ご当地アソート東日本 & 西日本 (Eastern Japan & Western Japan Assortment) Kit Kats (Japan)

I’m a sucker for packaging and gimmicks and, even though I had tried all of the flavours included in these Eastern and Western Japan assortment boxes of Kit Kats, I had to add them to my collection!

Inside both boxes there is a map of Japan showing all of the regional Kit Kats:

The map shows all of the regional Kit Kats – not all of which are included in the assortments. I believe I have tried them all now, except one: とちおとめ (Tochiotome) – Kit Kats flavoured with a type of strawberry from Tochigi Prefecture. Even though I have tried lots of other strawberry Kit Kats, I shall have to make it my mission to try to find them when I’m in Japan soon!

Maybe I’ll get lucky in the new Kit Kat Chocolatory store in Tokyo! I’m ridiculously excited about visiting the world’s first Kit Kat store, and might need someone to restrain me from buying the lot! 😉 (Read more about the Chocolatory here!)
