mini pudding

I was at the giant Asian supermarket today buying candy, and I found some matcha pudding cups. It was a foil bag, so I couldn’t see the individual pudding cups. I figured the package probably contained two or three cups. Imagine my surprise (and glee) when I discovered it contained these teeny little cups.

This contains about a spoonful of pudding, and by pudding, I don’t mean the kind Americans are used to but the Asian type, which is more gelatinous and solid (yet flaccid). It was quite delicious (wasteful, but delicious).

    Oh I adore you and you’re odd foodstuffs. The gelatinous is definitely a no go area for me, so kudos to you for your texture non-issues. Those puddins’ are very cute and look like jam packs at diners.

    Oooh, they are super cute. I miss playing supermarket roulette in Tokyo and getting surprises like that. I’ll have to find a good Japanese supermarket here in Sydney.

    I love japanese pudding – one of my favorite desserts ever! You described the texture perfectly – gelatinous yet flaccid. I bet that one was super delicious!

    It looks like you recovered from the rotary cutter incident?
    Mmm, matcha, I was with you until “solid (yet flaccid)”
    Did you see that Superbuzzy got a mention on the “Print & Pattern” blog?

    I too love anything matcha, so I was delighted to discover Matcha Green Tea yogurt at Trader Joe’s last week. I was pleasantly surprised, given my disappointment with the matcha cupcake mix they also carry. The yogurt was thicker than normal yogurt and smooth, like greek yogurt. It could be more matcha-y, but I really enjoyed it.
