@phalarope - click the image - it's a link to a web shop who ship them (and all sorts of other similar stuff) worldwide.

I'd agree with Steeljam though - Japan has the best range of KitKats around for some reason. Even locally specific ones like Wasabi, Soy Sauce, Maccha, Soya Bean, most of which are an interesting combination (and some actually not as bad as they sound). See the link below for 51 Japanese flavour options...

But yes, also avoid the American produced ones unless your tastes are for American chocolate on them (which most non-colonials aren't of course as we aren't exposed to the butyric acid they put in it).

It's because the phrase "Kit Kat" sounds a lot like "Kitto Katsu" meaning "Certain Victory" or "You will surely win" so they are given as good luck charms for exams etc.
And therefore the range needed swells enormously with their popularity in Japanese culture

I had a Japanese roommate my freshman year in college. The 'unusual' sweets she got in care packages from home, urgh! I'm pretty willing to try most anything, particularly if it involves something that swims or breathes through gills, but some of those taste combinations were 'cultural'.

I thank Japanese Kit Kats are also the only way to get ruby chocolate.

Had a clear-out rummage through the freezer, and found a package labeled 'venison roast'. :roll: No date, wrapped in freezer paper, probably burned. Consulted various printed authorities and the interwebz. Finally decided to crockpot the whole thing with vinegar and 'pickling spice'. It smalls yummy but tenderness has yet to happen after 8 hours. There's a baked potato in the oven, and beef stock to make gravy if it winds up dreadfully dry. Fingers crossed. Interwebz suggested using leftovers in fajitas. Gonna try that tomorrow night (mango salsa, yum).

Dratted venison was very dry, as expected. However, it made extremely yummy fajitas. :D Tomorrow it's getting drowned in BBQ sauce for 'sloppy does'.

It is asparagus season. Therefore asparagus and potato soup is on the menu at Chez Phalarope. :bounce: :bounce:

Tomatoes, glorious tomatoes. Vine ripened heirloom Cherokee Purples. Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on white toast with mayonnaise. Split baguette topped with Brie slices, chopped tomato and basil, and balsamic vinaigrette, run under the broiler until the cheese melts. Chilled tomato-basil bisque. Caprese salad with balsamic reduction.

Don't get me started on peaches!

Tomatoes are my favorite vegetable, excuse me whilst I wipe up the drool.
