CaramelCrisp, by infusing the refreshing flavour of Green Tea into it, hence creating a wholesome new limited time flavour: Matcha CaramelCrisp, coated evenly with golden green hue.

If you have tried Garrett Popcorn in other flavours such as CheeseCorn, Macadamia CaramelCrisp and Almond CaramelCrisp, I am sure that you know Garrett has never compromised in terms of quality. Similarly, the new green tea flavour is nothing artificial but is deliciously crafted using the high quality harada matcha from Shizuoko prefecture, Japan.

Some who have been to Japan may know that Shizuoka is an area famous for green tea plantations, hence the "Aki Matcha" (green powdered tea) or "Hiki Cha" there has fresh and strong green tea aroma, taste, mouthfeel and color.

In fact, the Matcha CaramelCrisp flavour has been well-received by the Japanese. It balances out the sweetness of the original CaramelCrisp flavor without overpowering it. 

What's more interesting about it is that, I realize it goes along very well with my cuppa, be it a dark bitter coffee or a foamy milk coffee. When both the aroma of coffee and green tea meet, it exudes a sweeter and less acidic flavour on the nose.

I even try soaking the popcorn into the freshly-brewed coffee for a couple of seconds to absorb the bitter concoction. To my surprise, the synchronization of flavours works! Smooth, sweet and bitter, all come at once; Definitely a warm comforting treat for both young and old.

Good things are meant to be shared, especially with the loved ones. Munching on the crispy popcorn while we keep our conversations going, I seriously didn't realize I have finished a large portion of the popcorn in my 1Gallon Tin!

Be warned: Once hooked, it is difficult to resist those green tea caramel goodness, so eat at your own risk! 

Whenever you are at home or in the office, a simple cup of coffee and a bag full of 
Garrett Popcorn's Matcha CaramelCrisp can be an indulgent midday treat to reward yourself or
perfect as a family snack during the evening TV hours.

Let's enjoy our #GarrettTogether moments with family and friends! 
(But please don't fight for the whole 1Gallon Tins with me!)
