Blueberry Cheesecake Kit Kat Bar- Limited Edition Japan Only

One of the things I love the most about Japanese products in general is that they love to try all sorts of new flavors on favorite products.
One of those products has become Kit Kat bars. Much like Pokey there are dozens of flavors (granted most are limited edition) at any given time. I wish we did more of that here. This is actually the first of the Japanese Kit Kat's I have had the opportunity to try and I would like to give a shout out to my friends at Jlist.Com for sending me out a sample to try.

The Blueberry Cheesecake Kit Kat is a cheesecake flavored chocolate with blueberry cream cheese spread between the layers.

The chocolate it's self looks like white chocolate (and since the label is entirely in Japanese I am going to assume that it is) The bar it's self smells like berry flavored cereal. There is a oaty, cereal quality to it. Trying to isolate the chocolate was difficult. About all I can tell you is that it is very sweet and does have a tangy cheesecake like flavor to it.

Although you can't see any tell-tale signs of blueberry once you bite into the finger there is no question that they are there. If you have ever had the blueberry pancake syrup at Ihop you know exactly what the filling tastes like. It's very, very sweet and there is no tartness to it- near the end you start to think it should be sour but in reality it just seems slightly less sweet.

Maybe I am just way to fond of Ihop syrup but I really liked these. Because they were so sweet I couldn't eat more then a couple fingers at a time but I really wish they would bring these to the states- until then at least there is Jlist!

I added you to my BlogRoll...just started a new food reviews site.

Where do you get your foreign snacks?

Thanks for the add, I returned the favor! those artichoke chips sounded great.

As for the foreign snacks that's a long answer... These Kit Kats came from the good people over they have an amazing selection of all kinds of Japanese snacks.

But, for some of my other reviews some of the items came from shops in NYC. Other's from local speciality shops- I am lucky enough to live in immediate driving distance of an Italian Grocer, a German Deli, a British Tea House and an Asian super market- and I can get a fantastic array of Mexican products at any local store that carries food- Got to love Southern California!

But Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Costplus World Market also are excellent sources.
