Kit Kats from Vietnam

Whilst I was in Vietnam recently I obviously had my eyes open looking for Kit Kats, and luckily I found some!

These are actually Japanese Green Tea Kit Kats in a wash bag, which I found at Tan Son Nhat International Airport:

I also found these Japanese Green Tea Kit Kats which are very similar to those found in Japan, but packaged slightly differently. They taste a little different too.

Most exciting of all were these Kit Kats designed for New Year. The red ones are milk chocolate and the green ones are green tea flavour. They’re so cute!

お年玉キットカット2015年 (Otoshidama Kit Kat 2015) (Japan)

‘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?!).

Happy New Year Kit Kat (Japan)

Sorry to be so late in posting this ‘Happy New Year’ Kit Kat from Japan! As with everything from Japan, the attention to detail in this packaging is lovely. This year is the year of the horse, and there’s a little horse on the box saying 「うまっ!」 (‘uma!’). ‘Uma’ means ‘horse’, but this is a play on words as ‘uma!’ (more emphasis on the ‘a’ at the end) means ‘tasty’.

The Kit Kats are just original milk chocolate, but each one comes with a little ‘thank you’ message on the wrapper.

The messages say 「いつもありがとう」 (‘itsumo arigatou’ / ‘thank you, always’), 「ありがとう」 (‘arigatou’ / ‘thank you’), and 「さんきゅ」 (‘sankyu’ / ‘thank you’). These Kit Kats all day “ありがとう (‘arigatou’ / ‘thank you’) & Have a break” – what a lovely gift they’d make!


お年玉 (Otoshidama) Kit Kat

In Japan, on New Year’s Day, kids receive ‘otoshidama‘ (お年玉) from their parents and relatives.  This year, it seems you can give a little Kit Kat luck along with your money!

The above is the front view.  Below, you can see the back view.  On the back, there is a small envelope attached, which is for the money to go in.  There’s also a place for a little message.  This really is such a cool design!

Inside, it’s just a regular Kit Kat, by the way.  Maybe next year they will bring out different flavoured ones!
