If you are Japanese, I will buy Kit-Kat from you.

Apparently, people like to eat.

If you are Japanese, I will buy Kit-Kat from you.

Postby quintopia » Tue Sep 14, 2010 12:22 am UTC

I am looking for someone in Japan to put together a variety pack of all 19 flavors of kit-kat, thermally protect them from melting, and ship them to me. I will pay the full cost of the candy, packaging, and shipping, plus a little extra for the trouble. Alternately, I can ship you back something that is only available here (you name it).

  1. Be in Japan
  2. Buy Kit-Kat
  3. Ship Kit-Kat
  4. ???
  5. Profit!

Don't bother with the wasabi ones. Apparently they aren't very good.
Just FYI, the guy isn't avatar isn't me. But he seems pretty cool.

Several of the stranger kit-kat flavours are available in Toronto (I've seen Ramune, Chestnut, Green tea, apple, strawberry and several others over the years)--I can't guarantee any or all would be on sale at any given time here however.

I'll try anything once. I'm especially interested in soy sauce flavor.

Soy sauce and Wasabi kit kats? Why have I not heard of these before? I need to look into this.

Apparently the wasabi one is very sweet, cloying almost to mask the wasabiness of it all.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were all cloyingly sweet. I've only had the Milk Tea flavor because that was all that was available. It was good, but man, I needed a beverage afterward

Is this what japanese tastes are really like? I would have expected it to be blander

I really need to start a business of acquiring Asian versions of well known western foods and selling them to people here.

Mostly so I can have an excuse to buy 10,000 pounds worth of Oreo Wafer Cookies.

you know they don't taste much like wasabi. it was like white chocolate, and at first I thought it was green tea, but then there was some kick to it... not bad at all.
uhhhh fuck.
