Peko Chan, the mascot for classic snack Milky, is already a recognized star in the candy world. But this time around, manufacturer Fujiya has blown out the cute factor by collaborating with Sanrio's flagship character Kitty Chan (known to western readers as "Hello Kitty").
The two characters join forces to celebrate the traditional world of Japanese green tea. This Uji Matcha flavor combines the refined hot beverage with delicious taffy. Each piece of semi-hardened taffy slowly melts as the subtle mixture of sweet and earthy matcha tea brews on the tongue.
Classy and cute, it's too bad that these candies are available for a limited time only.
