New Japanese KitKat Commercial Sees Shingo Katori Show Off His Art Skills

30.March.2020 | FOOD

Shingo Katori is an official ambassador of KitKat Japan, and he appeared in the latest television commercial for the chocolate brand which began broadcasting on March 27. The commercial was also posted on the KitKat Japan website.

 

Japan has the biggest KitKat market in the world. In September 2019, in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste, Nestlé made the decision to alter the packaging of five types of its large size KitKat chocolate bars from plastic to paper. The paper can then be used to make paper cranesーa symbol of hopes and prayers in traditional Japanese cultureーor for writing messages on to give to people.

In KitKat’s latest commercial, Shingo Katori comes together with young people to create an art piece from the paper packaging which reads, “Let’s all work hard together!” in Japanese.

  • KitKat Chocolatory to Release Beautiful New Packaging Illustrated by Misaki Tanaka

    05.April.2020 | FOOD

    Nestlé Japan is collaborating with popular Japanese illustrator Misaki Tanaka to release a new series of chocolate packaging on April 15 at KitKat Chocolatory. The concept behind the packaging is to have people choose the chocolate they want based on the words and pictures branded on the single chocolate boxes.

     

    The KitKat Chocolatory is a direct-to-consumer chain, serving premium, handcrafted KitKats made with top quality ingredients and production methods under full direction by Takagi Yasumasa―the owner and chef of LE PATISSIER TAKAGI. Its luxurious line is endless, with products ranging from the elusive ruby chocolate, whose cocoa beans give the finish product its pink colour, to volcanic chocolate made from rare cocoa beans sourced from volcanic islands.

    The words chosen on the packaging reflect the feelings one goes through in love or everyday life. Misaki Tanaka has provided the perfect illustrations to better picture those times.

    KitKat Mekakushi Chocolatory Full Box (15 Included) – ¥5,100 (Before Tax)

  • New KitKat Mini Yogurt Flavour Uses Famous Sake From Miyagi Prefecture

    05.March.2020 | FOOD

    The new “KitKat Mini Yogurt Sake” will be released on March 16, 2020. It is made with a famous brand of sake known as “Chonoko Jersey Yogurt Sake,” which is made by Niizawa Sake Brewery, a company in Miyagi Prefecture produced by Hidetoshi Nakata.

    Japan’s KitKat product line-up is popular around the world, so much so that they are often recognised as “KitKats made in Japan.” Hidetoshi Nakata is known for pouring his strength into spreading the word of Japan’s traditional industry around the world. He has also visited around 400 sake breweries across Japan. To date, he has collaborate with KitKat on around 20 chocolate bars, all made with local sake, and all of which have been top sellers. These products are helping to promote the prefectures of Toyama, Wakayama, and Kochi.

    Niizawa’s Sake Brewery’s “Chonoko Jersey Yogurt Sake” was released to help in the recovery efforts of the Tohoku Earthquake. “Yogurt Sake” has a short shelf life, and so it is a necessary requirement that it is shipped in refrigeration under 5℃ to preserve it. Because of this, the number of places it is sold at in Japan is limited, and it is also difficult to export overseas, making it a very rare type of sake. The milk comes from Jersey cattle which is used to make the milk. It’s combined with alcohol powder of the yogurt sake for the KitKat Mini. The chocolate bar has a refreshing sourness and rich flavour.

    KitKat is sold in over 100 countries worldwide. This new flavour creates the opportunity for more people around the world to try yogurt sake when they are buying KitKats in Japan.

    Speaking about the collaboration, Hidetoshi Nakata said: “I began with nihonshu, then went onto umeshu, then yuzushu. For the fourth one, I wanted to get people knowing about new possibilities when it comes to a Japanese sake that is not yet known around the world. So I chose Chonoko Jersey Yogurt Sake which is made by Niizawa Sake Brewery in Miyagi Prefecture. The yogurt in the sake has a bitterness and sweetness, which balances perfectly with the refreshing taste of the nihonshu. It’s a delicious sake that Japan can boast about, one which can be enjoyed whenever and by anyone. The sweetness of the chocolate comes together with the bitterness of the yogurt sake. We have created something that doesn’t taste just like yogurt, but yogurt sake.”

     

    He continues: “Because there is a possibility the Chonoko Jersey Yogurt Sake will ferment and the bottles break during transportation, it can only be distributed to places within Japan where it can be shipped below 5 degrees at this moment in time. It’s this very reason that its delicious taste cannot be enjoyed around the world that I want people to know about Chonoko Jersey Yogurt Sake through KitKat, and also get people knowing about new possibilities of Japanese sake.”

  • World’s First Cacao Fruit Kit Kat Reduces Waste and Replaces Sugar with Cacao Pulp

    30.November.2019 | FOOD

    Nestlé has unveiled a new chocolate recipe that replaces added sugar with cacao pulp. Japan, famous for its exciting range of Kit Kat flavours, adopted the new recipe to create the first cacao fruit chocolate Kit Kat. The Kit Kat was released for sale at the Kit Kat Chocolatory and online on November 29, 2019.

    The Kit Kat Chocolatory sells premium-quality Kit Kats made and from a careful selection of ingredients and by a special production method. The process is overlooked by Yasumasa Takagi, the chocolatier who owns LE PATISSIER TAKAGI.

    Whether your’re looking for a unique Japanese souvenir for your friends and family, something small yet luxurious for your work colleagues or even just a petite treat for yourself, the Kit Kat Chocolatory’s popular range caters for every souvenir situation.

