Our Slice of Tokyo Urban Ideas and Travel Tips

Joining the KitKat Craze

Recently a lot of my friends have been posting pictures of KitKat chocolates in social networks. Since I have access to the unique flavors of KitKat, I decided to join the KitKat craze.

For those who visit Japan, the tour is not enough without buying “omiyage,” “pasalubong,” or souvenirs for our family and friends. From small things bought in Daiso or 100-yen stores up to high end electronics and cameras from Akihabara, our luggages are not enough for all things “made in Japan”!!! And one of them is a bag or bags of KitKat with unique flavors. Every now and then, I try to look for new flavors of KitKat especially when I visit a sweet shop in tourist-infested places. Here are some of my finds:

Kitkat Green Tea Kyoto
Kyoto’s Green Tea flavor

Green tea flavor is an all-time favorite. This version of green tea has a stronger taste and less sweet compared to the others.


Cheesecake from Yokohama

At first it tasted more like white chocolate for me. But after two sticks, I was able to recognize the cheese flavor.


Green Tea with Sakura (Cherry blossoms)

Special edition of KitKat in line with Sakura season.



Raspberry flavor

My new favorite! It has tiny bits of raspberry inside which adds texture and freshness to the chocolate.


wasabi kitkat
Wasabi KitKat

I am not a fun of wasabi so I did not try this one yet. However, I gave it as a present to a friend abroad who misses Japan so much!


Pumpkin Pudding for Halloween (photo credit:thingsfromjapan.net)

This is only available during autumn especially Halloween celebration . I buy this to give as present for Trick or Treats.

  1. I love trying new KitKat Flavors,though until now the Matcha KitKat are my absolute favorite 🙂
    Have you been to the KitKat Store? I still haven’t but can’t wait to get there

    1. Not yet too 🙁 I guess if I’m there I would be like a kid saying: Yadda..yadda..ikinai..ikinai!!

        1. same here… I plan to go there soon with my husband 🙂 I need to be with somebody to pull me out of store just in case 😉

          1. Hi!! I went to Ikebukuro KitKat Chocolatory 🙂 Please see my newest post about it 🙂

  2. green tea sakura is the only one I have tried from this! when i was in japan last year, i was on the lookout for weird flavors but even the kitkat store only have premium ones, not that weird actually. but i loved the chili chocolate one! too expensive, as compared to the regular ones, though.

    1. Sometimes they have it in regular groceries but very seasonal. There is a KitKat store in Ikebukuro but I have not been there yet.. Very soon!!! There is also a sweet store in Ameyokocho in Ueno. They are quite cheaper than regular sweet shops. Let me know when you are back. Would be happy to have a KitKat hunt with you 🙂

      1. wow yes, sige kitakits!!! hihihi thanks Anna! yup, those were the ones we visited. we had a hard time looking for the kitkat store in ameyokocho but fortunately, it was a success! i love love kitkat!!!
