I'm really late on the Japanese Kitkat craze, but I'm just so glad that these are readily available now in one of our local chocolate stores. Online shops tend to jack up prices unreasonably, so I was never able to convince myself to buy some earlier. I'm really stingy, but I also can't say that I wasn't tempted to make a hasty purchase before I found these here.
Anyway, the Kitkat boxes are priced at P145 each in Bloomingdale's, Mindpro. I've seen some people sell them at P200 and above, so I guess I didn't think twice about buying them. It took so much effort to remove the thought of being able to buy bigger chocolate bars with the money though.
The boxes themselves are pretty. It hurt me a little when I decided it was time to open them. I have a thing for pretty packaging, you see. As expected, each box comes with three individually wrapped Kitkats. They're smaller than the regular ones, so I died inside at this discovery.
The strawberry variant, in my opinion, can easily be the favorite for most people if you pit the two flavors against each other. I mean, who doesn't like strawberry, right? I ate it so fast that I didn't even think of taking a photo of it anymore. Haha!
I was more interested in the green tea variant, mostly because this is pretty uncommon compared to strawberry. A lot of people have been raving about it too, so I just had to try it.
My first bite immediately made me think of sipping tea. As my brother puts it, it's a bit weird at first, but the aftertaste it leaves you is good. It actually reminded me of biting into vanilla wafers. The catch, I guess, is that they are covered in green tea flavored coating.
Of course, the taste didn't blow me away so much to the point that I'd shell out that much money again for a box. I think I'll stick to the regular Kitkat. They were both worth trying though.
