Would You Eat These Sushi-Inspired Kit Kats? (Photos)
By Cooking Panda
There are some pairings that work so well together, we’re sure the first person who thought to combine them knew they’d come up with an instant classic.
We’re talking the fusing of peanut butter with jelly; dipping cookies into milk; cheese and macaroni; coffee dunked into donuts; pita bread dipped in hummus.
But we’re struggling to think of how anybody could think that sushi and Kit Kat bars combining forces would be a good idea.
However, we’re not the boss of Kit Kat Japan, so its decision to launch a limited-edition range of sushi-flavored bars is beyond our control.
If you’re interested in trying out one of these new concoctions, you’ll have your pick between tuna, sea urchin and egg sushi-flavored Kit Kats at your disposal.
Actually, maybe. It turns out the Kit Kats in question aren’t actually infused with, like, essence of tuna, or dusted with any actual fish parts at all.
Rather, the new Kit Kats are inspired rather aesthetically by the sea.
For example, the tuna Kit Kat? It’s nothing but a raspberry Kit Kat placed upon some decadent-sounding white chocolate puffed rice.
Next comes the egg variety, which is really pumpkin pudding flavored (yes!) also atop some white chocolate-covered rice.
Last but not least is the sea urchin flavor, which actually uses Hokkaido melon and mascarpone cheese-flavored Kit Kats.
The Kit Kats can be purchased, per Kotaku, at about $26 per set at the Ginza shop in Tokyo between Feb. 2 and Feb. 4, 2017.
They are limited edition, though, so if you’re in Tokyo, get there early, because these novelties will probably fly off the shelves!
