Nestle Matcha "Adult Sweetness" KitKat

Matcha KitKat

Even though I've been away from the blog for a while, I was really tempted to come out of hiatus just to post a review of the incredible "Adult Sweetness" Matcha KitKat. It's everything I love about matcha and KitKats, and I highly recommend you try it if you like green tea.

This summer, I went on a business trip to northern Ontario, Canada, and got stuck there over a holiday weekend. I took a day trip to Toronto with the sole purpose of buying snacks, and I was not disappointed, because I found this KitKat.

This KitKat had a strong matcha scent and a gorgeous green color. The flavor was spot-on: nice and bitter and just a little grassy. The "Adult Sweet" (meaning not very sweet at all) white chocolate added just a hint of milkiness, like a strong matcha latte. Perfect for a matcha enthusiast!

The matcha chocolate was creamy and just a little grainy, which went well with the delicate wafers. The wafers also seemed finely milled in comparison to a normal KitKat. I bought 5 boxes and a bag of mini bars, but it wasn't enough. I miss this KitKat so much. Japanese Snack Reviews reviewed them too, if you'd like an opinion from a less matcha-addled mind.

I bought a version of these at a music store (of all places) in Michigan where I live. I paid $5.99 for 5 tiny bars. They were so good!!!

Had I known I would love them so much I would have bought the other ones they had. They haven't had them since. Your review makes me want to search online and buy some more, forget about the price!

I feel exactly the same way! Writing the review and now reading your comment makes me want to track down more of these, at any price! Thanks for commenting!
