Banana Kit Kat

One of my students went back to Japan to take part in a festival to celebrate adulthood.  It is a wonderful event with beautiful kimono.  I saw it a couple of times in Japan and always thought it was spectacular–at least from a fashion point of view.

As for me, she was kind enough to bring some snacks back for me. I was expecting the Tirol chocolate which I love, but instead was given a Banana Kit Kat, Tokyo Banana, and another coffee flavoured sponge treat which I dispatched too quickly to get the name of.


While I thought the two spongy ones would be quite interesting, it was the Banana Kit Kat which stole the show. After my experience with Green Tea Kit Kats, I expected the bar to be yellow.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, it was not.  It didn’t have the exact easy break sides I have come to associate with a Kit Kat, but it wasn’t exactly hard to split.

It won’t replace Green Tea Kit Kat as my favourite, but I will definitely keep a lookout for it whenever I am in Japan again.

    Oh man why can’t we have those here??? And that cute thing that has a kitty face on it. Japan is just too cute.

      I have heard that the top ten chocolate bars have not changed in the last 30 years. They tried a few flavors in these bars, but did not realize greater profits– of course, very little marketing was done.
      And yes, Japan understands cute.

    Green Tea Kit Kat’s my favourite too!

  3. Yum! Wish we could get these here, I’m still waiting to try a Japanese Kit Kat flavour.

    Ah, one of the reasons why I’d love to visit Japan is the variety of popular sweets and snacks in unusual flavours. Meanwhile, my poor country barely gets the regular ones. -.-
