The Japanese take our love for matcha very seriously! Japan’s love for green tea matcha has entered daily life beyond just a delicious beverage. Matcha began to find its way into tasty snacks that we had no idea would become a Japanese export industry.
Many tourists and visitors have fallen in love with Japanese matcha snacks, which up to this time could only be found in Japan. But, the global craze for matcha is demanding new ways to find these health-infused green tea snacks. They’ve become so popular that you can now find many of them on Amazon.
I have listed my 17 best choices for matcha snacks. Don’t just take my word for it, those listed below have received at least a customer review of 4.5/5. All products are directly imported from Japan.
So, what kinds of matcha snacks and desserts are available? Here are my top 17 matcha snack products from Japan on Amazon!
You will find rich chocolate, cream, and green tea all in one in this snack. These will satisfy and at the same time give sweetness and health benefits. They feature the delicious taste of green tea, chocolate, and pie. Since it is in individual packs, you can share it with your friends and loved ones yet there’s no need for a container to store the unfinished choco pies.
The KitKat that we love also comes in green-tea-covered wafers. Some expect it to have a bitter taste, but the flavor is nice and sweet. Have a KitKat break and you will want more. They’re yummy, and you can still feel the lingering flavor in your mouth of the matcha. Whether crumbled or whole, you can have this snack with a green tea drink, coffee, or a milkshake. A small sweet that also makes a lovely garnish to your cake, cream, or other desserts.

When traveling round-trip to Japan, you won’t want to miss tasting chocolates from Royce. You won’t even have to worry about finding the nearest washroom to wash your hands, because this Royce Nama Chocolate Maccha has quality packaging with a small plastic spoon inside so you don’t have to touch and risk destroying those green tea chocolates. If buying at the airport, it is best to ask to pack this with ice so it won’t melt inside your carry-on bag. The ice that they will give you is nicely packaged and will not leak. Indulge with these squares and you will feel the combined sweetness and bitterness that turns out to be one of the most delicious green tea snacks ever.

Love green tea lattes? From the makers of Pocky comes another type of biscuit snack made in Thailand. Pejoy is a stick snack where you can take a bite and taste the green tea filling inside. A perfect match with an actual latte drink, coffee, or green tea drink. Also a convenient snack for a day out with your lover.
The famous Glico snack where you can pull a stick and take a bite or share it with your special friend. Imported from Japan, Pocky in matcha green tea flavor is a perfect snack if you want a few biscuits with creamy green tea taste. Good for people who are on a diet but want to satisfy their sweet cravings with only a very small amount of flour, dairy, and sugar.

Oh, we love cookies with our tasty green tea. And these cookies from Akai Bohshi are well known in Japan for their very high-quality sweet snacks. This company is a favorite from my homeland and their boxed cookie confections are often given as gifts. In my homeland of Japan, it is tradition to give boxed cookies and food as gifts. Many Japanese children grew up with this company, so I recommend it highly. Each cookie is individually wrapped for freshness. Package contains 12 individual cookies with matcha green tea and 3 other flavors.
Delicious green tea cream sandwich cookies are the perfect afternoon treat with your cup of Japanese green tea. Sweet matcha green tea cream is encased between two crisp wafer cookies.
Japanese jelly is a healthy and tasty sweet treat. Once popular in the U.S., Japan has always had an obsession for sweet jelly treats. These traditional Japanese delicacies are typically made from agar, which is a Japanese innovation used for centuries in Japanese cuisines. Most are vegetarian and vegan. This set contains traditional jelly in matcha and 4 other flavors. Includes 9 pieces of 1.5 oz (about 4 grams) each.
Is candy a snack? It is in my home, and especially when it contains Japanese matcha. This is a wonderful milk candy that is creamy and sweet. With this package you’ll receive 3 bags, so you can do the math and see what a great deal it is. Don’t forget that it’s also a healthy snack treat for your kids when they beg you for a piece of candy.
Remember that eating too much of any snack is not good for your health. Like drinking green tea, these treats are healthier than your regular processed snacks in pouches – but they’re still sweets and treats and should be enjoyed in moderation!

Tapioca drinks have swept a vast number of countries with their steady hold on teenagers and young adults, and Japan is not an exception to this.
