In Japan, the Kitkat candy bar comes in all kinds of weird flavors (strange to Americans anyway). We reported a while back that there are something like 80+ varieties of KitKat available there, including green tea, apple-carrot and melon.
Website Yumsugar alerted us to another crazy KitKat flavor: Soy Sauce. What’s perhaps even stranger: It’s the number one seller in Japan. Yumsugar asked its readers to vote on whether they’d be willing to try it. Fifty-three percent voted that it â€˜sounds dubious, but I’d give it a bite.â€™ You can click here to cast your vote.
Well, it appears the sweet-and-salty trend is still going strongâ€”at least in Japan.
