KitKat Mango Purin

The makers seem to have started hedging their bets with recent new flavours.

Multibags’ contents are now often 50/50 – half are regular milk chocolate ordinary KitKat, the other half being the more outlandish flavour.

This is probably a good marketing ploy – I’d imagine consumers are less likely to want to buy a whole bag of a peculiar flavour if they think they might get stuck with handfuls of sweets they’re not going to eat.  But with half the bag being the pure, unadulterated original, the risk is instantly halved.  They’re evidently not all nutters at Nestlé Japan.

And after the dreadful summer that it’s been for KitKats, Mango Purin is not bad by comparison.

KitKat Custard Pudding

There was a time before プリン (custard pudding / creme caramel) flavoured KitKat.  And in that void, I longed for The Committee to get their backsides into gear and sort one out.  And then one day, they did.  And I thought… meh.

And this is more of the same, white (well, yellow) chocolate, so really sweet. If you must, I’d recommend buying the smaller bag.

KitKat Caramel Purin

I’m not sure there’s really any connection between caramel and Halloween, but someone at Nestle Japan seems convinced otherwise.  On top of that, these KitKats come with inspiring little messages like “Your dreams can come true” and other assorted tripe.  Any resemblance to actual Halloween would presumably be entirely unintentional.

Or Creme Caramel, as we call it where I’m from. I’ve been dreaming of this one for ages. You’d want a sweet tooth, and an unerring ability to inhale large quantities of プリン, but provided you have that, you’re in heaven.
