There are 10 Japanese national holidays between September and February, and Nestle Japan delivers us plenty of new KitKat flavors to celebrate with! You may be familiar with the White Chocolate, Soy Sauce, and Green Tea flavors that are quite well known now, but allow us to introduce you to some of our top picks to keep you warm until the Spring!
First on our list of fall and winter limited edition KitKats is the Halloween-ready Apple Cinnamon flavor. If you or someone you know is an apple pie and Japanese chocolate lover, this is the best of both worlds! With a delectable combination of fruity and light spice, this one will surely be tough to share with friends!
Did someone say fall vibes? Because this next Japan exclusive KitKat flavor sure did! For those unfamiliar with Mont Blanc, it’s a famous autumn dessert with three distinctive characteristics: it’s sweet, it’s made with chestnut puree in the form of vermicelli served in a mount or ring, and it’s topped with whipped cream.
KitKat ingeniously combined a chestnut flavored chocolate with a rum cream wafer center to create this modern masterpiece! If this Japanese exclusive KitKat doesn’t take you to a cozy lodge in the Alps, I don’t know what will!
Keeping with the cozy motif, the next flavor on our journey is perfect for your next tea party! The plaid packaging itself looks warm and welcoming, but it’s the cream filled wafers covered in velvety milk tea flavored chocolate that’ll make you feel all fuzzy on the inside!
We know all about the Green Tea KitKat in Japan, but when it’s cold outside, you can’t forget about its milk tea cousin. If you’re looking to have a break, fall or winter style, you can’t go wrong with this choice!
Of all the specialty flavors we’ve mentioned so far, this one may be the hardest to try outside of Japan. This rare Japanese snack was available in our January 2022 box, but if you missed it, you can still pick it up over on JapanHaul!
This iteration of the breakable, shareable chocolate covered snack is sure to be popular with coffee lovers, as it’s made with a crispy cream filled wafer blanketed with a creamy milky coffee-flavored chocolate!
Nothing says “I love you” on Valentine’s Day more than roses and chocolate covered strawberries. Or is it strawberry cheesecake? No, you must give your special Valentine a bag of limited edition KitKat that has a strawberry and condensed milk wafer wrapped in pink milk chocolate! Now that sounds like the perfect gift for your special person!
No matter what you liked from our list of top Japanese KitKats from Fall-Winter 2021, we think the only wrong choice would be to NOT try at least one of them! Lucky for you, TokyoTreat will always be your source for these limited and special edition flavors that you won’t be able to find in the United States, Canada, or anywhere else for that matter!
