Introduction to Japan KitKat flavors

Like if this Guide is helpful

Japan is a major market for KitKat. In fact, it’s one of the top three markets worldwide for the crispy wafer bar, which has been sold in this country since 1973. 
While most of the KitKats sold in Japan are standard milk chocolate, you can find other flavors like raspberry, pudding, and strawberry cheesecake that aren’t sold in other countries. Some flavors are associated with and sold only in a particular region of Japan for example, there is a special matcha green tea KitKat tied to Kyoto and a custard-like Kobe pudding variety available in Kobe. 

In this guide I am going to list currently available Kit Kat flavors in Japan other than regular milk chocolate in 2014. While Nestle will keep releasing new flavors, I will try my best to update the list periodically.  

Regular flavor

These products are available all year and can be found at almost all supermarket and convenience store nationwide.
