Our long time listeners know that Nick is obsessed with fun flavors of Kit Kats and spent much of the early pandemic trying to track down mint Kit Kats. Which are delicious. As part of our research into flavored Kit Kats, we discovered that there are literally hundreds of Kit Kat flavors in Japan. We decided we need to taste these flavors and share our experience with all of you.
Luckily for our wallets, we didn't have to fly to Japan to try all of the Kit Kat flavors, instead we purchased a Japanese Kit Kat Variety Party Box from Bokksu.com. Bokksu is a company that's set out to empower Japan's traditional snackmakers by sharing their authentic food and stories with the world. We were just happy to try the 18 flavors of Kit Kats in the box.
Flavors ranged from odd (Azuki Red Bean & Strawberry Sandwich) to normal (plain Kit Kats) to really fun (Mt. Fuji Strawberry Cheesecake) and everywhere in between. Join us on our journey down the Kit Kat rabbit hole.
If you would like to try your own Japanese Kit Kats, or any of the other authentic Japanese snacks available on Bokksu, use this link to save $15 on your first order. We also tried the OFU Smoked Crackers and Peanuts as a salty snack to go with all the chocolate, and may stock up on ramen soon!
We hope you enjoyed this bonus episode and would love to hear if you have any other taste off ideas for us to try! If you'd like to stay in touch with us, here's how:
Cheers everybody, we'll talk to you soon!
