One interesting thing about Japan are it’s Kit Kat candy bars. Everyone has probably eaten a Kit Kat and knows that they are creme filled wafers, covered in an layer of milk chocolate. But In Japan, Kit Kats come in a huge variety of flavors, everything for the regular chocolate to a crazy Wasabi flavor, some really good and some truly awful. What’s interesting is that different seasons and different regions of Japan have different flavors of Kit Kats that people collect as souvenirs of that region.
Once I saw that there were so many flavors of Kit Kats, I started watching out for new flavors to try whenever I was traveling.
Soy sauce flavored Kit Kats sounds pretty strange and possibly awful, but they were actually pretty good. They had a sweet and salty flavor, kind of like chocolate covered pretzels.
