Japanese Kit Kats

06 Apr

Unfortunately most Japanese Kit Kats are limited editions and I think some of these flavors are already no longer available to try. If you are wondering where to buy these, you can head over to, they have great prices. Also, I understand they are expecting other flavors to come in soon and I can’t wait to try them!

Kinako Ohagi Kit Kat: It has a milk chocolate coating, and the filling tasted a bit like peanut butter, I have no clue what it is supposed to taste like though. I described the taste as peanut butter because that is the only thing I could think to relate it to. It was pretty good and I think it might be a good one to start off with if you want to experiment with other Kit Kat flavors, but don’t want something overwhelmingly different.

Sparkling Strawberry Kit Kat: It’s covered in white chocolate (colored pink) and is supposed to taste like a glass of strawberry soda, it did have a bit of a fizz to it, but it seemed to taste more like a strawberry milk shake. If you like strawberry and sweet things, then you would probably like this. My daughter and boyfriend both really liked this one.

Maple Syrup Kit Kat: These came out in honor of the Olympics that were held in Canada. They are covered in white chocolate and the maple syrup flavor was not overwhelming, it seemed to be just right, and they are not too sweet. These were really good, everyone in the house loved them and devoured them!

Milk Coffee Kit Kat: This one came out as something to give, for good luck, to students during exams. There is even an area on the back of the box where you can write a message to whoever you are giving it to. It’s covered in white chocolate,  not really sweet and has a wonderful ‘coffee’ flavor. But if you don’t like coffee you might not like these, and if you do like coffee then you need to try them! Now!

I can’t decide between the maple syrup and milk coffee as my favorite. *sigh*
