Pumpkin Pie

Name: Green Tea Mini Pie
Place Purchased: Chinatown (Los Angeles)
Price: $3.99
Size: 5.2 oz
Type: Nut Brittle

These are one of the oddest things I’ve bought in ages. Made from pumpkin seeds, corn syrup and green tea concentrate they’re little bricks of pumkin seed brittle.

They look a bit strange, very green like they’re made from seaweed or something. And they smell like, well, green tea and pumpkin seeds - which is not exactly an enticing combo. But the simplicity of it and the unique essence of pumpkin and green tea is really nice. They actually look like the picture on the package.

They’re pretty good for snacking and not terribly sweet. They’re mostly pumkin seeds, so it’s very filling. The biggest drawback really is the price. At four bucks for about a third of a pound, they’re pretty pricy for something that I usually throw out when carving a pumpkin.

Rating: 7 out of 10

  1. Sounds like Japanese peanut brittle, only without the peanuts or the buttery brittle stuff.

    And I like peanut brittle, but I haven’t had any in ages.

    Green tea and pumpkin seeds, however, is something I can mix together here at home. I’ll see if I like the combo before giving these a shot, but thanks for trying them for us!
