Japanese Soy Sauce Kit KatI had been hearing about the weird Japanese Kit Kat flavors for quite a while. So when I found myself on an hour and a half layover at the airport in Japan, I knew I had to bring some home. I brought home lots of flavors: strawberry cheese cake, annin dofu (almond jelly), soy sauce, green tea (uji macha) and green tea (sakura maccha). Last night I started upon my exploration of Kit Kats from Japan. I tried Soy Sauce first. I expected a it to be a dark, luscious color. Instead it was the color of white chocolate. I also expected a juxtaposition of sweetness and umami. Instead, I got the intoxicating scent of caramel. It hit me on the nose immediately.  Reminded me of those caramel candles you get at the store. Nothing at all reminiscent of what Americans would think of as soy sauce. The crunch was lovely, this was expected.

Soy Sauce Kit KatThis flavor was way better than a regular Kit Kat, absolutely delicious. Tastes like heated sugar in a pan. Although it was so tasty, I was a bit disappointed. I was hoping for something innovative, odd, interesting and still delicious. I am not saying that I would not eat this delicious morsel again, but I hope that they work on a true Soy Sauce Flavored Kit Kat.
