Kit Kat bars are, for some reason, very popular in Japan. So popular, in fact, that the Japanese make Kit Kats in an impressive array of flavors, ranging from “sweet potato” to “cherry blossoms in the snow”*. They’ve done a great job of adapting a foreign-made thing for Japanese tastes. And even if you’re not Japanese, aren’t you a little curious to try a kiwi, wasabi or Nagoya Red Bean Sandwich Kit Kat?

We sure are. But descending on the 7-11 stores of Tokyo in search of every flavor of Kit Kat is not on our radar right now. So what’s a gaijin to do if he/she wants to try an exotic Japanese Kit Kat?

What anyone who wants something exotic or Japanese must do: turn to the Internet. Here at CPAC-Fuller, we have already done the work for you. There are many online stores that offer Asian candy but their selection of Japanese Kit Kats is often limited. This variety pack offers 15 flavors of Japanese Kit Kat, including edamame, purple sweet potato and pear.

O shokuji o o tanoshimi kudasai! (Bon appetit!)
