What an Amazing Flavore of Japanese KitKat (キットカット) Sweet !

Japan has many kinds of KitKat, and many foreigners buy them for Japanese sweet’s souvenirs. I introduce some rare kinds of KitKat. Reviews of the limited products were collected from the people, asking which KitKat they like.

“Wasabi (Japanese horseradish) Flavored Kitkat” (Shizuoka, Kanto area limited)

You will either love or hate this taste. It does not have a strong bitterness like eating fresh wasabi. It has a mysterious taste which has a hint of bitterness hidden within the sweetness.

We suddenly come to want a toy that we don’t even look at usually, when other babies play with it. It may be human nature that we aren’t interested in something we get easily but we come to want something which is hard to obtain. Japanese can’t resist limited products, such as “area-limited” or “time-limited”.
