kit kat sushi set to roll into tokyo stores

 

these sushi ‘flavored’ kit kats are set to hit specialty stores in ginza, tokyo in early february. the limited edition edibles will be available in three unique flavors, each drawn from a traditional japanese dish: tuna, sea urchin and egg. ‘tuna’ is a mix of raspberry chocolate bars placed on a bed of sculpted rice puffs; ‘sea urchin’ blends melon with mascarpone cheese, held together by a seaweed wrapping; while ‘egg’ is pumpkin pudding and rice, encased in a ribbon-like seaweed shell.

tokyo bargain mania reports that kit kat japan will launch the sushi-inspired products at its new ginza store on february 2nd, 2017. while the company teased the idea last year as an early april fools joke, these sushi bars will actually be available in the ginza store soon. the edibles, designed by chef yasuaki takagi, will be limited to customers spending more than ¥3000 JPY (about $26 USD).
