✦ Blueberry Cheese Cake KitKat
So I was looking through my food stash and realized that I have not tried this box of KitKat that I got from Japan! It is in Blueberry Cheese Cake flavour........ ఠ_ఠ Yes I know it sounds weird but it was delicious! For an unforgivable reason, the flavours in KitKat flavours in Japan are crazy cool, some being seasonal and limited edition. Japanese have this craze over limited editions, be it food, stationeries, toys, cosmetics and more. I think I might have caught on this craze...
I went to Japan in September this year and they had this on sale at Narita Airport, when I was there for my return trip back to Singapore. This is exclusive to Japan so please do check out the KitKat flavours if you ever travel to Japan! Last year I brought back Strawberry, Sakura Matcha and Matcha flavours back (´▽`ʃƪ) During my trip, I had Matcha (which is green tea) and Dark Chocolate. Matcha is a common flavour, just like the regular milk chocolate so they can sometimes be found in conbini (convenient shop), supermarket or sweets shop.
Some flavours are seasonal while some are exclusive to the airport/prefectures/omiyage shops. Omiyage means souvenirs. Let's not get started on the souvenir craze in Japan too lol. But it is because of this omiyage culture that exclusive flavours are being produced. Strawberry and Sakura Matcha aren't limited edition flavours but they are exclusive to airport and omiyage shops. Prefecture exclusive means that a particular flavour is available in Osaka but not in Tokyo, for an example. Maybe I will explain this craze in a future blog post!
Product: KitKat Blueberry Cheese Cake by Nestle
Where can you purchase this from: Narita Airport (this item is seasonal)
Price: around ¥1200 (9 packets)
As you can probably tell from the packaging, this flavour is for the autumn season! It is an exclusive Mount Fuji flavour too but it was also available at Narita Airport. There are only 9 packs of KitKat in it, which is expensive for it's price but hey, ~SEASONAL~JAPAN~EXCLUSIVE~ ఠ_ఠ
The KitKat in Japan are smaller than the ones in Singapore, probably smaller than the rest of the world too, but this is the regular size - it is shorter. At the back of every KitKat, regardless of flavour, there will be a small space for you to write messages! This is also part of the omiyage culture - short messages can be written on it when you give it to a friend. It is always the little details in Japan that I find so cute~
This actually do smell like cheese! It is not overpowering though. It does not smell of blueberry and it taste like vanilla. It has a really pleasant taste to it ♥
I cannot believe I rambled so much on a post about KitKat ∑(O_O；)
