Auntie Anne’s, the famed soft pretzel company, might finally get a step up on Wetzel’s Pretzels with their newest creation, the Matcha Green Tea Cheescake Pretzel. Bit of a mouthful, but surely this new delectable treat is too.
Although this pretzel is only coming out in Japan, the steady rise of matcha as a staple in many foods seems to be a trend that’s not going away any time soon, so a quick trip over the Pacific may be in store for these new additions to Auntie Anne’s family.
These new delights are stuffed with equal parts matcha cream and cheesecake cream, then rolled in crushed almonds to round out the flavor. The pretzel rolls will be sold for 420 yen (or $3.75). Unfortunately, this promotion only lasts until May 31st before it is removed from menus.
