Kit Kat Japan-Limited Autumn Sweet Potato Flavor
Although winter is just around the corner here in Japan, yesterday when I was shopping at a drugstore, I stumbled upon an autumn flavor of Japanese Kit Kat by chance.
There are 2 Kit Kat Japan-limited flavors that represent fall, that is, “Aki-Imo (秋芋: Autumn Potato)” and “Aki-Guri (秋栗: Autumn Chestnut)”, but what I encountered this time is the former, Aki-Imo flavor.
Kit Kat Japan Aki-Imo Sweet Potato Flavor
The flavor name of this Kit Kat Mini is “Akiimo (秋芋: Autumn Potato)”, but the picture of the sweet potato or Satsuma-Imo on the package front is associated with Yakiimo.
“Yaki-Imo (焼き芋)” is a plain sweet potato snack often eaten during the autumn-winter season in Japan which is traditionally roasted in burning fallen leaves in the yard.
In fact, the flavor of this Kit Kat Mini bar reminds me of the taste of Yakiimo I used to eat as a kid. Containing actual sweet potato powder in it, the whitish chocolate bar has a very Satsuma-Imo flavor. It tastes unique but is quite good.
Specifically, according to the ingredient list, the Kit Kat Japan Autumn Sweet Potato flavor chocolate bar is made from sugar, milk sugar, vegetable fat, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, wheat flour, Satsuma-Imo sweet potato powder, yeast, cocoa powder, cacao mass, cocoa butter, emulsifier, flavoring, baking soda, yeast food, and cape jasmine pigment.
