Kit Kat Tokaido Shinkansen Set (キットカット 東海道新幹線セット)Posted: March 17, 2013
Another fabulously designed Kit Kat set from Japan – the Kit Kat Tokaido Shinkansen Set (キットカット 東海道新幹線セット). You might remember a couple of years ago when I bought a Kit Kat Shinkansen (bullet train), which was absolutely incredible. This set is not quite as cool, but still remarkably detailed and absolutely geeky!
Here’s the ad from the Japanese Kit Kat website:
And here it is…
The set contains four boxes, each one containing three mini two-finger milk chocolate Kit Kats. Unlike many other Japanese Kit Kats, there’s nothing unusual about the flavours – this set is all about the packaging. The boxes are designed with Shinkansen station signs: Shin-Osaka, Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagoya. These stations are all from the Tokaido Shinkansen line.
This set is perfect for train lovers, with information on the back of the main box, as well as the smaller boxes, about Japanese trains:
The Kit Kats themselves are also decorated with pictures of trains:
This is the ultimate geek treat!
