Sake it to me.

In case you didn’t know, Japan loves them some KitKat bars. Some attribute the success to the fact that the word KitKat sounds similar to ‘kitto katsu’, which in Japanese means ‘you will surely win.’

Just to keep up with demand, Nestlé has created a huge variety of KitKats flavors far exceeding the American selection –such as Wasabi, Purple Sweet Potato, Strawberry, Pear, European Cheese, Edamame, Bean Cake, Cinnamon Cookie, Matcha-Green Tea, and, believe it or not, more.

Starting February 1st Nestlé will launch a new KitKat called NariNari –which the company describes as “chocolate with the mellow body and smooth aftertaste of sake.”


 

That’s right. Sake, as in the rice wine that tastes great with sushi.

The new line will be made with sake powder which is kneaded into chocolate-encased wafers. According to Rocket News 24, they will come in three-pack boxes for 150 yen (US$1.24) at convenience stores, while the specially designed nine-piece box will be available for 700 yen from souvenir stores around the country.
