We’ve heard of some strange Kit Kat flavors before – like melon, grilled potato, and wasabi – but the newest flavor in Japan has to be one of the most bizarre: Cough drop.
Why on earth? Makers say the candy bar contains “real throat lozenge powder,” so it can actually soothe your sore throat. Not what we’re usually looking for in a chocolaty treat, but okay. In Nestlé Japan’s press release, they say the new cough-drop is made by kneading throat lozenge powder into the bar’s white chocolate layers and that they have a “fresh and invigorating flavor.”
Aside from the flavor itself, we’re also confused by the packages, which feature the face of Yasutaro Matsuki, a soccer commentator. But the release of the limited-edition Kit Kats is actually tied to FIFA World Cup matches. So fans can cheer for their team and then eat Kit Kats to make their throats feel better. But we’re just going to stick to regular Kit Kats and skip the cough syrup.
