Kit Kat Goes “Japanese” With 19 Novel Flavors

February 17, 2010: 10:46 PM EST
In a bid to tap demand for novelty snacks, Nestle recently made available its Kit-Kat bars in 19 new Japanese-influenced flavors that represent different regions in the country. Some of the flavors are striking: wasabi, miso, chili, green tea, soy sauce, sweet potato and melon. Nestle has not indicated how long the favors will be available but it looks to be a temporary campaign; they hope consumers will keep them as souvenirs or as gifts. The company even worked with Japan Post to produce special boxes to mail the Kit-Kats. Kit-Kat is already the top selling chocolate bar in Japan and Nestle is the third largest confectioners in the country, after local suppliers Meiji and Lotte.
