Nestle Mixed Juice Kit Kat ミックスジュース キットカット

The colour of this Kit Kat is a bit surprising. It's the same colour as the cheese on a McDonald's cheeseburger. I kid you not.

It's a bright yellow orange, that I guess is representative of juice, but it still reminds me of cheeseburger. The bar encompasses the flavours of Peach, Banana, and Strawberry. I've never actually tried that combination together in a juice but I'm sure it would go together well.

The bar smells very much like banana from the outside. Biting into it however, is another story. It's kind of weird but I get a taste like tomato ketchup. There is also a very strong chemical taste which ends up being banana. There are some very fake peach notes. The peach in this kit kat is very similar in flavour to the Peach in the Tirol Mix Pack. I don't like it as much in the kit kat as I did in the Tirol. There are only very vague hint of the strawberry, a little bit of tartness here and there, but mostly overtaken by very sweet peach and chemical tasting banana.

I'm usually a fan of the fruitier kit kats, but I can't say that about this one. It's just too sweet and the fruit components really taste fake.

Whoa, sounds a bit gross if you ask me. XD I guess I should say "Thanks for the warning!!" Don't think I'll be buying a kit kat resembling(cheese color) and somewhat tasting(tomato) like a cheeseburger. lol I haven't even tried the 'sakura' version yet. I bet that one isn't bad though. ;^)

Yeah, it was pretty gross. I've tried previous versions of the Sakura kit kat and it is pretty nice, interesting too. I have a matcha + sakura kit kat in my box ready to review...hoping that will be a good taste!

Thanks for commenting :)

I just posted a review of this today, too! It wasn't my type of KitKat either.

The Matcha/Sakura KitKat was DEFINITELY my type, though! I hope you like it!

I'll usually buy each new Japanese flavour on impulse, but after the debacle that was the Vegetable Juice ones earlier this year, I left these well alone, not wanting a whole bag sitting uneaten. Seems I made a good decision.
