Japanese Wasabi Kit Kat

Japanese Wasabi Kit Kat 1

While waiting for our orders at Ton-Chan Ramen - San Gabriel, Gourmet Pigs brought out a wasabi-flavored Kit Kat she picked up at the airport in Japan.

It's been a while since I've done a fun food post, so thought I'd share.

We split the mini Kit Kat because while I was intrigued by the concept, I really didn't know if I'd want to eat a whole bar of wasabi-flavored chocolate.

From appearances, it almost looks like a green tea Kit Kat, but the taste clearly indicated this was wasabi. Just a light kick, so it wasn't overpowering.

Anyway, fun to try. Have you tried any other odd Kit Kat flavors? Apparently, there is a whole slew of them.

  1. A friend of mine gave me "cheese" kit-kats. they smelled cheesy and tasted awful to me. my husband, on the other hand, enjoyed it.

  2. CC,
    Uh, yeah, I don't know about cheese and chocolate. Well, when it's not part of a wine pairing.

  3. there wasn't any chocolate in it, from what i remember. the outer coating was white (white chocolate?) but i couldn't get past the smell. it wasn't cheddar cheese but some really gross stink feet cheese smell.

  4. CC,
    White chocolate is still chocolate. Hmm. Do Japanese like stinky cheese?
