Remember Nestle Japan’s April Fool’s joke last year? They announced they were releasing seafood-flavored Kit Kats. Well, apparently the response to the joke was so overwhelming that the company was inspired to create Kit Kat sushi.
Of course, these sushi-shaped treats don’t actually taste like fish, so chocolate fans will still get their sweet fix while enjoying the novelty. They were launched on February 2 along with the opening of the latest Kit Kat Chocolatory store, which is based in Ginza and is the brand’s first stand-alone store.
There are three flavors available: the tuna Kit Kat, which features rice puffs coated in white chocolate, topped with raspberry flavored Kit Kat bars; the uni (sea urchin) Kit Kat, which combines Hokkaido melon and mascarpone cheese; and the tamago (egg) sushi Kit Kat, which has a pumpkin pudding flavor.
Now, how to make sure you get your hands on these limited edition chocs? Head to the new store before February 14 and spend ¥3,000 or more, and you’ll be given a free Kit Kat sushi set – but there are only a total of 500 sets being given away, and a limited number available each day. If you miss out on the sushi sets, don’t despair – there are plans to introduce a café where you can customize your very own Kit Kat chocolate using various toppings.
