After we’ve begged and begged, five incredible Asian inspired flavours have just launched in Australia.
Butter, Sake, Uji Matcha, Strawberry & Maple, Hokkaido Melon…they sound like ingredients at a luxury restaurant, but KitKat have just imported these five new taste sensations from Japan as part of their ‘Created in Japan’ range. They won’t be available at your local servo though – exclusive to the KitKat Chocalatory shop in Melbourne, these products can be bought in-store or online for pickup only The Daily Mail reports.
Result Of A Growing Demand
As if the ever reliable KitKat could get any better, the new range responds to a growing demand for new and interesting flavours.
Head Chocolatier Connie Yuen said. “We know that Australia has a love affair with Asian cuisine, so we explored the extensive Japanese range and chose to import the five most iconic flavours.”
Available for $8 per 69g bar, the company anticipates Butter to be the biggest success, closely followed by Sake which contains a small amount of the popular rice wine making it one for the adults!
Hard Decision To Make
Choosing just five flavours for the range provided a challenge.
“It was a hard decision to make – there are over 300 unique creations available in Japan – but we landed upon delicious combinations that we believe will excite Aussie chocolate lovers,” Connie said.
Available right up until Christmas, there is talk of new flavours being added to the range in the future.
“Keep your eyes peeled for what’s next because we are always innovating and will have lots more exciting flavour combinations launching soon,” she said.
As if we needed another excuse to buy chocolate at Christmas, or any time of the year for that matter! The humble KitKat has been an enduring household favourite though, so we’re sure this incredible range will be a total hit.
