A rather weird, wacky, and wild Kit Kat belongs to the vegetable kingdom. Come on in! Sit down! You are about to enjoy the Edamame Soy Kit Kat! This one, though popular in the Japanese Kit Kat world, would never make it in North America. It has an immature nutty flavor. Like you picked the edamame beans way too early. The color is a strange shade of green. But when all is said and done, it is one of the Kit Kat Stars of the Japanese world. Eat your veggies, the Japanese way!

I do not know about you, but I must have my morning cup of tea. Can a Kit Kat fill that need? Give a special welcome to the Matcha-Green Tea Kit Kat. In America tea is for drinking! Unless of course, you want to protest your unfair taxation. We do not tend to use tea to flavor our ice cream, cookies, or make our candy bars. Never-the-less, move over and welcome the Matcha Green-Tea Kit Kat. It is unique among Kit Kats! It is a close facsimile to a cup of Matcha Green-Tea from Starbucks. It is delicious!
