A Kit Kat follow up

It has recently been exam time in Japan so the Kit Kat manufacturers have gone a little crazy. Kit Kat sounds like Kito Katsu which basically means good luck with exams or I hope you pass. There are heaps of flavours out there right now. Every month or so they bring out a new flavour to try...
Strawberry is a winter fruit here...
It is almost cherry blossom time. Sakura in Japanese...
Who can resist bitter chocolate? ME! I don't like dark chocolate but it is very popular here.
The Kit Kat I blogged about earlier. Curisupi (crispy). See how the packet is missing the English words for Kit Kat. Quite unusual.

I just tried the strawberry Kit Kat. It was okay. A little bit too much fake strawberry flavouring for me though.

Well spotted, I want to try that crispy stuff now (when my tooth is better!)

the bitter one is LOVELY...although i prefer the ones that were out at xmas...the dark ones dusted in cocoa powder! yum!

So, when I went out to buy all of these flavours yesterday, I knocked something off a shelf. When I bent down to pick it uo something caught my eye... a big bag of mini berry flavour kit kats! As I was already buying loads, I didn't get them, but I want to know what they are like if anyone has tried them...

Ellen, I'm glad to know that you are documenting the Kit Kat scene. Clearly you grasp the importance of this matter.

Please bring some home with you!
Can you guess who wants them (and isn't supposed to eat any chocolate)?
