Kit-Kat Flavors (Hokkaido Edition)

Filed under: Desserts, Domestic, Food, Hokkaido, Kit Kat Flavors, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 8:33 am

If there’s one thing Japanese people like, it’s limited edition products (限定商品), whether limited by region where it’s sold or time period it’s sold during. So, when Japanese people visit a certain region, they like to bring back limited edition products from that region as souvenirs. In Hokkaido, I even saw normal convenience stores providing lists of which products are limited to Hokkaido or having special limited edition products sections in their store.

Included in the limited edition Hokkaido products are Hokkaido only Kit-Kat flavors! Here they are:

All the Hokkaido flavors lined up together. They dont sell these in individual packs, only in these souvenir packs.

  1. As if kit kats didn’t have enough corn (syrup) in them already…. -_-;

  2. Very true. Although I don’t think corn syrup is overall as popular a random ingredient to throw into processed foods here. Instead, there’s plenty of gelatin made form pork and lard and other such ingredients that make it very hard for people who keep halal or kosher to find food they can eat in Japan.

  6. Thank you for making me drool on my keyboard!!! Awesome collection! And just to ask… How much do they usually sell for? Say, the more regular ones (not the limited edition) And are the prices different if you buy them in the supermarket vs. conbini? 🙂 Thanks so much!
