Matcha Latte

The Matcha latte KitKat has a unique, creamy taste, blending the earthy, slightly bitter notes of matcha green tea with the smooth, sweet richness of Japanese milk.

From Hokkaido, of course, Hokkaido Strawberry & Adzuki Bean KitKats combines the sweet, tart flavor of ripe strawberries with the nutty, mildly sweet taste of adzuki beans, creating a harmonious fusion. 

Peach KitKat

The sweet taste of peach is packed inside a simple KitKat. This makes a great snack for an outdoor picnic as it is very popular in the sunny regions of Japan's southern island.  

Tokyo Banana

These aren’t actual bananas. A Tokyo Banana is a popular Japanese sponge cake filled with creamy banana custard. This KitKat expertly recreates the cream and fruity taste.

Amaou Strawberry

Known as the ‘King of Japanese Strawberries’, Amaou strawberries are juicy and incredibly sweet, with a vibrant, slightly tart edge. They have a deep, aromatic flavor, distilled in the KitKat. 

Kobe Pudding

The Kobe pudding KitKat offers a luxurious, creamy texture with a rich, milky flavor, subtly enhanced by caramel undertones. 

Yuzu Sake

These are non-alcoholic, with the Yuzu sake taste combining the tart, citrusy notes of yuzu fruit with the sweet profile of sake. 


Famous all over the world, wasabi is known for its spicy flavor profile. But with just a dash in these KitKat bars, you can taste the mild undertones of the wasabi plant.
