KitKats of the World


I saw this article (I failed to capture the link to the gallery, sorry for that) once of some of the weird flavors of KitKat from other countries (Japan mostly).  And it fascinated me how discriminating people's taste can be.  From the simple 'oh yeah why didn't I think of that?' to the bizarre 'oh my, what were they thinking!'.  Sure there are plenty other of variations depending on the culture, festivities (yep, those limited edition stuff they usually release) and even some commemorations.

This will be a series and let's start first from the KITKAT brand.  Take a look (and feast?) your eyes on these rather weird varieties.  Mostly are from Japan and I may say these came up due to taste preference.

This one is a bit extreme for me... so does it have that starchy flavor?

I am interested on this one... that crisp and tangy combination in a kitkat? hmmm...
Im no fan of sweet corn flavor -- except on the actual sweet corn!
makes me ask... why the 'salt'?
As in ' baked' potato? oh my...
I think this one is fairly acceptable
The 'name' ehe... maybe like my fave raisinette combi
Very local... but interesting
huwwaat? this maybe was a mistake, might just be a cover for halloween

I heart green tea so I want to try this one

a normal I would say
maybe a 'forbidden' fruit? ehe
This is just plain weird...
nice.. drooling now..
for the holidays I guess?

Obviously Halloween
I dunno... looks weird to me





even a Wasabi flavored one!
 












Whew!  And the list seems to grow even bigger and  bigger!  Stay posted for the other parts of this chocolate feature... Yum Yum treats to all!!!

  1. I'm a chocolate lover but I'm not sure I want to be paired with anything more than nuts, strawberries and the likes. Haha. I don't know, but Japanese really have the flare of being adventurous with their chocolates, I guess. haha. Great post! :)

  2. I hope we also get our own set of Kitkat flavors (e.g. Durian Kitkat or halo halo flavor). We don't have much variety here but it's gonna be cool to have our localized flavors.

  4. Some KitKat flavors above are kind of weird. But then again, it depends on the people who will eat it. Kudos to Kit Kat for this kind of campaign.

  7. Japan's so innovative. First time I heard the green tea kitkat, I thought it was a joke and then I learned there were more flavors. I wish they'll bring some here.

  25. I'd personally go for the espresso and white chocolate Kit Kat out of all the choices. It combines two of my favorite things: bold coffee and chocolate!

  27. Kitkat is one of my favorites along with serg chocolate which I think not existing anymore.

  28. Most are weird flavors. Pumpkin? Sweet potato? LOL. But I am curious and would like to give them a try. Who know, maybe they're good. Why else would they come up with a flavor like that if it weren't good?

    If I'm not mistaken I've had sweet corn kit kat before. It wasn't bad. XD
