While I was drinking my green tea this morning, I had a flashback of my various experiences with green tea flavored products...
green tea hot... yummy
green tea ice cream... wow
green tea moshi ice cream... awesome
green tea tempura ice cream...really good
green tea toothpaste...argh!!!!
While in Hong Kong, the local Wellcome grocery store stuffs your bag with promotional items. Sometimes these items are just little toy trinkets, seasonal holiday tokens, and in our last days they stuffed our bag with Crest Toothpaste. Fairly innocent looking package, thought it was very useful and stuffed my travel bag one weekend to San Diego. Boy was I in for a rude awakening..green tea flavored toothpaste. I grew up with the minty after aste and still not used to citrus flavored toothpaste but green tea. It was so gross and was too embarrassed to make a run to the liquor store for minty flavored gel toothpaste. Oh well it was definitely a flavor that would require acquired taste and for 2 days I dreaded brushing my teeth.
