KitKat Japan reveals this year’s autumn offerings

Spring, exam season, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, you name it, KitKat Japan have specially flavored chocolate bars for every occasion.

They’ve released over 350 types of KitKat so far, and have become famous worldwide for their regional and seasonal specialty bars, only available in Japan.

In preparation for the coming autumn months, they’ve revealed this year’s hearty offerings, inspired by some of Japan’s favorite fall treats.

They will go on sale from Aug 19 which seems a bit early for an autumn product, but perhaps buying sweet potato chocolate bars is a form of escapism for people suffering through the summer heat.

The sweet potato KitKats' subtle potato-y flavor will be found in both the white chocolate which coats the whole bar, and between the wafers. They will be sold in packs of 11 mini KitKats for 500 yen.

The other flavor making up the seasonal duo is chestnut which follows the same pattern as the sweet potato one, covered in white chocolate, but this time with a mild sweet chestnut taste. They will be available in packs of 12 for 500 yen, but there will also be convenience store exclusive sets of 3 for 120 yen.

If you're intrigued about the wonderful and strange world of Japanese KitKats, check out our guide to some of the coolest flavours to date!

Personally I love these special Kit-Kat flavourings. I just finished a Hokkaido Melon & Mascarpone pack that was excellent. The article states that these are only available in Japan, but we can get some of them here in Melbourne at the Kit-Kat Chocolatory store. It's also possible to create your own Kit-Kat, within reason of course.

Yeah, they're a bit pricy. So?

Bring back the azuki and make it a permanent flavor!
