きっと勝つ (Japanese Kit Kats)

I’m feeling a little better today about everything and had a very illuminating conversation about mail fraud! Did you know it’s a federal offense to tamper with stamps (even if it’s only 25 cents, you’ll still go to the slammer)? Cases with mail fraud are automatically federal, not state. Looks like there are two US agencies not to mess with: the IRS and the US Postal Service.

So, in honor of victory, here’s some Kit Kats. Kit Kats are popular in Japan because the name sounds like, “(I’m) definitely going to win!” As a result, there are many weird and funky Kit Kat flavors and colors available for a limited time, and then a newer, weirder one rolls out. Here’s some that I’ve collected:

Top to bottom: Ginger Ale, Plum Soda Flavor, Royal Milk Tea

Top to bottom: Apple, Japanese Lemonade Soda (blue, tastes  like melon soda, sort of, not like real lemonade), Mugwort Bean Cake, and Mango Pudding.

They’re also different colors as well. My favorite was a pink cherry flavored one that tasted just like those cherry bonnet ice cream cones- the dipped ones.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    I have been fascinated with Japanese kit kat’s for a few year’s now, but I’ve never tried to get my own. Where do you get yours? Cool post!

    I’m in Japan, so I get ’em at the convenience store. 😉 But some of them are downright disgusting- I’m looking at you, Olive Kit Kat.

    Congrats to your victory!

    BTW, these kit kats couldn’t fair worse than when Garden (the manufacture brand with similar popularity as Kellogg’s in Asia) came out with Durian wafers, cookies and candies. x( Talk about marginalized market! I kept trying to swallow them but wow, that was truly things you can’t get used to!

    Uh, without knowing your skill level and what you’re going to do (whole nails? 3D art?), I can’t advise you guys. But the kits are pretty standard- It’s just acrylic powder and a liquid that combine together. It’s harder to do than polish and stinks really bad, but if you’re willing to devote a lot of time to practice, maybe it’ll be worth it for you.

    I’d love to try all of those flavors. I love Kit Kats and have heard about all the wild flavors of the Japanese brand. Amazing how there are such different flavors in each country.
