The chocolate bar Kit Kat is an iconic treat after being around for more than 80 years.The sweet is either two or four fingers, made of three layers of wafer, and is covered by an outer layer of chocolate with each finger able to snapped off individually.
Why is it so popular in Japan?
Kit Kat is produced by parent company Nestlé in 16 countries.
These are Brazil, Mexico, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Bulgaria and Algeria. In the US, Kit Kat is produced under license by The Hershey Company. In Japan, the name has a coincidental resemblance to phrase ‘Kitto Katsu’, which translates into good luck, or ‘surely win’. As a result the chocolate bar is often given or sent as a good luck charm around exam season, making them popular with young people.
What are the Japanese Kit Kat flavours?
Since 2000 Nestlé has introduced over 200 different flavours. The interesting flavours range from green tea, soy sauce, cherry blossom, sake, crème brulee and ginger ale.In 2010 the top-selling flavour was soy sauce.
