According to Rocket News, each Kit Kat has 2.1 percent throat lozenge powder mixed into the white chocolate. Nestlé calls the resulting medicinal flavor “fresh and invigorating.” 

The Kit Kat packages are imprinted with the face of Yasutaro Matsuki, a Japanese soccer commentator, in honor of Japan's participation in the 2018 World Cup. His cartoon face is drawn with a headset on, yelling (in Japanese), "It's one more point! Another point!”

The dual-purpose chocolate will be available in Japan until September 10.

Here are 6 other Japanese Kit Kat flavors we need in America.
