Limited Edition Passionfruit Kit Kat (Japan)

I couldn't resist ordering these Passionfruit Kit Kats from Oyatsu Cafe. They're a new edition for Summer 2013 and are very similar in packaging, style and size, to the Matcha Green Tea Kit Kat that I reviewed recently here.

The vibrantly coloured package comes with 12 mini Kit Kat inside. They are all covered in a passionfruit flavoured white chocolate, with extra layers of passionfruit cream between the wafers. The scent is extremely fruity and creamy.

I was quite surprised to find that the chocolate has a slightly gritty texture to it, I was expecting it to much smoother. The flavour is not just a vague "tropical" fruitiness but is most definitely a passionfruit flavour. It's slightly tart and strong, and very different to a sweeter mango or pineapple. For me, the milkiness of the white chocolate and the passionfruit flavour seemed slightly at odds with each other. A darker chocolate or milk chocolate may have worked better, as I think a stronger cocoa taste would help to balance the flavours. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy the Passionfruit Kit Kat but it was more of a novelty flavour than a delicious one.

  1. Passionfruit!! Ooooh. I must try this one!! ^_^

    1. It's really is such an interesting flavour! I wish Kit Kat in the UK were so adventurous with their varieties.

  2. This looks ace! Years ago there was a Japanese dark chocolate Kitkat with passionfruit cream filling, it was the best Kitkat I've ever eaten. I've been craving them ever since!

    1. I never did try that one but it sounds absolutely ace! I do think dark chocolate would work much better with the passionfruit too.
