Bourbon 'Petit' series - mini White & Matcha chocolate biscuits

Posted by Linda on 01. 2013 0 comments
Since I have been so slow with updates lately I decided to post 2 snack reviews today again to make up for the lack of recent updates
Today I will be reviewing 2 more snacks from Bourbon's popular 'Petit' series; mini white chocolate and matcha chocolate biscuits/cookies, they're virtually the same as the mini milk chocolate biscuits I reviewed last time, only with different types of choc fillings.

I will review the mini white chocolate biscuits first:

like I mentioned before, these white choc biscuits are virtually the same as the milk choc ones, these biscuits also have the same lovely soft and melty texture as the milk choc ones...and just like the milk choc biscuits, the white choc filling in these biscuits were also rather basic and nothing special in comparison to the soft biscuits.
However overall, these white choc biscuits were still really yummy, the soft and melty biscuits were still the star of the show, and although the white choc filling was plain and ordinary, it was still sweet without being overpowering. And again, the white choc filling was complementary to the soft biscuits.
Like many of the other yummy snacks in Bourbon's 'Petit' series, these white choc biscuits were very well executed.

My rating (overall):

Now let's move on to the petit matcha (Japanese powder green tea) chocolate biscuits...

once again, the texture of these mini biscuits were delightfully soft and melty, and matcha chocolate is more special compared to just plain basic milk and white choc. But although I was able to taste the bitter flavour of matcha in the green choc filling, I feel that the matcha flavor could've been a little stronger, the makers at Bourbon could've infused a bit more matcha powder into the chocolate. For me personally, the matcha flavour was just not strong enough for my taste, therefore the balance between the bitterness of the matcha and the sweetness of the chocolate was not consistent, at least to me, so that was a little disappointing for me.
However overall, these matcha biscuits were still oishii (yummy), they just needed a little more matcha flavour in the choc filling, that's all.

My rating (overall):

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
