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?!
