Sorry that I haven't been updating this blog for almost a month, I've been very busy and went on a bit of a hiatus. I suppose I should have posted a notice to you guys before I left, ne? Once again, sorry for not letting you guys know that I had to take some time away from updating.
Anyway, I'm back now so hopefully I can update more regularly from now on.
And what better way to revive this blog than going back to one of my all-time favorite sweets; Kit Kat!And yes, it's another review on a Japanese KK flavor (most of my KK reviews are of Japanese KK anyway).

Roasted purple sweet potato is a popular light snack in Japan, and any purple sweet potato confectionery is always a sure hit, and it certainly is the case with this purple sweet potato KK!

lovely smooth chocolate coating infused with just the right and accurate amount of purple sweet potato flavor, with more purple sweet potato choc between the crispy wafers. Divine! And as you can see, the choc coating also had a pretty soft shade of pastel purple colour to it.
I absolutely love this KK, it's one of my all-time fave KK flavors!It's another special regional flavor from Okinawa Prefecture, it's also one of the most popular KK flavors in Japan, and once you've tried it, it's not hard to understand why.

My rating (overall):

I ordered this mini bar @ NapaJapan, it was pricey though, about US$2.50 for 1 mini bar of this. But special regional flavors are typically more expensive because of their specialty, and often, limited availability.

I love food, especially desserts & sweets, junk food and Japanese cuisine! But I'm a foodie who loves all kinds of good food in general ^_^
I like to review & critique about various food, sweets, snacks & drinks I have tasted/tried based on my OWN personal opinion & preferences. So you may not agree with some of my opinions & ratings.

Please take note that I am not a serious food "critic", reviewing & critiquing foods is merely a hobby I like to do in my free time ^_^

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
