Japan is famous for distributing a bunch of different flavours of KitKat. There may be hundreds out there, changing with the seasons, the most popular, such as green tea, enduring at sweet shops and airports. They even release a sakura flavour for cherry blossom season.
I’ve got a soft spot for Kit Kats because back before Nestlé bought them, the producer was called Rowntrees and based in York, the city where I went to university.
Here are three crazy flavours of KitKat I recently tried.
1. Roasted Green Tea
Roasted green tea is yummy; I love getting lattes from the convenience store. The KitKat tasted almost the same, containing much of the same ingredients and a pleasant tea-like aftertaste.
Wasabi is spicy Japanese horseradish served with sushi. I don’t like wasabi at all, but someone at work gave me this so I gave it a try. It’s actually not bad, though the wasabi and chocolate flavour together is a little strange. It has a spicy aftertaste but it’s not as strong as the real thing. Oddly, it kind of reminded me of mint.
You can get a lot of grape-flavoured goodies here. Fruit and chocolate is always good together, and this pink treat was tasty, though honestly, tasted quite artificial.
I’ll be adding to this list when I come across new Kit Kat flavours. What kinds have you tried?
