Nestle Kit Kats: Ramune, Ume Soda, Jujitsu Yasai



You don't want to know how many places Luna and I went to be able to get these three flavours. I received plenty of funny looks from asking "Do you have more of this? No? How about other flavours then?" Those sales person must have thought that I have never eaten/seen Kit Kats in my life hahaa~

Ramune/ Lemonade

Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Ramune
Price: ¥ 525
Contents: 14 pieces
Release date: 16.6.2009

This white chocolate based Kit Kate smells like bubble gum. The flavour resembles the smell, a strong bubble gum taste at first but that then gave way to a fizzy sour candy finish. Interesting but yummy nonetheless!


Light blue bars of summery goodness!

Ume Soda/ Plum Soda


Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Ume Soda
Price: ¥ 126
Contents: 18 g ×2
Release date: 13.7.2009

It smells like my favourite green apples sour candies. I usually hate sour stuff but for some reason I adore this although I scrunch my face after every bite.

Ume Soda has a slightly fizzy plum taste with a hint of sourness at the end. The tartness keeps it from being too sweet. Me likey!


Isn’t this light green wafer unique?

Jujitsu Yasai/ Vegetable Juice


Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Jujitsu Yasai
Price: ¥ 126
Contents: 18 g ×2
Release date: 24.8.2009

Of all the things in the world, I got my mitts on some vegetable juice flavoured Kit Kats. In my defence, I thought that it was Apple Vinegar (I know, this flavour doesn’t sound palatable either lol), but I like apple flavoured stuff!

Well, thankfully this flavour rocked! This wafer bar coated in white chocolate has a strong apple scent to it and it tasted of sweet vegetables. Nice!


This light orange coloured bar is an alternative way to get your vegetable fix hahaha

This flavour is a joint venture between juice maker Ito En and Nestlé Japan.

Additional information:
The ingredient lists boasts apple, carrot, grape, lemon, celery, capsicum, asparagus, chinese cabbage, kale, parsley, cabbage, herbs, radish, and spinach. The back of the box states that the vegetable powder is in the cream between the wafers, and the apple and carrot flavour is in the chocolate coating. (Source: vendinginternational-online.com/)

There are two other flavours that I didn't get which are Sports Drink and Whole Wheat. But I’m regretting it now... Sports Drink is made from white chocolate (my favourite)!! *sniff*

Have you tried any Japanese Kit Kats? What do you think of them?

*aly said...

I can't decide if you're
a) a food lover
b) a chocolate lover
or
c) a kit-kat lover? Or just all of the above?

I haven't tried any Japanese Kit Kits but you make me want to! =)

Music said...

Whoa, more tempting picts! :D I haven't tried any Japanese kit-kats.

To answer your question, I'm not S'porean nor M'sian. Somewhere nearby. *wink*

K said...

I think it's so interesting that you girls love those limited kit-kats! I have espresso, caramel pudding, and royal milk tea right now! They are going in some girl's christmas present for sure!

FriendzCentury said...

I spotted the Ume Soda flavoured KitKat today in the supermarket, and no doubt I purchased a pack. Haven't had the chance to eat them yet. But I assumed they were mango flavoured at first by just looking at the packaging LOL.

Jian said...

WOWWW! I've only ever had the normal kit kat, the white kit kat, and the kit kat chunkie!

I FEEL SO DEPRIVED! I've never tried Japanese kitkats, I really regret not buying some now D=

Anna said...

Those look - and sound - so weird, but in all honesty, I'd try them all! I really like the idea of your sour apple candies, too, always wondered what they taste like! Here we just have plain old milk chocolate kit kat and the orange chocolate flavoured one...I love to dip them into really hot tea :) xx

Marce said...

I feel so boring, I've only tried the original KitKats, LOL! I do love them, though. These ones look sort of weird, with their pastely colours =D

Jenn said...

Love the LE flavors, they all sound good or at least interesting. If I go to Japan, all I'm going to buy (beside make-up) is kit kats =)

xphoebelinax said...

i LOVEEEE kit kats! but we only have them in white chocolate, milk, dark and strawberry! nothing creative like the ones you have there! :D i'd love to try some just to see what they're like hehe

Ahleessa said...

You're so lucky to get all these limited Kit Kat products! All I have here is the normal chocolate one... lol~ :X

PinkyKathy said...

OMG OMG OMG
I love the packaging!!!!
and I wanna try them so bad!

LOLanne said...

awwww i wish north american stores carried these kit kats!! theres sooo much variety... anddd i love how the packaging somehow looks "cute" lol

<3

Zoe said...

I never tried Japanese kitkats before but really want to try them one day, I think I'll probably love the sour ones since I really love sour taste^^

Jennifer said...

Hi Blair! the JS brush from the Coffret is an LE :) the mixed compact blushes will have the usual brushes, fyi. But they're slowly replacing the old eye jellies with new ones ^^" I managed to get a jar of the old version before they're gone lol

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

caramel pudding was pretty nice! the mochi flavour was interesting, so was sweet potatoes xD enjoy ~~

Luna said...

lol.. I choked too.. but I got them at a pretty good price cuz my friend got them from DFS so they were less 7% tax. Plus my friend's an air crew member and they get 20% discount for Guerlain.. so I didn't end up choking as much.. lol..

Sarah said...

OMG coloured kit Kats! That is AWESOME! I wish we had those here!!!!!!!
Ohhh I got my necklace from Myer!!! It's such a pretty colour :) Thanks so much for your comment too you are so sweet!!!!

Dee said...

AHHH, I want those Kit Kats! Too bad it'll be so hard for me to find, lol.

Hmm, I'm not sure if the foundation is similar to Angelfit or not, but there was a foundation out before this and I think that its pretty similar since the name's almost the same. Its called Superstay Silky makeup. Is that available in your area?

Miss K. You said...

Wow, such yummy snacks! Now I know you love Kit Kats.. hehe too bad we don't have all those flavors in the US :\ but thanks sweetie! I love looking at your EOTD/FODS too!

Tammy said...

:o
my mouth is watering!!!!!!!!!! I love new flavors of candy haha

RicAdeMus said...

I feel cheated! I've only seen/tried milk chocolate and dark chocolate.

I read that you sometimes dream about problems and dream about solving them. That sounds like a great use of time. I would love the be able to think of solutions to problems while I sleep! =)

Kalmo said...

Oh man I'm drooling over this Kit Kats post, it's my favorite candy. I wish I could get my greedy hands on some of the cooler and more unique Japanese flavors. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Blair. :)

Blair said...

Nic Nic sweetheart,

How are you doing? I miss you loads!! =D

Those flavours that you mentioned sound yummy!
