What’s Green and Crunchy and Not The Flavor You Think It Is?

Okay, I know it’s not green tea. I’m not even going to waste a guess saying it might be green tea.

Wait, why?

Because in Japan most cookies and cakes and other things that ought not ever to be green (except on St.  Patrick’s day) are green tea flavor. I’m not saying it’s right, but that’s how it is. So I’m not going to guess green tea.

Okay, if it’s not green tea, Miss Know-It-All Smartypanties, what is it?

Wasabi. I’m going to guess wasabi.

Hunh? Wasabi? You mean the sushi bar “when you bite it, it bites you back” kind of wasabi? Who would ever make a cookie that tastes like wasabi?

Japanese macaroon makers.

It’s not even a fruit!

I’m telling you, that cookie is going to taste like wasabi. I’m right, aren’t I? Aren’t I? Bet you a trip to Vegas.
