Autumn in Japan means many things: when it comes to visuals, the most obvious element is the red maple leaves (momiji); when it comes to tastes, one of the most powerful are the sweet potatoes (satsuma-imo, after the area in Kyushu where they come from). So naturally, this was a flavor that Nestle had to pick for its autumn lineup. The Kit Kat Mini Autumn Sweet Potato is yet another, very welcome chapter in the Kit Kat Mini Only-in-Japan saga!
As befits its name, the Kit Kat Mini Autumn Sweet Potato consists of 11 delicious mini wafers covered in white chocolate and layered with sweet potato paste. The flavor is soft but rich, and quite different from anything else you've tried before. After all, sweet potato isn't exactly a standard match with chocolate! Still, it is a taste dear to all Japanese, so if you want to indulge your love for chocolate and your love for Japanese cuisine, this snack is a must!
