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.

I wanted to take a moment to express how happy my company and I am with Kelci’s and the services of CPA. Earlier this year I was very frustrated. I had engaged my regular recruiter in seeking an engineer with a background in agriculture. (Not an easy task.) After 3 months he had not been successful. I found Kelci on LinkedIn and contacted her. The first thing she insisted on was coming here and seeing my plant. (She was the first recruiter I have worked with who did this.) She wanted to know what the working environment was like here. From there she began her search and within 6 weeks I had my engineer with a background in agriculture. I then turned to her this fall to assist in finding me a maintenance supervisor. She provided me with a number of outstanding candidates and we have just been notified that our number one candidate has accepted our offer.
Kelci is now my “go to recruiter.”
