A little over a week a go we posted a Kit Kat Sake Review and almost immediately we sold out of this unique flavor (not to worry - more are on the way). Never heard of Sake Flavored Kit Kats? That's because it's a new flavor only offered in Japan.
Currently we stock nearly 20 flavors of Kit Kats from Japan in our international snack store and we offer them for sale here in the US with international shipping available. We pride ourselves on our selection and really enjoy tracking down rare and exotic flavors. So when we found out there are even rarer Kit Kats then the crazy flavors we sell - we almost hit the roof with excitement!
We discovered a Kit Kat boutique in Japan, known as Chocolatory. Well, 3 Kit Kat boutiques to be exact. Over the years Nestle (they own Kit Kat) has offered hundreds of usual an innovative special edition flavors. They don't sell them anywhere other than Japan. Some of these Japanese Kit Kat flavors are regional, but for the most part they are available throughout the country. However, the Kit Kat Chocolatory offers flavors that can only be purchased at their boutique and no where else!
Well if you happen to own a store that specializes in hard to find snacks this is a big deal. That means these rare Kit Kats are nearly impossible to find without heading to the store and picking up some yourself. What makes it even harder is they only produce a limited number of bars each day, and when they sell out, you are out of luck.
So you probably scrolled ahead to see these two flavors we scored from the Chocolatory. That's right, we are reviewing the rarest Kit Kats in the world on our snack blog! Let's get on with our taste test of the special edition Butter Kit Kat and Chili & Passion Fruit Kit Kat.
Butter Kit Kat Review
Butter doesn't sound like a flavor that would enhance a chocolate bar. Sure it's an ingredient, but the main flavor? My younger brother used to sneak hands-full of butter when no one was looking. Other than him, I do not know anyone who likes butter by itself. So the idea of a butter Kit Kat doesn't sound appealing, but Nestle has yet to disappoint us with any of their Japanese Kit Kat flavors - so we are going in open minded. We are glad we did! This flavor is pretty amazing. The butter flavor is nearly non-existent. It's more of a heavy cream flavor. It's rich, it's decadent, and it's so good. This flavor is a result of a contest from the Tsuji Group culinary school in Japan. Great job guys!
Chili & Passion Fruit Kit Kat Review
Now spice is a more appealing flavor for us. Both my parents have Latin American roots and my partner is from an Asian country that thinks everything should be spicy! So needless to say, out of the two this is the rare Kit Kat we were looking forward to the most. So what do we think of it? The dark chocolate is the perfect right amount of bitter. The fruit is powerful, almost like a passion fruit jam. However the crisp wafer is a much better sensation than jam would be. What about the chili? Oh yeah, it's there and it comes in slowly with a long distinct burn. This flavors is unusual and epic all at the same time.
So there you have it. Ready to buy a plane ticket to Japan and check out a Chocolatory? We are and we will save you from needing a plane ticket. In the very near future we will offer limited quantities of these outrageously rare Kit Kats for sale in our international snack store. Until then check out some of the amazing flavors we currently offer. As always, keep on snacking world!
