Kit Kat Message

Though it isn’t really a Japanese product, Kit Kat struck gold in Japan when it arrived in 1973 because of its lucky-sounding name. You see, in Japanese, Kit Kat or Kitto Katto sounds a lot like Kitto Katsu, the Japanese phrase for “you’ll certainly win.” Ever since then, these chocolate-coated wafers have become a huge hit in Japan. (If you’d like to learn everything about these delightful treats, then check out our article, Japanese Kit Kats: the Ultimate Guide.) 


Kit Kats have become so popular in Japan that there are more than 300 different flavors or iterations of these chocolatey goodies. It’s a smorgasbord of chocolate madness! To help you explore the wild, wild world of Japanese Kit Kats, we’ve decided to compile all the different flavors and variations in this comprehensive list! Let’s get started, shall we? 



Regular Flavors

These are the Japanese flavors that are available all year round in Japan. They’re also pretty common and not that hard to find. These classic or regular flavors include original chocolate, matcha (green tea), hojicha (roasted green tea) and whole wheat. 

 Classic Japanese Kit Kat

Original Chocolate 

These Kit Kats offer the classic wafer and milk chocolate combo. It’s a timeless treat! 


Kit Kat Matcha

Matcha (Green Tea)

Hojicha or roasted green tea is a traditional Japanese flavor that’s smoky and earthy.



Whole Wheat 

These Whole Wheat Kit Kats are made for the health-conscious chocolate lover. Each wafer is made with whole wheat flour! 



Otona no Amasa

Otona no Amasa means “sweetness for adults” in English. Just like the name implies, these Kit Kats are less sweet than the regular flavors and have more nuance to them too. These Kit Kats include dark chocolate, deep matcha, strawberry, white chocolate, raspberry, and caramel.

Melty Caramel

While most people are used to overly sweet caramel, these Japanese Kit Kats are just right! 



Seasonal Kit Kat
