Name: Green Tea Mini Pie
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.

Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