    The new Cacao Fruit Chocolate Kit Kat uses Nestlé’s new cacao pulp recipe. Cacao pulp is the white substance surrounding the cacao beans inside the fruit. It is dried and pulverised into a fine powder to be used as a replacement for sugar. By infusing cacao pulp into the chocolate, the chocolate flavour can be tasted more fully, making for a new and exciting flavour experience.

    Many people are unaware of the unique sweet and tangy flavour of the cacao fruit’s soft and fleshy insides. Part of the cacao pulp is normally used as a sugar to ferment cacao beans in a normal chocolate-making process. However, it is still not widely sold as a flavour.

    Brazil and many other cacao-producing Latin American countries use cacao pulp to make drinks and smoothies that are easy to produce. It is also seen as an ingredient in ice creams. Some businesses have jumped on the appeal of cacao as a rarely used ingredient to make and export cacao juice. Other than this, usage of cacao pulp has remained low for a long time.

     

    Under Takagi’s guidance, a new Kit Kat has arrived at the chocolatory which spreads not only the appeal of cacao as a natural sugar and flavouring, but also encourages sustainable living through reduced food waste.

     

    Come try a Kit Kat made with cacao pulp for yourself.

  • Enjoy the Flavours of Sendai with the Zunda Shake Kit Kat

    *(Omachi  Hirose-dōri, Koji Matsushima and Monzen Matsushima) 

    Zunda Saryo spreads the delicious flavour of zunda across Japan through their variety of zunda-flavoured desserts and drinks. The Zunda Shake is an original drink made by fusing carefully selected milk with vanilla and then blending it with zunda to create an original sweet shake to represent Sendai. Kit Kat’s crispy wafers add texture to the layers of smooth chocolate, producing a divine flavour. Japan is home to more than 40 different Kit Kat flavours which are popular within Japan and overseas. 20 of those are from Japan’s regional flavour series, which is a collaboration with a regional specialty. 

    Foreigners and even Japanese visitors from other parts of the country will have never seen this new flavour before. The new Kit Kat Mini Zunda Shake flavour is sure to be the best way to experience the flavours of the region. 

     

    The cream filling is kneaded with edamame powder and sandwiched between crispy wafers. The Kit Kat is coated in Zunda shake-flavoured chocolate, creating the perfect Kit Kat flavour.  

     

    Whether you’re looking for a small snack or a souvenir, the Zunda Shake Kit Kat is perfect for you.

  • The Luxurious KitKat Chocolatory is Revamping Its Chocolate Line-Up

    03.October.2019 | FOOD

    Nestlé has announced that it is revamping its 16 products* at the KitKat Chocolatory which will be released on October 11, 2019.

    *One of these products will be released in late November

    The KitKat Chocolatory is a direct-to-consumer chain, serving premium, handcrafted KitKats made with top quality ingredients and production methods under full direction by Takagi Yasumasa―the owner and chef of LE PATISSIER TAKAGI. Its luxurious line is endless, with products ranging from the elusive ruby chocolate, whose cocoa beans give the finish product its pink colour, to volcanic chocolate made from rare cocoa beans sourced from volcanic islands, and beyond.

     

    The Chocolatory takes regular KitKats and the brand to a whole new level while still having that sense of familiarity, making their products great gifts and personal treats.

    The new line-up of 16 products is considered by four categories: 1) the chocolate type, 2) where the cocoa beans are produced, 3) the production process from bean to bar, and 4) the combination between chocolate and other ingredients. Each and every bar has been given equal attention to create chocolates with different flavours, enabling consumers to discover not only which tickle their taste buds, but the story behind each unique bar.

     

    There is a rapidly growing interest amongst consumers who want to know where their food comes from and how it’s made. When it comes to specialist chocolate products, a lot of information isn’t widely known. That’s the reason behind KitKat Chocolatory’s revamp, as well as to create chocolate that nobody has experience before.

     

    Let’s take a look at four of the new KitKats you can get your fingers on.

     

    Enjoy the Chocolate Varieties

    KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Bitter – ¥300 Each (Before Tax)

    A hallmark product since KitKat Chocolatory opened, the Sublime Bitter is couverture chocolate made with 66% cocoa. The bar is a blend of three different cocoa beans from Ghana, Madagascar, and the Dominican Republic. This addictive delight reserves the original bitterness of the cocoa while having a fruity tinge to it.

     

    Enjoy the Difference Between Cocoa Production Areas

    KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Volcanic Malakula Island – ¥400 Each (Before Tax)

    This mysterious ‘volcanic chocolate’ is made from extremely rare cocoa beans sourced from the volcanic Malakula Island which was voted one of the happiest places on earth. It has a distinct bitterness and very fragrant scent reminiscent of the ground.

     

    Enjoy the Chocolate Making Process

    KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Raw – ¥300 Each (Before Tax)

    The cocoa beans of this “raw” chocolate are cooked at a lower temperature than usual to draw out a more natural flavour of the original bean, like it’s been plucked right out of a cocoa bean farm and placed into your hands.

     

    Enjoy the Combination Of Ingredients

    KitKat Chocolatory Moleson – ¥500 Each (Before Tax)

    Finally, here is the world’s first ingredient-topped KitKat. It uses the smooth, melt-in-the-mouth KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Milk bar as the base, and is topped with sweet and sour dried cranberries and fragrant crushed almonds, creating a flavourful and textural ensemble.

    Discover a whole new world of KitKat and chocolate when the new products drop at KitKat Chocolatory on October 11.
