The internet has gone crazy for Kit Kat's newest creation.  See here, here, and here for just a few examples.

Why I didn't rush out an immediately buy these, I did pick some up yesterday while I was at the コンビニ but they're not exactly flying off the shelf.

Here's some information about the 日本酒 Kit Kats:
  • They are white chocolate.
  • They have actual alcohol powder in them (0.8%).
  • They are not recommended for children (it says this on the package).
  • 日本酒 is what you might call sake.

First, I was overwhelmed by the smell.  These smell like actual sake (or that odd guy on the train at 2:15 in the afternoon).  They taste like it too (albeit a sweet version of it).  So congrats Kit Kat, you did what you set out to do, alcohol chocolate.

Here's a disclaimer.  I don't like sake.  I ate this for the blog (actually choked down is more like it).  I'm not a fan of these.  Maybe if you like sake, you'll like these.

(I'm a bit sad that this wasn't #50 on the list.)
