Wasabi Kit Kat

My wife recently came into possession of a box of wasabi-flavoured Kit Kat bars. She scoffed them all herself, naturally, but one of her colleagues also had a few lying around and generously donated them to me.

The packaging is as pretty as you’d expect from the Japanese.

Box interior. It originally held twelve pieces. They’re fairly small: thumb-length, basically.

On the back of the individual Kit Kat wrapper is, ummm, a space for you to doodle? Write a shopping list? (“Need more wasabi Kit Kats”).

And the taste? The wasabi flavour is definitely there, but combining it with the chocolate has removed its spicy kick. Which is the whole point of wasabi, as far as I’m concerned. This is wasabi for the kind of people who like alcohol-free beer.

Still, if this has whet your appetite wait until you read this review of 15 different flavours available in Japan, including pear, sweet potato, and tea.

    I’m disappointed to hear that they don’t have the kick. I suppose you could just dip them in some wasabi though. That…wouldn’t be weird.

    Blech. Those are just wrong. I like your review though, and yes, likely much like alcohol free beer. Which my father drinks…perhaps I should send him some wasabi kit kats?
