Tokyo Banana Kit Kat
These were the latest and greatest Japanese Kit Kats available when I was visiting Tokyo in December 2017. A collaboration between Tokyo Banana, famous for their little sponge cakes filled with cream, and Kit Kat. You could only buy these at a food souvenir store near Character street in the basement mall of Tokyo Station. There were short lineups for them still when I was visiting as they had been out for a few weeks already.
Some of the reviewers said they had a great banana flavour. When I had them, I thought the banana flavour was actually a little artificial tasting. Another guy from the office thought the same too. Nice to try, but I wouldn't get it again.

The Other Snacks I Packed
|Matcha almond berry Kit Kats. By the bag!|
|Muji dehydrated strawberrys covered in green tea chocolate. These are yummy, with a nice matcha taste mixing with the tartness of the whole dried strawberries.|
|Chocolate covered strawberries and deep fried veggie chips.|
|Japanese peanuts and crackers mix. Yummy with beer or other drinks.|
|Muji squash chips. These were pretty good, but I didn't quite meet my higher expectations that I had imagined. Nice squash flavour though.|
|These are ume sheets of pressed pickled plum. Kind of reminded me of Chinese pickled and dried plums. These were really good and I wish I had bought like 10 packs as they aren't very big.|
|Rice crackers from Muji. These have always been really good.|
|These were a new item for the fall of 2017. I had tried the previous sake Kit Kat before, but this deluxe Sake Kit Kat lives up to the hype and has a great sake taste to it. Very authentic.|
|Sakenomy - side of the box. This Kit Kat is made with Masuizumi, a sake that has been made by its brewer for over a century.|

|Some more typical chocolates with strawberry as a theme!|
|Strawberry Cheese Cake Kit Kats in the Mt. Fuji gift box.|
|You get like 9 bars inside the box. This is a really tasty strawberry Kit Kat. One of my favourites.|
|Two kinds of gum. The Xylish is like a mint fruit gum, while the Lotte Brain Gum is supposed to help you think as it has some ginko extract.|
