It's no secret, here at World of Snacks we absolutely love Japanese Kit Kats. In fact, we can't get enough. Not only are they among the first snacks to sell out on our website, we literally want to try every single flavor they offer. One unique flavor we have offered for quite some time now but haven't had the time to sit down and really enjoy is the Melon Mascarpone Kit Kat. There is no moment like the present, so let's review this imported treat.
So melon a flavor Kit Kat? Yup. It's not just any melon though. It's a particular melon that is from Hokkaido, Japan. From the packaging and the taste, we believe this mystery melon is none other than the cantaloupe. Which is great, we love cantaloupe! You know what else we love? Mascarpone cheese! If you haven't had it, this cheese is more like whipped cream than traditional cheese. Admittedly, we have not tried these two flavor together though. So how do they taste? We cannot tell you just yet.
For those who have followed our snack blog over the years, you know we look at the packaging pretty closely before we do the official taste test. Why? We love the packaging. Also, my personal background is marketing. But enough about me. Let's talk more about this Melon Mascarpone Kit Kat.
Where to start? Well, it comes in a bright green box containing 3 mini bars. For those in the United States, you'll notice the Kit Kat logo is preceded by a Nestle logo. That doesn't make sense here because Kit Kat is not a Nestle product, it's made by Hershey's! You may be surprised to hear that Kit Kat actually is a Nestle candy, in the states is only a licensing deal with Hershey, everywhere else it is indeed Nestle. The only other interesting quirk of the box is Hokkaido is shown. So if you are a geography nerd, you should really be excited. Chances are you are not and may not care about any of this. You just want to know how this Japanese Kit Kat tastes. You have waited long enough.
Melon Mascarpone Kit Kat is awesome. No really. The melon flavor is sweet and rich but somehow manages to remain subtle. The Mascarpone cheese rounds it out and really pairs well with the melon. It does not taste like anything else we've sampled, and it really excites us when we find something so unique.
If you are one of our thousands of customers and blog followers, you know we usually end with a determination if we will feature the snack under review in our store. If you were paying attention, you would know we already offer Melon Mascarpone Kit Kats for sale online. If you've read this far, you are too invested not to buy one. Order one mini bar or opt for the whole box. As always, keep on snacking world.
