If we had to pick, hands down our favorite chocolates from around the world are the Japanese Kit Kats. Nearly every unique flavor we try has blown us a way. In fact, we've been trying to find a Kit Kat flavor from Japan that we don't like. So when we found the Matcha Green Tea and Azuki Bean Kit Kat, we hoped we had a winner. Can this possibly be the first Japanese Kit Kat that we don't like? Well, that's what we hope to find out tonight.
For a little while now we've sold a Green Tea Kit Kat as well as a Red Bean Kit Kat. We really like them both. In fact, we have a hard time keeping the Green Tea Kit Kats in stock. The literally sell out with in a mater of days! For some reason, Nestle Japan thought it would be a good idea to basically combine the two. In another turn of events, they decided to offer them in their Big Little Kit Kat collection. Basically, they are bite size Kit Kat Pieces that are dipped into chocolate, creating a Kit Kat ball of sorts. They pack big flavor, in little pieces. In this scenario, the Matcha Green Tea flavor is infused with white chocolate and the Azuki bean is layer between the Kit Kat wafer. Sounds good? Well for the first time ever, we hope it's not! Now on with the taste test.
Our testers tonight are among some of our most seasoned. For years now, they've been munching on the best (and worsts) snacks from around the world. We eagerly ripped open the bag and found 7 green Kit Kat balls. The smell from the package was very leafy. There is no mistaking the potent Matcha Green tea fragrance. First bite, almost all green tea. We actually didn't note the Azuki bean until the second and third bites. The chocolate is earthy with a hint of creaminess followed by a slight sweet sensation. When the bean flavor kicks in, you get a unique treat that is surprisingly pleasant and well rounded.
So, as you may have guessed. Our search for a Japanese Kit Kat that we don't like continues. We actually liked the Matcha Green Tea and Azuki Bean Kit Kat, and we think you will too.
