Japanese Kit Kats

One of my favourite things from Japan/items to buy in Japan would have to be Kit Kat’s! Compared to the UK which only has a few flavours, Japan has over 100!

From Wasabi flavour to Azuki (red bean) flavour, you can find many flavours. I’ve tried many a different Kit Kat, thanks to friends sending me them from Japan, as well as Kit Kat’s I have seen on my travels.

Below are a list of Kit Kat’s that I have seen or had sent to me..

When in Japan I noticed all these flavours, click on the pictures below to view more.

Matcha (抹茶) Green Tea Flavour

Gouka Seishi, Japanese Kit Kats

This was one of the first Green Tea Kit Kats I had eaten, I was surprised by the taste being similar to white chocolate at first, and then the green tea has it’s bite at the end.

It’s so strange seeing different coloured biscuits, compared to what I was used to here with normal Kit Kats. The Kit Kats below tasted a bit different to the normal Green Tea Kit Kats.

On a train journey I picked up this Orange Big Choc, which tasted nice. Orange has to be my favourite flavour of all the Kit Kats.

You can also buy them in the packs, such as the orange ones below which I haven’t tried yet.

Sometimes special Kit Kats can be launched, for example this Kit Kat Orange for Tokyo Sky Tree.

The Kit Kats looked normal, but the orange flavour was so overpowering, yet nice :D .

Dark Chocolate Petit

The petit Kit Kats come as single bars, which was different. I loved the Dark Chocolate Kit Kats :) .

Yokohama Strawberry Cheesecake, Matcha Latte, Strawberry and Ice cream flavours!

Uji Matcha Latte

Gouka Seishi, Japanese Kit Kats

Such a weird Kit Kat, nicer than the normal Green Tea Kit Kat as the green tea flavour is overpowered by a nice dark chocolate taste :) .

Ice Cream Kit Kats

Gouka Seishi, Japanese Kit Kats

This is one of my favourite flavours, it has a nice taste and does taste like vanilla ice cream!

Strawberry Cake Kit Kat

Gouka Seishi, Japanese Kit Kats

My first taste of a Strawberry Kit Kat was the one above, they are pink and tasted of Strawberry straight away but..

Yokohama Strawberry Cheesecake Kit Kats

Gouka Seishi, Japanese Kit Kats

These were much nicer, with a stronger taste. They are one of many special Kit Kats around Japan, but these here are for Yokohama with the famous red building (Aka Renga) as the background design.

and another Strawberry Kit Kat..which features a crane on the design. The taste was nice :) of course, but the Yokohama version was my favourite.
