new Kit Kat Chocolatory opening up in Hokkaido, with a new flavor butter.
Limited-edition sweets pay tribute to local culinary traditions. This is why KitKat is so popular. As one of the few regions of Japan with ample pasture space, Hokkaido is home to a large number of the country’s dairies. That’s why when the newest Chocolatory opens on March 7 in Sapporo, Hokkaido’s capital city,people will be able to purchase not only traditional chocolate Kit Kats, but also the Chocolatory Special Butter flavor.
The flavor was picked as the winner in a contest organized by the Tsuji Group culinary school.
The Special Butter flavor will be available in packs of 12 for 1,200 yen, or in four-piece boxes for 400 yen.
While there get your Green tea on as well!
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.
