Among all sweets, snacks and other stuff to nibble at any time of the day, I think the one I prefer is Kit Kat. You know, this crunchy wafers, milk chocolate-coated.
But, even if I knew that Japan has crazy talents to mix up tastes and flavours, I was far from imagine to such weird, if not dangerous, Kit Kat versions!
On this first picture, we have some wasabi Kit Kat. Yeah wasabi… this Japanese plant of which the roots are used as a spice, generaly with sushi and sashimi, and have an extremely strong flavour. To be honest, I did not prefer to try. I know how chocolate mixed with spice is, since here in Bayonne we can easily find red pepper chocolate. It is very good, my not really my cup of tea. Anyone already tried this?
We can also see soy sauce Kit Kat on the right of the picture. Very strange… moreover it is made with white chocolate.
I also saw these interesting five spice Kit Kat and strawberry cheesecake Kit Kat, but did not give them a try either, mostly because those where sold in quite large boxes, and since I was not sure to be able to eat all of them, it was more reasonable (and safe!) to leave them ^^;
But I still had the chance to taste on quite new Kit Kat…
The cola and lemon squash Kit Kat! Oh my god, what the…
Two diffent snacks in one box. I was expecting something terribly sweetened, and I was not disappointed.
The cola one smelled kind of like cola, the chocolate tasted kind of like it too, but more like a cola bubblegum. Very chemical in the end.
Then the lemon one had a nice yellow color, smelled like lemon and the chocolate had a nice lemon flavour. Despite the high level of sugar, it was definitely the best of the two if you ask me.
But after having tasted these Kit Kat, the ultimate conclusion for me is that nothing is better than the original Kit Kat. And I was happy to find some once back home ^^
Do you have any particular favorite Kit Kat flavour? And for those interested in this kind of snacks, I found this nice blog dedicated to Kit Kat hunting. So many various flavours! Japan is amazing, really.
OM NOM NOM NOM!
