Random Picture #75

The Japanese KitKat scene has been a wasteland littered with tumbleweeds of uninspired options. The latest entry is just another cactus popping up out of the ground amongst a gaggle of nondescript cacti. These are "puff" big bars which take the standard milk chocolate big bar and stir some rice puffs into the coating. That's it. <yawn> Offering this unimaginative creation on top of a cookies and cream version and a strawberry hazelnut one that was 95% strawberry is going to seriously undercut the image of Japanese KitKats as wild and weird.

Not too inspired and sounds like they are trying to pad it out.

I went to Hakata Station with a friend last week looking for Kyushu's Kit Kats (We get Okinawa, too, so we have Sweet Potato and That Spicy Citrus Stuff) - anyway, no one had it. I asked around and "Kit Kat ja arimasen."

It's making me nervous.
