While Japan is home to countless great candy brands, including Pocky and Hello Panda, it’s Nestlé’s KitKat chocolate-covered wafers that prove the treat of choice for the Japanese. Most areas in Japan have their own limited-edition regional KitKat variation, and flavours range from sweet, such as apple or purple sweet potato, to sharp, including citrus and wasabi. The combination of milk chocolate and classic Japanese flavours makes for interesting snacking and great souvenirs, so we’ve found 10 of the most unusual KitKat flavours available in Japan that you should try.
