Japan introduces Veggie KitKat

An unusual pairing between Nestle Japan and Ito En has seen the release of a vegetable flavoured confectionery called KitKat Enhancement Vegetables. The ingredient lists boasts apple, carrot, grape, lemon, celery, capsicum, asparagus, chinese cabbage, kale, parsley, cabbage, herbs, radish, and spinach. The back of the box states that the vegetable powder is in the cream between the wafers, and the apple and carrot flavour is in the chocolate coating.

Japan is well-known for its unusual confectionery adaptations where the country has at least 81 types of Kit Kat available. Some of these blends include the green tea flavored Maccha Milk Kit Kat and strong smelling Red Azuki Bean Kit Kat which contains generous helpings of bean smothered in chocolate.

Until the invention of this carrot-apple experiment, the unofficial weirdest chocolate of the year award usually went to the Yubari Melon Kit Kat, a confectionery made of sticky melon pulp.
