and Cherry Creme between the wafers.
An explanatory sign was set up by these candy-filled gift boxes.
In Japanese, "Kit Kat" sounds similar to "Kitto Katsutoo!" which means "you're sure to win'' in the Kyushu dialect. Because of this, Kit Kat chocolate is commonly used as a good-luck charm for students taking school entrance examinations. It is also familiarly known as an "omamori" (which means "lucky charm") all across Japan.
|Dear Gen, the answers are hidden inside the wrapper.|
A ton of flavors were available in Japan. I've been out of the U.S. long enough so that I'm not sure if some of the ones I thought were unique are offered in the Western Hemisphere as well.
- Milk Chocolate
- Sakura-Machha pictured above
- Cinnamon White Chocolate
- Cookies and Cream
- Strawberry White Chocolate
- Strawberry Cheesecake
- Almond Tofu Pudding (I'm pretty sure this one is Asia only.)
Good luck and Kitto Katsutoo kiddos!
