Mythical Wasabi Kit Kat Bars…EXIST!

Background: Micah and I went to Japan back in early December 2009.  It was a whirlwind trip.  But, you may remember, this trip started my obsession fascination with the wonderful world of Kit Kat candy bars.  So many flavors I never knew existed…one such flavor being…wasabi!

Yes…as in the green pasty blob served with sushi. 

Side note: Real wasabi is a root – albeit, a very expensive root that is grated.  The green pasty stuff is a very cheap imposter, but tasty nonetheless.

During our short time in Japan (despite numerous, numerous convenience store searches), I never came across the Wasabi flavor.  Argh! 

Now enter my friend…Mark!  (He’s the one with arrows pointed at his temples.)

mark!

More background: Micah and I, as well as a few other friends, met Mark in Seoul over New Years.  It was a random meeting…but turned into a fun-filled weekend.  We learned that Mark is Korean, but was adopted by an American family when he was very young.  He came to Korea to teach English at a school in Seoul.  Hmm…sound like a certain someone else you know?? ;-)  Well, he literally just left to go back to the States – GOODBYE MARK! 😦

Anyways…before he returned home, he ventured off to Japan for some travelling.  I casually demanded asked that he be on the lookout for Wasabi Kit Kats while he was out and about.  His response after being in Japan for a bit, “I’ve yet to find the mythical wasabi kit kat bars of which you speak…”  My immediate response: unfriend on Facebook.  Kidding. Kidding! 🙂

Today, I received a package.  From Mark.  Here’s what was inside:

They definitely have the “bite” of wasabi (toned down quite a bit) – combined with the sweet and crunchy wafer.  They are delish (although green tea is still my favorite)Thank you Mark!  Check out his blog here. (He takes some pretty amazing pics).

    Haha, I’m so glad they made it! Truth be told, the one and only place that I found them was in a souvenir shop at Narita airport as we were leaving. I think green tea is my favorite as well, but I didn’t get a chance to try the cherry blossom ones… 😀
