Japanese Baked Kitkats!

Hi everyone!

So, while we were in our Airbnb in Osaka, we decided to walk through a supermarket. We love going to supermarkets in other countries! I’m always interested in seeing what people eat in the area. You can go to the restaurants and bars in the area and see what people are eating there, but there’s tons of stuff that people eat at home that isn’t restaurant friendly, right? Baked Kitkats seem to be one of those things.

We were really confused when we saw the bag, because we can’t read Japanese, so we did our best to guess what it was all about based on the pictures. Fortunately, when we took the bags to our friends who understand more Japanese than we do, our suspicions were confirmed. And fortunately for us they had a toaster oven as well. Shazam!

Now, for a more detailed breakdown of our thoughts on the taste of these baked Kitkats, more than just the shock and awe we displayed in this video, let me say that the formula still needs some work. The taste is great. The crystallizing sugars are a lovely addition. But maybe we need to get a better toaster oven or something, because the tops got crispy while the bottoms were still melty. I’m not sure how you can pick these up without making a mess. If it was crystallized all over baaahhhhhhggghhhHHHHHHHH it’s be perfect, but the different consistencies on the top and the bottom make it hard to eat. It’s definitely better to talk about than it is to eat. Baked Kitkats: who thought of this?!

  1. This looks oddly appealing. I wonder if this works with any kind of kit kat.

  2. I almost got the cheesecake ones yesterday, but decided to wait. I also almost got the ice cream kind, but I used all my power to not get them as well. I’m OK. I just needed to restrain myself.

  4. I wonder if it would have the same affect if you just used a brulee torch. Hmm, maybe not? But on a side note: If Simon ever decided to shave his beard, seeing his bare face again would be so strange. It’s weird when I watch older videos.

    • You know, I think about trimming the beard really short, to something that’s like one month of growth, instead of as long as it is now, but it’d feel weird. When I look back on our older videos I’m always confused by who that manchild is standing next to my wife. I MUST KILL HIM!

  5. I’ve had the purin one and I have the cheesecake ones in my dresser for “emergancies” (more like, when I find a good toaster oven to use). You can eat these kit kat raw. I ‘ve done it as an experiment for both of these flavours. But it doesnt taste as awesome as having them baked.

    Funny thing, at my last part-time job, I used the super expensive high powered oven to cook the kit kat when there wern’t any customers for long periods of time. Though to be fair, that thing was always on, so I left it in for like 10 sec.

    • Yeah! I just saw the cheesecake ones here in Japan yesterday as well. They have a huge kitkat wall at the store we went to. So many more flavours than I thought!

  7. I discovered these couple years ago when I was living in Japan. Though the pumpkin one was just the regular type even though it looks like the exact same Halloween one… As for the baked kitkat, it wasn’t the sweet potato flavour you tried but I think we got a creme brulee/purin one. We tested it with my roommate and it was pretty good! And at that time we were as mindblowned as you guys are now! :D

  8. Guys if you’re still looking for a place to by cheese, SSG at chungdam has a great variety. Also I think Paris Crossiants have a variety, but I’m not sure, but where I live,(the Korean French town) the paris crossiant there has a huge variety.

  10. Haha~ The “cheese bread” one is actually sweet potato. It says it in katakana on the front of the bag. :D

  11. Gee guise, I’m not so sure about this. S’mores is about as adventurous as we get on this side of the Pacific so far as heated sweet treats. These heated Kit Kats would take some getting used to.

    First comment! Score!

    • You guys should hit America when the State Fairs are going on … you would not believe the things that get breaded and deep fried – Snickers bars, bubble gum, butter (I kid you not), coke (still trying to figure that one out), bacon, jelly beans, Cadbury creme eggs, pizza, cool-aid, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, salsa, pop tarts, cheese cake, oreos, and jambalaya to name a few.
