I love surprises. Especially in the office. It lifts the drudgery of work and it’s more fun having a group of people delighting with me than to be amused alone.
And this afternoon at work, I received a surprise delivery… limited edition Halloween Kit Kat bars imported from Japan! Iketeiru! (>,<)
The folks at Nestle Singapore sure know how to work a Kit Kat break! I wasn't expecting this sweet gift at all.
The taste of this pleasant surprise must not go to waste! So I skived and got into some monkey business with the gift...
See what the Kit Kats attracted? Dog, monkey, and some alien plush that gets the nod for Halloween. Aces for presenting the chocolate bars in a classy Japanese lacquer box. NICE!
Different Jack-O faces on the limited ed. wrappers. Can't decide if I should collect them or eat them?!
Kawaii neh! I meant the choc packaging. Haha... Shared the special treat with my BEAUTIFUL colleagues and our little department had an early bite into trick-or-treating. Problem was, there weren't enough pairs of the snack to give everyone a break! And the bars are kind of petite.
Kit Kat Pumpkin Cheesecake and Otonano Amasa (meaning "sweetness of adult"). Tried them both and o... o... oh... oishii neh! They are not as sweet as the original Kit Kat and I enjoyed how their aftertaste linger on. Pumpkin Cheesecake lives up to its name and the dark chocolate Otonano Amasa with tiny biscuit bits is just too sinful not to eat! Once you go Jap, you never go back.
These limited edition Kit Kats are available in Singapore only for the month of October, or until stocks run out. They can be found exclusively at NTUC Fairprice at S$2.95 (3 piece-packs) and S$6.75 (13 pieces share bags).
I go to NTUC almost every other day and I haven’t even seen the Pumpkin Cheesecake flavour. Then I found out from the Kit Kat folks that the first shipment was sold out very quickly. My guess is that the reason I got this chocolatey teaser half-way through October is because a new shipment just came in. So if you’re planning on giving these limited edition Kit Kats a try, move fast!
Have a break. Go Pump some Cheese and Chocolate into your Kin’s cake on a dark Hallowed night. Happy trick-AND-treating!
