Nestle Kit Kats: Annin Dofu, Miso, Shoyu, Zunda

Time for another one of my Nestlé Kit Kat chronicles! I’m reviewing some unusual flavours in this entry..

Annin Dofu/ Almond Tofu



Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Annin Dofu
Price: US$ 2.49
Contents: 12.3 g
Release date: 13.9.2010
Sales area: Kanto region

Japanese almond tofu has no tofu. It's basically a mixture of gelatin, water and milk (or cream). I can’t pinpoint the exact taste of this kit kat - it stirs up memories of cough syrup but this isn’t a completely fair comparison. It tastes a tad bit better than that!

I’ll have to pass if the real almond tofu tastes alike, tofu puddings are so much better comparatively!! (o ω O)


Miso



Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Miso
Price: US$ 2.49
Contents: 12.3 g
Release date: 13.9.2010
Sales area: Tokai/ Hokuriku region

The good part about this kit kat? It doesn’t taste like miso at all (^ ω ^)

The bad part? I have plenty of criticisms hahaha. It is very overwhelming due to the multitude of tastes! Sweet due to the presence of the white chocolate base, salty and it ends with a soy sauce aftertaste! *bleugh*


Shoyu/ Soy Sauce



Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Shoyu
Price: US$ 2.49
Contents: 12.3 g
Release date: 13.9.2010
Sales area: Kanto region

Pairing white chocolate with soy sauce is certainly unexpected! When I think about soy sauce, something sweet and light coloured will be the last thing to spring to my mind.

Fortunately it doesn’t taste of soy sauce at all - it tastes like any other sweet buttery treat. This flavour is a let-down. Don't get me wrong, it is acceptable taste-wise but there’s nothing out of the ordinary about it.


Zunda



Name: Nestlé Kit Kat Zunda
Price: US$ 2.49
Contents: 12.3 g
Release date: 13.9.2010
Sales area: Yamagata Prefecture

I wasn’t keen on the variants in this review except for Zunda. Some of you are probably freaked out by the concept of sweet edamame (soybean pods/ boiled green soybeans) but don’t worry, it’s delicious! In case you were wondering, zunda is a sweet mashed edamame paste that is used in a variety of desserts.

The white chocolate shell melds harmoniously with the edamame flavour. The resulting combination tastes slightly like red bean paste, but not as sweet. It’s light, refreshing and really interesting to eat!


My verdict:
#1 Zunda
#2 Shoyu
#3 Annin Dofu
#4 Miso

You can get these regional kit kats from napaJapan. They are so much harder to get than the regular flavoured ones!
