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.
