KitKat – Kitto Katto

       The Japanese word for KitKat, “Kitto Katto” sounds like the Japanese expression meaning good luck (or literal translation, surely win) “Kitto Katsu”. Because of this, the candy has become a popular treat for students, especially before and around the time of exams. The candy maker Nestle has taken advantage of their popularity by creating dozens of unique KitKat flavors in Japan.  There have been more than 300 limited-edition seasonal and regional flavors of KitKat produced in Japan since 2000, and I have to say, some of them might be a little too unique. Let’s look at a few.



Grilled Potato

Because who doesn’t want their dinner in the form of a candy bar!

Cherry Blossom

Now. This could either taste like cherry or a tree.


Soybeans are good for you… So would this be considered eating healthy?


Time to get your Halloween on!

Sports Drink

Why drink it, when you can eat it!

Red Bean Paste

Mmmm… bean paste candy…

Fruit Parfait

A fruity explosion in your mouth!


These crazy KitKats are far different than the original chocolate covered wafer that most people are used to.  What flavor would you like to try, or what is your favorite flavor of KitKat? Comment below!
