Two Meiji reviews in a row! My husband loves pistachios, so the last time I ordered KitKats from JBox, I picked this up with him in mind. The deep green packaging was quite attractive, which also lured me in.
I feel like I should mention the recent United States pistachio recall, but this bar is from Japan, and to my knowledge, Japan has not been affected by this. Plus, neither my husband nor I got sick from it.
The bar was a pale green (lighter than the matcha bar) with brown flecks. It smelled a bit like roasted nuts. The flavored white chocolate tasted rich and smooth, and the bar had a lovely texture. As for the pistachio flavor, the bar was just a bit salty with a mild pistachio taste.
The bar wasn't too sweet, and had just a hint of nuttiness. All in all, it was another good white chocolate bar from Meiji! Personally, I thought the pistachio flavor could have been stronger, but my husband was able to detect the taste better than I was.
