Two new Kit Kat flavors were released here yesterday. (Thanks Julie for the head's up!) So, after dinner, we headed into Zushi in search of Ume Soda (plum soda) and ChocoMango. Not only did we find them, we also found two new flavors to us too. Not sure how long they've been out, but we picked up a Limited Edition custard and Kinako, toasted soy flour. (Here's an interesting blog on Japanese snacks.)
This is the plum soda. Ever have a green Kit Kat? Like I said before, we've never had a bad Kit Kat experience, even with all these wild flavors. This one was no exception and was pretty wild. Not much to talk of until after the first couple of chews, and then the flavor just explodes! Very yummy.
This is a mixed bag of both choco and mango. Not sure of the real specifics. We only tried the Mango one and it wasn't too bad. Much more subtle in taste than the Ume. You can buy Kit Kats here in a variety of sizes. This is a bag of mini bars. You can also get just the mango in a two pack too.
Here are the two extras we found. We walked all around Zushi going to all the convinient stores, before finding the new flavors at the train station, all we had to do was go right instead of left. (We got them at the circle, heart, star store.) But then we wouldn't have found these others!
Custard, again a very subtle taste.
Kinako. We didn't know what these were when we first tried them. They're chocolate, but not quite. Again, still tasty. These are bite size balls, almost like a malted ball of chocolate.
It's rather interesting to do blog searches of Japanese Kit Kats. They're quite the craze amongst foreigners. Not sure if the Japanese get as excited about them as we do, but it's sure a fun treat.
