I don’t draw all the time

Occasionally, when I’m not drawing a picture I consume unreasonable amounts of candy. After being introduced to a green tea Kit-Kat from Japan at a specialty shop in Hell’s Kitchen (yeah, that one), I found myself compelled to indulge in one such digression into unhealthy eating habits.

Japanese Kit-Kats are unlike ours in the US. Instead of our meager variety of 3 or 4 flavors of chocolate, our counterparts in the nation of the rising sun get to enjoy 40+ flavors. These diverse Kit-Kats have distinct and creative tastes. I purchased a sampler on amazon and recorded a few overly sugar influenced thoughts.

I didn’t know the flavors beyond the pictures on the packaging. I could have looked up the names, but ultimately determined to just guess them based on taste alone.

Wasabi- very interesting. Really tastes like wasabi

Orange something or other. Pretty tasty

Forgettable dark chocolate concoction that I must assume has almond as well.

Good- maybe vanilla ice cream?

Tea of some kind? Would have said green tea but I had that one before and the package didn’t look like that.

Not a clue. But it does taste nearly as purple as it looks.

Another dark one. This one tasted a bit more interesting than the other.

Cheated and found the real name, but I’ll call it spicy dark chocolate.

Not sure what the picture means, but it tastes like the alcoholic variety of egg nog.

Strawberry. Exquisite.

Pretty strait forward milk chocolate with apple “notes”.

Green tea. Delicious, but if these two are different, I can’t tell them apart.

Candy corn. Well done nestle, well done.

Strawberry doppelganger.

A unique tasting chocolate. Seems like it could be dark and milk chocolate together. The picture suggests a sweet red bean flavor. It somewhat hits the mark.

My tongue taste orange lemon and lime in that exact order. Good job!

Generically delicious treat.

 

…And that’s that. It’s a shame that we in the states have to make do with the rather bland Hershey variety of Kit-Kat’s rather than the awesome Nestle ones.
