Introduced in 1992, Meltykiss is a winter-limited chocolate brand produced and sold by Meiji. One primary reason why it is sold only during the cold winter months is that in the summer heat of Japan it is difficult to keep the snow-like smooth melty chocolate.

Flavors

According to the official website of Meiji, the chocolate Meltykiss comes in 6 flavors this winter, “Premium Chocolat”, “Fruity Thick Strawberry”, “First Flush Matcha Green Tea”, “Koku-Uma Caramel Butter”, “Melt-In-The-Mouth Rum & Raisin”, and “Melt-In-The-Mouth Brandy & Orange”.

And here is the Matcha green tea flavored chocolate. It is shaped like a cube and has a two-layer structure. The exterior consists of a thin layer of gentle-tasting milk chocolate, while the green tea flavor of the inner Matcha chocolate is not overpowering but mild and well-balanced with the outer milk chocolate. The chocolate is very smooth, melts in your mouth, and is similar to Nama Chocolate.
