This has to be the most unusual Kit Kat flavor yet.

According to NariNari, the country is getting sake Kit Kats starting February 1. There is sake powder between the chocolate and the wafers, giving the Kit Kats a delicate sake flavor.

NariNari explains that the taste sensation will mix the sweetness of chocolate with the aftertaste of sake. I dunno, that might work!

The label warns that these Kit Kats contain 0.8 percent alcohol, so you should not give these Kit Kats to children or people who are sensitive to alcohol.

There’s also a bottle shaped package, which comes with nine mini Kit Kats, but, sadly, not nine bottles of sake.

“This has to be the most unusual Kit Kat flavor yet.”

Apparently the author doesn’t spend too much time studying Kit Kat flavors that come from Japan. Sake, or more specifically, the leftover sake lees (sake kasu) is often used in desserts in Japan. So the flavor isn’t all that strange anyway (https://jbox.com/snk020)

But Japan has come out with chestnut, banana, green tea (of course), and even “Blueberry Fromage” (I guess it’s like a blueberry cheesecake?) and red wine Kit Kats (http://japanesekat.com/archive/kitkat…)
