200 Different Flavors Of KitKats In Japan

Countries like England and the Philippines may have some interesting KitKat flavors, but for sheer variety, none of them come close to Japan. There, KitKats come in regional flavors like yubari melon, corn, green beans and cherry. There are also national staples like miso, green tea, and the most popular flavor of all: soy sauce. Part of the appeal stems from KitKat’s completely unintentional similarity to the phrase Kitto Katsu, which translates as “surely win” in Japanese. Over time, KitKats have become a popular good luck charm and gift. One tradition involves sending special KitKat postcards to college students just before big exams.

Let's see some of the most interesting flavours:

1. COOKIES AND CREAM

The list starts with the very tame cookies and cream—a flavor so unassuming, that it’s surprising it can’t be found anywhere else.

2. GREEN TEA

Another tame contender, green tea tastes a lot like vanilla or white chocolate. The subtle tea flavor makes this snack ideal for any age group.

3.APPLE PIE

These were released in honor of Easter this year. There is a rabbit illustration printed on each piece, all wrapped in a cute packaging for the holiday.

4. STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE

Lovers of decadent desserts will want to get their hands on this one.

5. PUMPKIN PUDDING

Who can say no to anything pumpkin flavored in October?

6. BAKED SWEET POTATO

The packaging for these recommends that you bake them for the real effect.

7. APPLE

Reviewers claim that this flavor tastes just like a real apple, instead of the candy apple flavor Americans are more accustomed to.

8. PURPLE SWEET POTATO

These bright lavender snacks are sure to be a hit with any lovers of candy aesthetic.

9. RUM RAISIN

It’s unclear who actually enjoys rum raisin flavor (grandparents?), but now lovers of the widely detested ice cream can enjoy it in Kit Kat form.

10. WASABI

According to the reviews, these aren’t actually spicy, but they do manage to retain some subtle notes of wasabi—this is probably for the best.

11. RED PEPPER

Unlike the wasabi flavor, these Kit Kats do pack a punch. Mixed with the chocolate, it makes for a very interesting snack.

12. CITRUS

Despite advertising a variety of citrus flavors, reviewers claim that these mostly just taste like oranges.

13. SWEET BEAN JELLY

Red bean flavored KitKats have potential, but advertising them in a toasted sandwich somehow makes it look completely unappetizing.

14. RASPBERRY

This fruity rendition is said to be more tangy than sweet, with a very distinct raspberry taste.
