Kit Kat Flavors
The Kit Kat: created in England, exported to America, distorted in Japan. Supposedly named after an 18th century club, the chocolate bar is famous the world over.
In Japan the treat has gained popularity due to its similarity to the phrase “kitto katsu” or “you will probably win.” Kids and parents take part in buying and giving as good luck charms.
However, the name is similar to the phrase “kitto katto” in Japanese too (‘katto‘ being the katakana transliteration of the word ‘cut’). This one is a bit of a downer and means “you will most likely miss the cut.” Playing off of this, giving someone a single Kit Kat is a bit of a joke.
In Japan, limited editions featuring seasonal flavors are very common. Just yesterday I bought a bag of the newly released banana flavor! Check out below for a multitude of flavors (note, not all are Japan only flavors).
That is 25 different flavors! If you want to try some for yourself, you can get them from this seller.
