Who here are big fans of kitkat? You know the milk chocolate-wafer goodness that you think is the best in the world. But hold on, what are these?
Japanese Kitkats with flavors I never thought possible! They have Green Tea or Macha in two versions: Sakura and Uji-Matcha (personal favorite). They also have Blueberry cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake, brown sugar, and strawberry flavored kitkats!
Few years ago you can only have a taste of these unique flavors as pasalubong when a friend travels to Japan. But now you can buy these in Manila! The only downfall is that it’s more expensive.
[UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2014] – I just tried a NEW flavor: WASABI:
So how does the wasabi flavored kit kat taste like? It’s not spicy don’t worry! It imitated perfectly the unique taste that wasabi has without the nose scorching heat it usually comes with. It’s quite creamy and sweet! I like it.
Places where you can buy Japanese Kitkats:
1. Taste Central: http://www.tastecentral.com (Most convenient)
You can buy all the flavors in one site and have your kitkats delivered on your doorstep! Hassle free
KitKat Price range: P150-P700
2. Greenhills Shopping Center, 2nd floor, new mall side, beside the elevator
If you’re not in favor of online shopping then you can go over to green hills. This has to be the most expensive store.
Kitkat Price range: P700-P1500
3. Teppen Japanese and Korean Grocery (Cheapest)
(Marvin Plaza Makati along Chino Roces ave. corner Herera)
If you’ve never tried any of these kitkats then I suggest you go to this store first since they sell per piece. It’s the building corner of Shell Gas Station and Goldilocks in Chino Roces, Makati City.
Kitkat Price range: P40 (two mini bars) – P480 (cheapest!)
I heard you can also buy at Cash & Carry Makati, at a japanese store on the second floor.
There you have it! Time to indulge!
