KitKat Sakura Maccha

Sakura, I’m sure you already know, is cherry blossom, and maccha is special powdered green tea. And I hate to be cynical, but seeing as Nestlé Japan are, I’ll play too. There’s such a thing as over-egging the cake.  Gilding … Continue reading

KitKat Uji Maccha

You’d’ve thought a good green tea KitKat would be the business, but it was a bad day for KitKats when we tested this one.  Last of a bad group on a boiling hot day, and I was jonesing for some … Continue reading

KitKat Tiramisu

The edition released in February must have been a success, because here’s a big bagful of Tiramisu KitKats. But like what came before, it’s… white chocolate. The perfect Tiramisu KitKat has been done already. And it was of course milk … Continue reading

KitKat Chocolatier

KitKat Chocolatier Maccha & Kinako KitKat Chocolatier Strawberry & Nuts Warning: TAKAGI may cause inflated claims and disappointment Yes, Patissier Takagi’s back, people, so it’s time to don your protective anti-marketing specs. These are “Premium-type KitKats for adults”, he says. … Continue reading
