Halloween is a sweet snack lovers dream in the US and it takes place at the end of this month! So we decided to start off October with a Halloween treat. Our international snack blog has toured around the world in search of some exciting and unusual snacks and no country has excited us more so than Japan. We are back in Japan tonight and we are sampling the Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat.
Japanese Kit Kats are like no other. They offer a wide variety of seasonal and limited production flavors. We are hoping to try every flavor in production and offer Japanese Kit Kats for sale in the US and worldwide when we launch our international snack store. So far we have tried Kit Kat Blueberry Cheesecake, Kit Kat Brown Sugar, and the Black Kit Kat known in Japan as Otona no Amasa. Our special Halloween themed Kit Kat for this review is the Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat.
We are sampling a Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat that features Halloween themed colors as well as a ghost, jack-o-lantern, and a witch. This rare Kit Kat flavor also comes with a cute Devil to stay true to the Halloween theme. Although we have called this Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat we have also seen it referred to as the Pumpkin Vanilla Kit Kat. Nestle also produced a Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor, but we are sure this is not it. Being we are not fluent in Japanese we went with the flavor that seemed most acknowledged online. Now on to the snack review.
Our most previous review of a Japanese Kit Kat was the Blueberry Cheesecake Flavor, something we are over the top about and truly love. After sampling that snack we were unsure if we’d ever be able to enjoy another Kit Kat to that level. Guess what? We were wrong! The Japanese Kit Kat Pumpkin Pudding Flavor is amazing, and most of our testers don’t even care for Pumpkins. We have no idea why these delicious flavors are not offered in the US and we hope it stays that way (so we can make money). The chocolate is smooth and creamy; the wafer is like all Kit Kats, crunchy and firm. The filling and flavor between the wafers though is what truly sets it off. The Pumpkin is subtle and accented by a hint of cinnamon. The pudding, well it could be Pumpkin Vanilla because most basic pudding is vanilla to begin with, but it compliments the snack nicely.
Will World of Snacks offer the Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat from Japan when we launch our international snack store at the end of the year? We definitely hope so! Now that we are getting closer to our launch date we are firming up our deals with our suppliers. We are hoping to offer every single flavor of Kit Kat from Japan that we can get our hands on. If you’d like to be notified when our online foreign snack store launches be sure to leave your details to the right or follow us on Facebook!
