From the Chocolatory: Orange Cocktail Kit Kat Review

IMG_2122I’ve always found it interesting how Kit Kat originated in the UK, yet Japan’s the one that comes up with the most innovative flavours. From wasabi to rum raisin, apple and even cream cheese – you name it, Japan’s probably thought of it.

No surprise about the Kit Kat Chocolatory in Ikebukuro, Tokyo then, which is a boutique offering limited edition, premium versions of this sweet wafer treat. One such flavour you can get is the Orange Cocktail which comes in a fancy little box that’s so special, this ish even has the word ‘special’ on it. Heh.

IMG_2137I’ve not had a whole ton of novelty Kit Kats to call myself a connoisseur, but orange cocktail sounded promising and I was excited to try it out.

Alas, I opened it.


IMG_2165It looked like any ol’ Kit Kat with just a light whiff of orange. No trace of liqueur in the wafer itself, and the scent of it was barely even detectable.

Chocolate and orange have always been thought of as a perfect match, but this was quite disappointing to say the least. I wasn’t even expecting Cointreau or Grand Marnier to be oozing out, but Kit Kat could definitely afford to be much bolder in terms of flavour for a stronger impact and a greater kick.
