I love the Big Little range – they’re so yummy!
One of my favourite flavours of Kit Kats recently – Chocco Mint Ice Cream (チョコミントアイス):
Little balls of strawberry Kit Kat job, found in Japan in May 2014…
In Japan I found these delicious Orange Peel flavour Kit Kat balls. They had a really deep orangey taste, and a great smell!
‘Adult Sweetness’ matcha is a slightly more bitter version of a matcha (green tea) Kit Kat, and these ‘Big Little’ balls are just divine!
Kit Kat fans, I’ve been terribly slack and must apologise for not posting any new Kit Kats since June! It’s a new year now and I’m going to try to catch up on the last 6 months’ worth of Kit Kats. Here’s a tasty treat from Japan to get us started:
This is 塩&キャラメルBigリトル (Salt & Caramel Big Little) Kit Kat. These little balls of Kit Kat are utterly delicious, and I’d be hooked on them if only they sold them here in the UK!
I’ve posted about Kit Kat Big リトル (Big Little) from Japan before, but in June last year I was able to get a boxed version, which I think is pretty cool:
It reminded me of those boxes of Maltesers you can get. I don’t know why the shape should make the taste any different, but I do prefer these to regular Kit Kats. They’re very moreish though!
One thing I love about Japanese Kit Kats is trying to work out what all of the writing on the packaging says. On the back of this box (below) there’s a cute Kit Kat Big リトル talking (it looks like Pac-Man) and he’s saying 「サクッサク触感のキットカット Bigリトル！」 (sakusaku shokkan no kitto katto big ritoru). This means something like “crunchy texture Kit Kat Big Little”. Elsewhere on the box it says 「パクパクウマイ」 (pakupaku umai), which is a little harder to translate. ‘Pakupaku’ is a sort of opening and closing of the mouth, much like a puppet’s mouth, and ‘umai’ means ‘delicious’, so I guess it’s saying that they’re delicious to eat. Japanese onomatopoeic words (giseigo, giongo and gitaigo) are fascinating, but can be hard to translate! As geeky as this sounds, it’s my dream to be able to pick up a Japanese Kit Kat and be able to read and understand every word on it!
