Just when you thought everything in the world had been tried the fine folks in Japan find a way to rock your world. I seem to have noticed the number of “variations” I've reviewed has increased. I used to shy away from them but now I think I'm searching for a reason for them to exist. I think I'm looking for that one variation treat that completely changes my mind about the idea that making a variation is in fact really clever and not just a cop out for candy companies. It's not that I don't enjoy the flavour of variations it's just that I don't think they're very creative.
This particular treat most definitely falls under the taste good category, and it's even kind of unique. At least here in North America it is. I mean green tea has become a fairly common flavour of drink in North America, I have seen it at Baskin Robins, so it's not that strange. The thing is it’s still a bit of a gimmick. While Baskin Robins might sell a green tea ice cream, I’m sure it’s not their number one seller. We drink green tea, but we’re still getting used to eating it.
In the Kit Kat form green tea is pretty tasty. You can't really taste it when you first bite into the bar, but it leaves a nice after taste when the chocolate melts in your mouth. I'm glad because if they completely dominated the bar with green tea it might have been really gross. The bar also keeps its great Kit Kat texture and chocolate to wafer ratio you’d expect.
If you want something different that isn't too scary I'd completely recommend picking one of these up.
