I’m something of a fiend when it comes to special Kit Kat flavors, to the extend that there was no way I was going to miss the Kit Kat Chocolatory in Tokyo when I was there last in 2014. When I heard they opened another location in Melbourne, Australia, back in October, I knew I had to make the pilgrimage! Luckily, I had the perfect excuse when I was down for an academic conference earlier this month. Read on for a full report!
For the first Apricotsushi Samples of 2016, I’m trying a flavor of sweets I’ve never had before… Sweet potato! Unfortunately I originally recorded this as a Christmas special (complete with festive outfit!), but a dead camera battery meant I didn’t actually end up recording as much footage as I thought I had. Needless to say, I had to do it over. But I’m not complaining – that just meant I got to try them all again!
I will say that after trying a few more of the Kit Kats and comparing them with the original pudding bakeable Kit Kats, I can make out the more “earthy” flavor of the sweet potato. It’s still very subtle, but I think I like the fact they’re not as sweet as pudding ones. If you want to try sweet potato Kit Kats for yourself, you can purchase a bag at Jlist!
I have a lot more candy where this came from, so expect many more episodes of Apricotsushi Samples in the upcoming months!
