Unique Japanese Kit Kat Flavors

Updated on August 14, 2016

Here in the United States, you've probably only heard of one Kit Kat flavor: the typical saccharine sweet milk chocolate surrounding a crunchy wafer.

However, in Japan, the spectrum of Kit Kat flavors doesn't just stop at simple chocolate; there is an entire rainbow of unique and interesting varieties to try. In fact, there are hundreds of flavors to choose from!

I've picked just a few of the many Kit Kat flavors Japan has to showcase here.

Matcha Kit Kats

Matcha green tea (aka powdered green tea) is incredibly popular in Japan, so it makes sense to create a Kit Kat flavor celebrating matcha!

I've tried these before, and they are delicious. Beware though, I'm a matcha fanatic so my views are probably a little skewed. If you're not a matcha fan, this might taste like grass to you.

Wasabi Kit Kats

Yes, wasabi flavored Kit Kats exist, and they are out to get you.

Wasabi tastes almost like horseradish, and is pretty spicy, causing a burning sensation in your mouth and throat.

I'm not sure how that flavor would translate to a sweet Kit Kat, but they're worth a try!

Azuki (Red) Bean

Azuki beans, or commonly known as red beans, are used frequently in Asian desserts like mochi, pattbingsu, and in baked goods as a filling.

It's an obvious choice to make an azuki bean Kit Kat flavor, given the bean's popularity in Japan.

Personally, I'm not a fan of red beans but getting to try such an interesting Kit Kat would be fun!

Purple Sweet Potato

I love sweet potatoes, and I love Kit Kats! Combining the two must be a match made in heaven!

If you're confused about the potato's purple color, remember that sweet potatoes come in three colors: purple, orange, and white.

Even though their colors are different, the taste is pretty similar.

These Kit Kats are definitely worth a try, and the purple color is beautiful!

Cherry Blossom Kit Kats

Cherry Blossom

Cherry blossoms are beautiful. It's plain to see. Their signature pink color and distinctive shape are treasured all over the world.

However, Japan has taken cherry blossoms to a whole new level by making a Kit Kat flavor out of them! Now, I'm not sure how the candies would taste, since I've never eaten a cherry blossom before.

The Kit Kats are gorgeous though, and the packaging is adorable!

Try a Variety Pack

Buying a variety pack of different Japanese Kit Kat flavors is a great way to try many different flavors without committing to a large pack of a single flavor.

This set sold on Amazon contains a total of 17 minature bars and one mini Kit Kat pack, all in different flavors!


Which one of these Kit Kats sounds the tastiest?
