World of Snacks was created to explore cultures through food. As a child traveling throughout Europe and North American I personally encountered unique treats (and experiences) that I now want to share with my family. In addition to the snacks I previously discovered, our company now seeks out all of the best cookies, cakes, chocolates, chips, gums, and all types of snack foods from around the world. Since we began our exploration of snacks just over a year ago no country has intrigued us more than Japan, and no other snack items has us more excited than Japanese Kit Kats.
Our international snack blog has reviewed some very delicious Kit Kats out of Japan with my personal favorites being the Blueberry Cheesecake Kit Kat and the Vanilla Ice Cream Kit Kat. Today the snack under review is the Hazelnut Kit Kat, not to be confused with British Hazelnut Cream Kit Kat. Let’s take a closer look.
The Japanese Hazelnut Kit Kat Comes in a brownish red package with a gold trim. The images hosted on the wrapper are a wireframe globe, some melted and milky chocolate, and two small hazelnuts. The classic Nestle Kit Kat logo is in the center. For our American followers, Nestle produced the Kit Kat to the rest of the world; we are the only country to have a Hershey Kit Kat. Of course the wrapper also has some Japanese Charters and the world Hazelnut across the bottom. Now on to the taste test of the Hazelnut Kit Kat from Japan!
Our sample group today consisted of 6 adults, one female and five males all aged between 25-35. Unanimously all testers truly enjoyed this snack. So what does it taste like? Well, simply put it tastes like an improved version on the classic Kit Kat. The hazelnut is very subtle, almost hard to distinguish, but that is OK. It compliments the snack nicely and gives the Kit Kat a rich and creamy presentation. None of the tasters were particularly fond of hazelnut flavoring but all loved the Hazelnut Kit Kat from Japan and asked for more!
Will World of Snacks offer the Japanese Hazelnut Kit Kat in our international snack store? For sure! We are excited to offer all the foreign flavors of Kit Kats we can get our hands on. Later this year we will expand our offerings to include snacks from Japan. Each month this year we will add a new country to our store. Being we are still in the first month, we currently only have British Snacks for sale online. Follow along as we grow and leave your details to the right to stay updated on our progress. Keep on snacking world!
