Kit Kat New Released Onsen Steamed Bun Flavoured is Now Available in Japan

Kit Kat is a famous chocolate-covered wafer bar confection and it was introduced to Japan in 1973 when creator Rowntree’s made an agreement with Fujiya. In 2014, Kit Kat is top-selling confection in Japan. They offer over 300 limited edition, seasonal and regional Kit Kat types made in Japan. The flavors include matcha, miso soup, sakura, sweet potato, strawberry and cheese cake, sake, hojicha and other special flavors. However, some special local Kit Kat variations only available in Japan. If you wish to try other special local flavors, you have to visit Japan and grab your lovely Kit Kat flavors. 
In last autumn, Nestle Japan released Luxury Matcha flavor which was only sold at selected hot springs across Japan. Of course, the response was very good, thus they have created a second flavor called Kit Kat Mini Onsen Manju Flavor. A manju is sweet bun with red bean filling, a traditional treat and widely sold at hot spring spots in Japan. That’s why the new flavor called Onsen Manju (hot spring steamed buns).

This new Kit Kat is coated in light brown-colored chocolate and a mellow cream with red bean powder between the crunchy wafers. The chocolate melts quickly on your mouth and the cream is so soft.
