Did you know? Wasabi KitKat Bars

I try to tune into City Paper's Meal ticket as often as possible...but I guess I missed their post last month on wacky (and by wacky I mean incredible) Kit Kat bars. A Japanese boy was trying to help me fix my computer and put a wasabi KitKat in my hands. I had no idea. I didn't know if it was for me- so I snuck it in Lance Romance's bag as a treat. I think I confused him- because it ended up back home and I got to partake.  I didn't know what to expect.

What it was-the coating was similar to white chocolate with a hint of wasabi. Wasabi is usually a full force thing that I can't handle resting along side some sushi and pickled ginger. This was so curious.  I already thought about pairing a Hitachino Nest Ginger beer with it.   Unfortunately they aren't available in the States.


  1. You can acquire various Japanese Kit Kat flavors on (shipping options start at ~$30 though). Stock varies month-to-month & I have not seen the wasabi flavor available yet.

  2. Have a Japanese hookup? I have one left...I would share.
