Flavour Surprise!

Yes, Chocolate flavoured water.

Japan is full of special “Limited Edition” products with unusual flavours. Most notable is the incredible variety of Kit-Kat flavours, most appearing and disappearing within a few weeks at most. Flavours seen over the last few years include:

Watermelon
Canteloupe Melon
Banana
Green Tea
Green Tea Milk
Cherry Blossom
Soy Sauce
Mango
Passionfruit
Caramel Macchiato
Cafe Latte
Cappuccino
Sweet Potato
Blueberry Cheesecake
Strawberry Cheesecake
Azuki Bean
Triple Berry Swirl
Muscat Of Alexandria
Apple Vinegar
Ito-En (mixed vegetables and fruit)
Brown Sugar
Chestnut
Salted Milk
Kinako (Sweet Soybean Flour)
Jasmine Tea
Royal Milk Tea

Many are only sold in particular regions of Japan, and are eagerly snapped up as souvenirs for friends back home by people travelling to those areas.

There are already a large number of Japanese Kit-Kat related articles on the web with photos, including:
“kit-kat-flavors-from-around-the-world”
“japans-strangest-kit-kat-flavors”
and this great Flickr set with 100 different Kit-Kats – amazing!
or simply Google “Kit Kat Japan”

And the official Kit-Kat site lists the most recent additions to the regional lists.
