More Kit-Kat! :)

As some of you may know one of my favourite things about living in Japan was discovering new flavours of kit-kat chocolates. Japan has an impressive array of kit-kat flavours. I was actually told that every Prefecture has its own flavour but I only came across a handful of them.

Right before I left Japan I came across 2 new flavours: pomegranate and blueberry cheesecake, neat right? I have tied them both. The pomegranate one has very tangy taste that I have never associated with chocolate, the colour of the chocolate is also yellow and while it was a very new flavour for me, I did enjoy it. The blueberry cheesecake one was just way too sweet for me. It did however taste like cheesecake, but nothing like blueberry. I don’t have a very sweet tooth so I wasn’t a big fan, but I can see someone who enjoys sweet chocolate liking this one.

I’m not sure if the pomegranate flavour kit-kat is from a particular region, but I know the cheesecake blueberry one is famous around the Mt. Fuji area. Even the box is in the shape of Mt. Fuji. If interested in finding different flavour kit-kat one can go to any grocery store in Japan. Every couple of months based on the seasons, flavours will change. Foe example, in the spring you can find sakura (cherry blossom) flavour, or in summer you can find watermelon flavour.

Have you found any other interesting kit-kat flavours? Would love to see how many flavours are out there!
