KitKat Rilakkuma Ichigo Milk

Rilakkuma is a… hmm… bear character of some sort.  Beloved of little girls, presumably.  I dunno.  I’ve no desire to put any effort into researching it, or explaining it.  Please don’t explain it to me.

The KitKats are a creamy strawberry as the name suggests, but by Jove (I’m feeling very English this afternoon) they’re sweet.  And being an omiyage pack, there are a lot to get through.

KitKat Sparkling Strawberry

Well, the packet’s sparkly.  And the KitKat’s strawberry.

‘Nuff said.

KitKat Strawberry Cheesecake (Yokohama)

Another regional omiyage edition, this time from Yokohama – a very tasty strawberry cheesecake.

Fairly cheesy but more yoghurty, and a very delicate fruit flavour.

KitKat Tochiotome

All the way from Tochigi prefecture, Tochiotome is a special breed of strawberry.  They’re apparently far superior to common-or-garden strawberries, but I think you need to be a strawberry farmer to know the difference.

And to be able to tell the difference between strawberry KitKats… well that would be quite a feat.

Decidedly not bad.

KitKat Ajiwai Ichigo

So what does Christmas time mean to you?  To Nestlé, it apparently means strawberries.  Every year, without fail, they wheel out strawberry flavour, sometimes several together.  This year is no different of course.

If you remember strawberry Nesquik (of course you do), well that’s what it smells of, but the taste, really, is nothing special.

KitKat Cheesecake

Of the strawberry and blueberry varieties.  Smells of cheese, doesn’t much taste of cheesecake.  And it’s overly sweet white chocolate.

I’m never gonna get excited about a cheesecake KitKat until they bring back the Lemon.

KitKat Strawberry Petit

Yeah, we all like Strawberry, but the only thing different about this one is the box.  Really just for the completists, cos let’s face it, late November is considered Strawberry Time™ by some at Nestle Japan, so there’ll be a whole raft of Strawberry KitKats on the shelves soon, most likely.
