Gimme a Break


One of the things I would miss a lot if I went back to the States is all the quality sweets in Japan that aren't sold back home. No way in America that green tea or sweet bean flavored chocolate lasts very long. I have to say, I am a big fan of wagashi, or flavors such as kuromitsu (molasses...sort of) and kinako (soy flour). Even familiar stuff like KitKat bars can have a new twist. My all time favorite Japan only flavor had to have been white chocolate/Quebec maple syrup flavor. Mmm... tastes like breakfast.
Just because Todd will want to know... here are the flavors of Nestle KitKats (that I know of) available in Japan right now:
  • Regular

  • Exotic Hokkaido

  • Exotic Tokyo

  • Apple (Nagano only)

  • Fruit Parfait

  • Azuki Bean

  • Annin Dofu

  • Matcha Green Tea

  • Yogurt

  • Starry Sky (celebrating the 5th anniversary of Universal Studios Japan)

  • Ice KitKat

  • Bretagne Milk

  • Yuubari Melon (Hokkaido only)

  • Crispy monogatari (no chocolate coating)

this is not to mention an assortment of mini, big, and other special edition normal Kitkats.

Mmm... crispy. That reminds me, I'm hungry.
