KitKat Cacao 72 % Chocolate with Cacao Nibs
Recently, I have learned that Kit Kat Dark Chocolate comes with “70” in many countries. But here, the number is 72.
Today, I will introduce the Japan edition Kitkat Cacao 72 % chocolate I picked up at a supermarket.
Kitkat Cacao 72
With the elaborately drawn picture of a cacao pod on the front, the Kitkat Cacao 72 package is easily recognizable at first glance.
Cacao is a superfood, and this Kit Kat sounds healthful with a twist of its nibs or finely crushed roasted cacao beans in the chocolate covering.
I think the product named Chocolate Kouka from Meiji influenced the number 72, as it is Japan’s best-selling high cacao-content chocolate.
Unlike Meiji Chocolate Kouka, Kit Kat has wafers inside, and thanks to the stuff, I found these somewhat easier to eat. (Honestly, I tried this Kitkat for the first time.)
The texture of the outer chocolate part is distinctive due to the cacao nibs contained, but as a whole, the Kitkat Cacao 72 bar is harmonized and tastes pretty good.
