Treats from Japan

A couple weeks ago, Mad Queen stopped by and brought us some treats from Japan. A bag full of KitKats in a variety of very unusual flavors. Flavors that are not available here in the US.

The whole family had a great time sampling the different kinds. I was surprised at how true the flavors were. The sweet potato KitKat really tasted like sweet potato. Some other unique flavors were wasabi, flan, ginger ale, and mango pudding. The boys and I passed on the meat pocket one and let Keith have that one to himself. I shared the royal milk tea and the green tea KitKats with my tea-mate, Steph, and was so impressed by how much they really tasted like tea!

Thanks, Mad Queen!

I can't wait to try mine. Thank you for the samples! We've just had the warm toffee pudding, and yummmm! Thank you, again, for the time yesterday. (I just blogged about it.)

Awesome! So glad you enjoyed that crazy treat... I knew you would appreciate them :). What is funny is that while we have collected them for a few months, we hardly tried any of them... happy to hear they were not too horrible!

Thanks for the treats, mad queen; they were fun. The meat pocket one tasted a lot like regular Kit Kats, which isn't too surprising. Protein filled wafers dipped in chocolate all have a lot in common, regardless of whether the protein source is peanut butter, chicken, or whatever mystery meat was used for these treats.
