Apple Vinegar flavoured KitKat

Apple Vinegar flavoured KitKat

Fortunately it doesn’t taste as bad as it sounds. Just a tangy apple flavour, with no vinegary taste at all. Quite nice, actually.

Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2009

In Japan it’s traditionally the women that buy and give gifts to their boyfriend/husband on Valentine’s Day.

This year the marketeers have tried to reverse the tradition and get the men to buy for the women. Hence this chocolate with the label printed in reverse.

The period leading up to Valentine’s Day is also a good time to go Engrish spotting.

“University Potato” flavoured KitKat

January 22, 2009

Another unusually flavoured KitKat appeared in the convenience store earlier this week. This time “University Potato” flavour.

University Potato KitKat

I have no idea what a university potato tastes like, but I would hazard a guess that it’s nothing like sickly sweet white chocolate.

The grape flavoured one was exactly the same. Well, apart from being a pale green colour instead of white. Someone on the Japanese KitKat Flickr group suggested that the different flavours that they bring out are nothing more than a marketing gimmick. If it is, it appears to be working, because there are plenty of people (including me) buying them and putting them on teh intarwebs.

These citrus flavoured ones were very nice. Unfortunately the bag I got was the last one on the shelf and I haven’t seen them again.

Muscat of Alexandria KitKat

Have a break. Have a KitKat flavoured with Muscat of Alexandria. Wash it down with a can of Menthol coffee.
