In Japan, there are many flavors of Kit-Kat.
I wrote a post about many of them. (Click here to read it.)
Last Friday, the world’s first Kit-Kat Store, a store that sells different flavors of Kit-Kat chocolate bars exclusively, opened in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.

Yes, but did you go check the place out? We did. It’s not a store, it’s a counter in the dessert department of the basement and they only sold three kinds of Kit Kat, one of which was sold out. It was not what we thought it would be. We hoped it would have many flavors.
No, I didn’t go. I don’t care enough about junkfood to make a special trip. I rarely go to Ikebukuro either.
In Japan, many department stores rent out corners of their place to other stores … so that Kit-Kat area is considered a shop.
And I heard that they’re starting out with only a few flavors to see how popular the shop will be. If successful, they’ll certainly add more later.
ah ok. It was our first time in that area. We have been sending a few of the kit Kat’s to my step daughter.
>It was our first time in that area.
Was it your first time to Ikebukuro?
Did you go to Sunshine 60? It’s a huge shopping center with an aquarium, an ice cream store that has unique flavors, etc
I read about this when one of my friends posted it on his wall. We want to come back to Japan in the worst way. Who knew you could be homesick for a place you visited once?
Do you have plans to visit Japan again?
At this point, just dreaming. Andrea wants to do an exchange program at some point, but we haven’t made any specific plans. We just really, really want to come back again.
Hopefully your dream will come true!
NICE!! Based on our current economic climate and high taxes here in the U.S., there would never be a cool Kit Kat store opening up anywhere near me… anytime soon.
If anything, stores are downsizing their workforces due to “Obama Care” and many stores like Target are closing down store locations. “Obama Care” has forced employers to pay incredibly high insurance for their employees, due to new government health insurance regulations, which has hit the “bottom line” of employers. It’s a mess over here, Metal Buddy. A complete economic mess.
I continue to admire the diverse marketing of products that takes place in Tokyo. BTW… I love Kit Kats too… I usually only eat them around Halloween, when we buy bags of ‘em to give out to trick or treaters. LOL!!
Speaking of high taxes … when I came to Japan, sales tax was 3% … then it was raised to it’s current 5%.
In April (2014), it will, unfortunately, go up to 8% !
And next year, 10% !
I HOPE THEY OPEN UP AN ONLINE STORE AND CAN SHIP IT INTERNATIONALLY!!!!! XD
Maybe they will…but the shipping charges might make them expensive!
I LOVE YOU AND YOUR BLOG!!!!! XD
