celebrate the anniversary of the Tokaido Shinkansen, Nestle and participating retailers along the Tokaido line joined forces to take a break…with Kit Kats! Their special entry into the Kit Kat lineup comes in the form of a very cute N700 series bullet train, the newest train for the Tokaido Line which made its debut in 2007.
Ripping open the outer package reveals Dr. Yellow, the test train. In Japan, seeing this yellow train means you will have a day of good luck.
Open up Dr. Yellow and you will be greeted by the 0 series, the very first Shinkansen.
The candy inside has the flavor of frozen mikan.
What exactly is a mikan? It’s a fruit similar to a tangerine or a mandarin orange and is a very popular winter snack in Japan. Actually, along the Tokaido line, vendors will sell these frozen mikan because they travel so well! Kit Kat has paired their familiar chocolate with the unforgettable taste of the Japanese citrus to create Frozen Mikan Kit Kats.
