Japanese Style Flavour Kit Kats

 

Aside from the usual milk and dark chocolate that you can pick up in most countries, even in Japanese supermarkets you can pick up interesting and unique Kit Kat flavours, often inspired by traditional Japanese ingredients.

Combine the above flavours and surely you’ve got the most Japanese Kit Kat souvenir possible. This elusive snack can only be found in select Japanese airports.

 

Sake

 

A chocolate bar that tastes like Japan’s most famous alcohol for daring Kit Kat lovers.

 

Hokkaido Melon with Mascarpone Cheese

 

 

A creamy and sweet variation which takes cues from the specialties of Japan’s northernmost prefecture, this one can also only be found in select airports.

 

Regional Specialty Kit Kats

 

Japan has a particularly strong souvenir culture when it comes to food. Souvenirs known as ‘omiyage’ are sold everywhere, boxes of delicious treats that you can only buy in that area. If you go on a trip and don’t bring back omiyage for your friends, family and co-workers… well… you may be persona non grata for a while.

 

Most of these Kit Kats can only be picked up in certain areas of Japan and are sure to thrill your friends (if you haven’t finished off the box before you get back).
