Toasty!: Bakeable Kit Kats Released in Japan
Pop Tarts aren’t the only sweet snack that you can pop in the toaster oven.
The new Japanese Kit Kat store in Tokyo will soon be serving bakeable Kit Kat bars called “Bake ‘N Tasty Mini Kit Kats.” The chocolate bars, available in Japan starting next week, come in the typical chocolate wafer flavor as well as a new custard pudding flavor according to Japanese culture blog Rocket News 24.
So how does it work? Japanese patisserie Yasumasa Takagi told Rocket News 24 that the sugar content of the Kit Kats, when heated in a toaster, “hardens into a solid candy-like state faster than the chocolate on the surface melts, resulting in a chocolate and wafer biscuit combination with a texture resembling a cookie and a sweet caramelized smell.”
It only takes about two minutes to heat up these sweet innovations and a pack of these Kit Kats cost about $5 U.S. dollars. Unfortunately, no word on if these snacks are coming stateside anytime soon. This isn't the only unusual junk food to come from Japan. The Daily Meal recently wrote about new spaghetti-flavored ice pops.
