Is there anything more satisfying than breaking off the first piece of a freshly unwrapped Kit Kat bar? While we’re pretty sure those four bars were intended to be eaten piecemeal throughout the day we all know it’s barely going to last past 2 minutes because those chocolate covered wafers are irresistible. I mean, come on.
In Japan there are hundreds of flavors of Kit Kat on the market (way more than those of us in the states have!), the popular ones being matcha and fruit flavored, but they’ve also unleashed more obscure and savory flavors, like soy sauce. Now the crispy, chocolate coated candy is getting its time in the spotlight as it’s being celebrated with a pop-up museum in Japan.
Per fellow Kit-Kat lovers Kotaku and Fashion Press, the museum is located in the Nescafe in Harajuku, a perfect fit since coffee and chocolate go so well together. With are over 300 Kit Kat products packages on display, it’s definitely one of the most delicious historical archaeological studies ever captured. But why just look when you can buy? A candy lovers’ dream come true, you can actually purchase local faves which are normally only sold in specific regions of Japan—save yourself a train ticket and pick up these rare Kit Kat varieties right on site!
To commemorate the launch of the museum, a new line of Kit Kat created by pastry chef Takagi called “Kit Kat every day of luxury” has been released with a combination flavor of dried cranberries and almonds. This self-proclaimed luxurious candy is supposed to be a reward for yourself, but really when isn’t chocolate the best reward.
The Kit Kat Museum is located at the Nescafe in Harajuku and runs until September 25.
