Japanese Kit Kat bars

Postby psidriven » 04 May 2012, 12:11

Looking to get some of the Japanese flavor kit kat bars, are they available in Taiwan? I'll be in Taipei, Taizhong, Taidong and Hualian. So pretty much all over the place.

azuki
apple
blueberry
etc..

I thought this was a type of night club.

I kinda like the green tea ones, there not being much else in the Tokyo airport that's inexpensive. And the wasabi ones are at least interesting. I don't remember seeing them in Taiwan, though. But perhaps at one of the stores offering Japanese products or maybe a Japanese supermarket, like the one in the Mitsukoshi Department Store in Tianmu.

Probably not at Daiso (a.k.a, the NT$39 store) these days, though, since those shelves were picked clean of food after a coming price increase was announced.

Good idea. Anyone have a list of the Japanese markets in Taipei?

I found the sakura macha flavored ones at a Marukai in Gardena when I went to Socal.
