No more PB&J for me!

Good morning everyone,

If you've got a bunch of soaking wet clothes at home like me you can take heart that the forecast has changed and we are no longer expecting rain today. It's still going to be a bit cool today and tomorrow with highs of 21C and 23C before jumping up to 26C or 27C for Friday and the weekend. All week is going to be a mix of sun and clouds, so it's looking like we'll have a chance to dry out.

Say goodbye to peanut butter and jam(PB&J) because now you can have matcha spread on your toast for breakfast!


While Japan is known for its traditional Japanese breakfast, consisting of rice, miso soup, fish and a number of additional extras, hectic lifestyles and busy working weeks mean many people make do with just a slice or two of thick toast in the mornings. And when you don’t have time to get out a knife and spread your topping on your bread, you can use a handy dispenser pack to pour on some flavour before finishing your breakfast and rushing out the door.

Japanese company Verde has a wide variety of dispenser packs, featuring dual flavours like strawberry and butter, blueberry and butter, oligo honey and butter, chocolate and peanut, black and white chocolate, and maple syrup and butter (not pictured).


The company announced the next flavour duo to appear in the range: intense matcha and milk-flavoured cream. The cream is actually a milky white chocolate, which, when combined with the strong matcha flavour, creates a creamy, bittersweet taste. These packages of on-the-go breakfast spreads went on sale around the country from 19 February and you can get a pack of four for  Y162.



Each dispenser pack features a special opening designed to create an attractive ribbon effect when poured, and uses powdered green tea sourced from Uji, Kyoto’s famous tea-growing region. While their range is designed to be used on bread, the sauce can also be used to add a hit of matcha flavour to desserts and snacks as well.

Seeing as I have peanut butter and jam every day, this might be a nice way to change things all I have to do is remember to pick up a pack next time I go shopping. I wonder what matcha flavored spaghetti tastes like...

Have a great day!
