Japan is one of the best places to find these delicious treats, with over 300 different varieties of the candy to try out, from green tea to cherry blossom to sushi. I’m partial to the white chocolate and strawberry flavors myself, but there are so many different kinds of Kit Kats that it’s hard to think of a favorite. That’s why it’s such great news that Nestle, the manufacturer of Kit Kat, is creating the first Japanese factory in nearly 30 years to make sure everyone gets a break of their favorite Kit Kat bar.Japan is essentially a mecca for the delicious candies, where boutiques sell special flavors for a limited time, and it’s the top-selling brand of chocolate in the entire country. Sales even went up by 50% over the last seven years, which is pretty crazy when you think about just how many Kit Kats had to have been sold for that to happen. So, of course, Nestle is going to make sure this popular treat is available in droves.

There’s also the fact that the name of the candy sounds a little like “kito kato,” a popular phrase that means “surely win,” and is likely given as good luck candy. It’s probably also because the things are so darn good you can’t help but want some for your own. Whatever the case may be, it’s about to get a whole lot easier to find the Kit Kat flavor that you love and a lot bigger supply of it. If you’ve got the chance, make sure you try out the green tea flavor. It’s unexpectedly delicious. Stay on targetlast_img read more
