Connoisseurs of exotic KitKat flavours take note. There are now two new ones on the market: A tea-flavoured version and one called Basil Nut Choco.
It took me a minute to realise that they probably mean Brazil nut, although the photograph shows a hazelnut or maybe a macadamia nut. Name confusion aside, this is the better one as it has a rich, nutty and buttery flavour.
The tea-flavoured one tastes pretty much like regular KitKat, but like all the other Japanese versions of this popular chocolate wafer I've tasted, the chocolate is smooth and rich.
Definitely a cut above the garden-variety sold in shops everywhere.
