Did you know there are over 300 flavors of Japanese kit kat?
If you really want that break, you can head on over to Tokyo, where more than 300 Japanese flavors of the iconic chocolate biscuit bar are on display at the brand new Kit Kat Museum located in the Nestle Cafe, right smack in the middle of Harajuku.
How you would pick a favorite flavor out of more than 300 is beyond me, but that's what some visitors have surely been doing at the Kit Kat Museum in Tokyo, a temporary exhibit lasting only until October 10th. Making its debut in 1973, Kit Kats have become one of Japan's favorite snacks. In 2014, Kit Kats were the top-selling confection in the country. One of the reasons for the chocolate bar's success in Japan is the abundance of flavors. Since 2000, there have been over 300 regional, seasonal, and special flavors, ranging in everything from Caramel Macchiato McFlurry to Okinawa to Okinawa Sweet Potato. Other notable Kit Kats have tasted like soy sauce, apple, miso soup, hot Japanese chili, watermelon, ginger ale, sweet pudding, and even sake. The list, as you can imagine, goes on and on. Even if you tasted one flavor a day, it would take you almost an entire year to eat every single Japanese Kit Kat. Gimme a break!
Check out some photos of the museum and its mouth-watering exhibit, along with some notable flavors. Unfortunately, you'll have to leave the actual tasting to your imagination.
