Sushi Kit Kats are now things that are real


April Fools joke GONE REAL

In April 1st of Last year, Kit Kat Japan joined in on the April fools festivities and "promoted" Kit Kat Sushi as a joke for fun and to tease us with another weird yet intriguing Kit Kat flavor that the west will never see in stores. Well, now Kit Kat Japan just decided to twist that chocolate wafer knife some more and actually released Sushi Kit Kats.

That sounds weird as hell, right? Fish and chocolate? Well first off, sushi isn't exclusively fish *spins elitist Japanese knowledge hat*, and these Sushi Kit Kats are not real sushi but are existing Kit Kats on small blocks of flavored rice crispy treats. The flavors of the Kit Kats are raspberry with white chocolate rice (modeled on Maguro aka Tuna),  the second is Hokkaido melon with mascarpone cheese (modeled on Uni or sea urchin), and the last one is pumpkin pudding (modeled on Tamago or egg). Perhaps the only real sushi thing in there is the seaweed, which according to the video above from Abroad in Japan, actually suits the flavor.

I am interested in this invention from Kit Kat Japan not just because we won't ever see it over in the west. I've seen Americans making something like 'Candy Sushi' before but I can imagine to be only ridiculously sweet. Americans have a bit of lack of balance and complexity when it comes to food flavoring in a lot of foods. Check out the video above and the link below for more details.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
