As you’re likely aware, there are some unusual Kit Kat flavors out there. From baked potato to soy bean to wasabi to fruit parfait, you can get just about anything you want.

Here’s one that might throw you: Nestle Japan has released cough drop-flavored Kit Kats, perhaps their oddest iteration yet.

Peppered with real lozenge powder and featuring a famous soccer commentator, these medicine-inspired candies are sure to put that extra pep in your step, no matter how bad your sore throat may be, notes Rocket News 24.

“There’s a battle there that most definitely can’t be lost” the enthusiastic packaging reads, which makes a lot more sense in Japan, where Kit Kat is pronounced similar to “Kitto Katsu,” a phrase that translates to “you will surely win.”

The man on the packaging, Yasutaro Matsuki, is a former national soccer player and manager known for his bright, colorful commentating, saying things like the words on the Kit Kat box: “It’s one more point! Another point!!” 

The candy is available in Japanese convenience stores and the like starting August 21 but is a limited edition treat that will last through September 10 in conjunction with the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Asian finals. They will cost around $1.28, so if you’re heading to Japan this summer, you might want to check them out for novelty’s sake.

Kit Kats may be popular in the U.S., but they are a downright phenomenon in Japan and are one of the top-selling chocolates in the nation, notes Telegraph. More than 300 unique flavors have been introduced since the brand first launched there in 1973, and you can even visit Kit Kat’s regional flagship store, where you can pick up all sorts of wild wafer creations.
