The name "Kit Kat" is similar to the Japanese phrase "kitto katsu" which is a good luck phrase roughly meaning "I hope you win." Because of this, Kit Kats are especially popular as a gift given to a student before an test at school. Hmmm... eating Kit Kats for good luck? I think I could do that :)
I found two different flavors of green tea Kit Kats: Uji Matcha and Sakura Matcha The Uji Matcha (on the left in the photo) is my favorite. It tastes like a Starbuck's green tea soy latte in a candy bar form!
Wasabi Kit Kats ~ they have a very weak wasabi flavor.
Strawberry Hazelnut Kit Kats ~ they were extremely sweet
I strolled through a grocery store while in Japan and bought some Japanese chocolate and treats and also found green tea noodles. Green tea noodles are available here in Korea but I wanted to try the Japanese version. Turns out that they are thicker and less sticky than the Korean noodles that I've tried. Green tea noodles do actually have a slight green tea taste and they're green! How fun is that?
Another great item that I saw in many places is Japanese Washi Tape. This is a thin, semi-transparent, printed masking tape that is perfect for crafts, scrapbooking, homemade cards, etc. You can buy it in online stores such as cutetape.com. It's so fun and inexpensive that I found it hard to limit myself to just a few packs.
