American chains Starbucks and Krispy Kreme took a smooth train while entering the Japanase market, people were already excited for them because coffee and donuts had already existed for a long time. Unfortunately, not pretzels. The soft pretzel still remains a mystery for the japanese snack circuit, and many people have probably not even heard about it.

Nevertheless, America’s popular pretzel chain Auntie Anne’s wants the Japanese folks to believe in this interesting snack by fitting their constant cycle of seasonal flavor - Matcha. Recent hits have included strawberry, maple and milk cream-flavor, and now it is their first time getting on the matcha green tea sweets trend.

The Auntie Anne’s Matcha cheesecake pretzel roll

Inside Auntie Anne’s pretzel dough, the top layer is covered up with delicious Kyoto’s high-class Matcha from ITO, with a stratum of cream cheese cake underneath, and with a final touch of crushed almonds dusting all over the top.

If you want more Matcha, you may also combo it with Frozen drink Uji Matcha or Uji Matcha Latte.

The Matcha cheesecake pretzel roll sells for a limited time, from March 24th to May 31st. If you live in the area, don’t forget it to grab one of them.
