Raspberry Kit Kat

Posted on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 | 0 comments

           Spotted a new flavor of Kit Kats in the store today...raspberry. Or 'framboise', as they say here after the French for raspberry. (Side note--d'Anjou pears are called 'La France', I guess since that's where they originated?).
  We were pleasantly surprised by this flavor--dark chocolate in combination with very obvious raspberry. It's probably an 8 on the 10 point scale, not counting the fact that our particular package was for some reason impossible to open at the indicated spot---EVERY package in Japan has a little slit or spot for easy opening, there's none of those chips/cereal/crackers/catsup-flying-through-the-air incidents that make opening packages so much fun in the US. Except for this package, which had the specified site but still wouldn't open.
  After we finally yanked the wrapper apart and pulled out the mangled Kit Kat, Yuki then managed to take out a good chunk of his tongue along with the first bite. Ugh, makes me squirm just remembering it. But I guess you know that it's a pretty good Kit Kat when even blood doesn't stop you from eating it!
