Your Ultimate List of Kit Kat Flavors in Japan & Where to Find Them

If you follow me on instagram, occasionally I post up photos from a kit kat exchange we have going between two of my gfs and I where we try random new japanese kit kat flavors. We take turns visiting Japan and bringing them back home to share.

We’ve been collecting them since 2012, but there are so many more to try!

Japanese Kit Kat Flavors Explained

There are flavors suitable for adults who have different taste buds than children and different flavors for men than women. I guess the Japanese know what they are doing. They did invent “umami,” which is now the 5th taste. Also, according to Dr. Oz – Women have more taste buds than men, which makes women more sensitive to flavors. Good to know. We tasted the adult sweetness kit kat, and we found it less sweet and more tart than the regular strawberry.

Our Favorites and Least Favorites

Shinshu Apple was collectively our least favorite. All the strawberry ones are winners and the wasabi was surprisingly subtle and enjoyable.

I’m always thankful to find these treats in the mail. I love snail mail, and it’s most likely my ultimate love language. Even though the three of us live in different cities (Sophia in Boston, Hsiao in San Francisco, and me in LA), it helps us stay connected. Whenever we are on the hunt for new flavors, we always keep the others in mind. 

I know it’s probably impossible because some flavors are discontinued, but we hope to one day try every flavor we can get our hands on. :) I’m also trying to get everyone else hooked on crazy flavored Kit Kats too. 

If you haven’t yet, you should give them a try. If you come across some new ones, please let me know!

  1. Oh wow, there are so many different flavors! I’ve never seen that many at my store, but then again I haven’t really looked haha. I was given grape and I think it was strawberry and those were pretty good.

    1. esther julee

      There are!! :) But I found that when I was looking around while visiting Japan.. it was hard to find the diff flavors.. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places, but I finally found them at the airport! Let me know what you find! :)

    2. esther julee

      I don’t think I’ve tried grape.. all I know is there are TONS of diff strawberry flavors with strawberries in diff regions of Japan.. some are for kids, some are for adults, some are for male or female.. and they actually all taste different!

    When I was living in Poland, I used to eat a lot of kit kat bars. My favourite flavour was the white chocolate, but there is a great variety of them in Japan. I didn’t even know there were such flavors as almond out there. Must be yummy!

    1. esther julee

      I didn’t know about them either until my friend introduced them to me! :) There are definitely some yummy ones in there… and then ones that are horribly bad. haha

  3. I can’t believe there are so many flavors of kit-kat! this is so cool! I wonder if I’d actually like anything but the original.

    1. esther julee
