While at the airport in Japan I picked up a few items at the shops to bring home with me.
One of the things that caught my eye were some different flavors of KitKat.
I picked up boxes of Uji Matcha, Peach and Strawberry.
Each box had three individually wrapped small KitKat bars. Here is one of the peach KitKat bars.
I had expected the Peach KitKat bars to be pink or yellow, but they were shades of white. They did have a fairly intense peach taste, and I really enjoyed them.
The Strawberry KitKat bars were pink, and had a wonderful strawberry flavor.
The Uji Matcha KitKat bars were green which was expected at matcha is made from green tea.
I also enjoyed the taste of these, although I much prefer other types of tea. However, matcha is very Japanese.
There were a few other flavors of the KitKat bars, but these were the ones that caught my eye and the ones I wanted to try.
There have been 100’s of KitKat flavors sold through the years in Japan. The ones shown here in this post are fairly tame. I would someday like to try a Wasabi, Baked Potato or Miso Soup KitKat.
Next time I go to Japan, I may have to go KitKat hunting 🙂
