Japanese Kit Kat Sakura Flavor Chocolate Mini Bar

Following the winter Ume (梅), the beautiful pink, spring Sakura (桜) season has finally come to Tokyo, where the flowering was announced a couple of days ago.

The other day with that news, I found this limited-time edition Sakura Kit Kat at a supermarket near my house and got it.

I reviewed Sakura Mochi Kit Kat during the same season last year (2020), but this year (2021), the seasonal Kit Kat comes with just Sakura without using sweet red bean paste or Anko (餡子).

Donation to Sakura Line 311

Based on the description, Nestle Japan has supported the reconstruction of the Tohoku region since the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

And 10 yen (about 0.1 USD) from the profit of every sold package is donated to the Sakura Line 311 (桜ライン311) project.

Further, as you can see in the photo above, every single packing of the Kit Kat has a message to the Tohoku region.

Chocolate Bar

As I mentioned above, unlike the Sakura Mochi flavor, the wafer part of this mini bar doesn’t contain red bean paste.

Instead, it has a sweetness reminiscent of cherry tree leaves.

On the other hand, the pink chocolate covering is associated with cherry blossoms.

Therefore, in this Sakura Kit Kat, the taste is the cherry tree leaf, while the appearance is the cherry blossom.
