You might remember that I’ve posted before about the Kit Kat Chocolatory stores in Japan, well you can imagine how excited I was when I heard a store was popping up in London! The store was in the Westfield shopping centre in London for five weeks from 5th October – 8th November, and luckily I was able to squeeze in a visit.
A selection of just four special limited edition flavours were available each week, and as my mum managed to sneak in a visit too I was able to try eight of them! Each one was such a unique flavour, and beautifully decorated.
Whilst I was there, I also had a go at creating my very own Kit Kat…
What a fabulous experience! I do wish the store was there permanently.
Last year when I was at the O2 in London I came across this Kit Kat bench!
I found this great Kit Kat bus tin at Heathrow Airport in 2015…
It was full of four-finger and chunky Kit Kats.
Kit Kat really need to come up with something a bit more creative for their Easter Egg designs – this is almost the same as last year!
I love it when Japan gets all creative with packaging, and this shinkansen (bullet train) Kit Kat box is among the best I’ve seen. Had it been just one shinkansen it would have been cool…
But inside it I found another and another! The yellow one is the famous ‘Doctor Yellow‘ (ドクターイエロー) test train.
The Kit Kats inside were very tasty ‘mikan’ (みかん) orange flavour and the individual packets had different types of bullet trains on them.
From what I could gather you were supposed to fit the three trains together to make one long train… so I did!
Hours of fun and tasty Kit Kats!
‘Otoshidama’ (お年玉) is a an envelope containing money given to children by their elders at New year in Japan. This year Kit Kat has made an Otoshidama Kit Kat:
The box has an envelope on the back of it for the money.
As it is the year of the sheep, the Kit Kats and box are decorated with cute sheep!
The gold Kit Kat says it is a rare golden package (I’m sure there’s one in every box!) and that perhaps this year something good will happen! (レアなゴールデンパッケージ 今年いいことあるかも？！).
I’ve posted ‘Adult Sweetness Matcha’ Kit Kats from Japan before, but this one I received from a colleague visiting from Japan has a different packet.
This packet is advertising ネスレシアター (Nestle Theater) which, from what I can gather, is some kind of website containing short films made by Nestle: Nestle Theater.
Here’s a trailer for the one I thought looked most interesting:
It’s about a Japanese band called DISH// and it’s pretty good actually. Chapters one and two are available here, and chapters three and four will be out next week. The videos have English subtitles, so even if you don’t speak Japanese you can still enjoy them (they feature some Mandarin too). Look out for the Kit Kat’s guest appearance!
