Katie's Kit Kat Kount thru January 2010

Below is the list of flavors I've collected since finding my first Kit Kat in Japan, Matcha, in May 2008. I take pictures [on the kitchen counter] of each flavor individually, but in October I took a picture of them all on my kitchen table. The ones I've gotten between then and now won't be included in the photos below, but they are included on the list. I have a Shutterfly album of all the individual flavors and you can click here to see them. Click the pictures below to enlarge them.

This is amazing. Why do you collect them and what do they taste like? Do you try them all?

I wish they would come up with those here in the Netherlands. I am always up to try new things. I have seen a few but they weren't really "different". I have had orange, cinnamon and cappuccino. All were just temporary imports at one favourite store of mine.
A collection like that would never survive long in my house!

Adam Jones said...

Nice! I like your collection. Amazing you have collected this many kinds of KIT KATS..

Wow, just wow. How many Kit Kats are there? Not how many you have, but how many exist? I wonder why they don't make different flavors like this in the U.S., they'd make so much money! Do you really have all of those flavors in your house? Can I come over to visit and try some? Haha just kidding!

Heather said...

That's incredible!! You're really doing awesome stuff in Japan. Makes me want to go back!

april said...

thats awesome!

lol, when we were in akihabara, there was this 6 story sex store with girls costumes in all the windows, well they have kit kat condoms there.. theyre called kit sack and look like a starwberry flavor or something. lol, well we bought some as a suvioner. that would be funny if you added them to your collection as well, just to have! :)

Katie said...

Why do I collect them? I guess because it's something different. I don't try them all because I don't like chocolate! I've tried just about all of the white chocolate ones, but a handful of chocolate ones. The Raspberry & Passion Fruit were good...very strong fruit taste and not so much chocolate.

Candee, I've read that England has a few different flavors. The flavors you tried, were they imported from Japan? I buy two of each flavor, one for me to smell and Bob and the girls to eat, and the other for my collection. All the ones photographed are unopened! They just aren't tempting to me.

Thanks Adam :)

I'm not sure how many there are in total. They have flavors come out every week or two, sometimes three. Some of the flavors that come out are repeats and some aren't. I've gotten all of them since we arrived in 2008, but I know there are flavors that came out before then that haven't be re-released.

Heather, I don't want to leave!

April, I have seen them at Don Don Quixote and bought a box. I have a picture but didn't put it in the Shutterfly album, and because of that I forgot to add it to my list. Thanks for the reminder! I'm glad you got them, I think it's hilarious!

Candee said...

Oh I can't remember where they came from. I got them before I knew better to see if they are from Japan ;-) It wouldn't surprise me if they were though - they often have Mentos from Japan.
I plan to go to England soon - I will have to keep my eyes open.

I often go to Asian stores to find "different" things but most of the Asian stores here are Indonesian. I have been on a mad search for those cute egg forms but with out any luck. I might have to order them on e-bay.

This is fascinating.
I’d been taught that left-aligned labels are preferred, to support the prototypical F-shaped eye-tracking heatmap of web browsing. The idea is that it supports easy vertical scanning.

I love the variety of flavors, even if some aren't that great. I really like(d?) the Ramune one. Such an appetizing shade of blue, too.

ottawan guy said...

Ooh I love kit kat too. :)

Exquisite, indeed. I appreciate your article as well as the appearance. I can not wait to test it out in the test web log. Your theme is incredibly productive it’s hard to maintain up with an individual. Clean and easy to read. Very attractive blog. Great! ". I bought some of these at PIJ! So cute! I’m going to buy more. I think there is still other merchandise. I have a great product here.
Can wait to have this!! http://bit.ly/rilakkumastrawberry
