Sake Kit Kats

So, here’s a quick video we shot today after filming our second episode of Eat Your Sushi (woohoo!). We got our hands on some Sake Kit Kats, which supposedly just came out yesterday, and we gave them a shot. Get it? A shot! Like an alcohol shot! No? Was that too much of a stretch? Well, either way, here’s how they taste.

Verdict: a lot better than expected! Much better than the Wasabi Kit Kats Amber brought our way once, long long time ago. These actually taste like Sake. They smell like sake as well. I thought it was going to be significantly un-sake-like, but they actually nailed the flavour really well. After the McDonald’s Chocolate Fries, I’m starting to realize that I should trust Japan’s special edition foods.

Ok but for really real here, any of you good at science? Is it possible to get drunk off of these? If they’re 0.8 percent alcohol, if we ate ten packs of it, that’d be like a glass of 8% alcohol, no? If it takes us three pints to feel buzzed, I’m guessing then that 30 packs of Sake Kit Kats should get us feeling lightheaded, no? And don’t sugary cocktails get you drunker than regular cocktails, because the sugar does something to you? Oh hell I don’t know. I’m so bad at science. ASAPSCIENCE! I need you guys to answer. What would we get first: drunk or sick?

Anyhow, back to editing! Our computer is fixed now, and we’ve got loads of things filmed that we want to share, so we can get back to doing all we want to do. We should probably have another video up tomorrow, if all goes well. WOOHOO WE HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY TO FILLLMMMMMMMMM!!!!

  1. I know its over a year later, but I just found these in a T&T supermarket in Toronto. I paid $10 for a bag of 12. OMG IT WAS WORTH IT. Love you guys!

  2. I can’t stand real chocolate, but enjoy white chocolate, so I agree, white chocolate is not real chocolate.

  3. Hi guys I have a question about Korean body scrubs and I don’t know who else to ask. I plan to visit a Jjimjilbang with my boyfriend in a bit. I have been to one before and loved the scrub. However I don’t know if I should recommend it to my boyfriend because he has so much body hair. Can Korean body scrubs be done on really hairy people? (we are talking European hairy man here). Thanks in advance and I hope you are enjoying Japan a lot!

  4. Sake Kit Kat sounds good! When I was in Japan I tried cheesecake Kit Kat…and it was terrible. There was an option to microwave it to sort of toast it, I guess, but I didn’t have access to a microwave so…maybe that would’ve tasted better?

    If you haven’t, try some green tea Kit Kats. Those are fantastic.

  5. We’re being assigned homework now?

    Er.. at one Kit-Kat per trip and two transfers to my favorite Pub it would then take three Kit-Kat’s to get me to the Pub.

    Three ;)

  6. Hey guys, I had fun working this out.

    1. As far as I’m aware, each finger of a kitkat has a mass of 10g (simplified from 11.37002342…). 0.8% of 10g is 0.08g.
    2. Now, you said that it takes three pints for you to get buzzed. Considering Canada’s close cultural ties with England (where I’m from) I assuming that you mean three pints of 4% draft beer (I’ve worked behind a bar a few times). Under these assumptions, your three pints contain a total of 6.9 units of alcohol (thank you interweb).
    3. 1 unit of alcohol is defined as 8 grams of pure alcohol (ethanol). Therefore, your 3 pints of beer contain 55.2 grams of alcohol.
    4. The final part is simple, we divide the 55.2 grams of alcohol in your beer by the 0.08 grams of alcohol in a single finger. 55.2/0.08 = 690 fingers. Very pretty, it means that 100 fingers equals 1 unit.
    5. Finally, assuming a kitkat consists of four fingers, the number of kitkat bars that you would have to consume to get a ‘3 pint buzz’ would be 690/4 = 172.5 bars.

    It should be noted however that there is a lot of room for error in this calculation because it doesn’t factor in the fact that you’re eating whilst consuming the alcohol. The fact of the matter is that to consume that much alcohol in kitkat form, your would have to eat 6.9kg of kitkat, a feat which I highly doubt that either of you would be able to accomplish.

    In conclusion, no matter how delicious these treats are, if you want to get drunk then Sake flavoured kitkats are not the way to go.

    p.s. Not going to lie, I enjoyed this piece of homework, I think university is getting to me…

    • You forgot to account for the fact that the alcohol is getting metabolized ;)

  7. Ahaha oh dear… Here are the steps to figure out how many you need to eat to get buzzed:
    1. 0,8% of the weight (w) of one KitKat in grams = w x 0,08 = alcohol content of one bar (a) in grams
    2. Three pints ≈ 1,4 kg. Alcohol % ≈ 8% -> 1,4 x 0,08 = 0,112 kg = 112 g of alcohol needed to get buzzed
    3. Then simply 112/a and you will have the amount of sake KitKats you need to eat to get buzzed (x). If I understood you correctly. Well anyway now you know how to calculate it.

    I’ll show myself out.

    • What you forget is that the alcohol is getting metabolized as well. So you would need to eat the chocolate faster to get the actual blood alcohol level high enough.

      I am pretty sure one would get sick from so much chocolate before getting drunk.

  8. They look so good ahhhh! How much are they? And could you do a video dedicated to all the different flavours of Japanese Kitkats~

  9. I would love to try those! And I agree, white chocolate is not real chocolate.

  10. I heard some people in Japan eat whale meat and horse meat is that true. Can you make a video about the different kind of meats that people in Japan eat.

  11. I think if you pair the Sake Kit Kats with Sake you’ll get drunk much faster than estimated :).

  12. I’m with you Martina, white chocolate is fake. If it doesn’t have chocolate solids (aka cocoa powder), it’s not real chocolate.

  13. Loved the video! Quick question: when is the store gonna be back up? I want to show my nasty pride! :3

    • We’re speaking with someone here in hopes of figuring out how to do it. It’s gonna take a while, but it’s a priority, for sure :D

  14. I’m a total lightweight, so I might be able to feel a bit after eating 10 packs of these, haha.

  15. Wonder if it tastes better than that alcohol flavoured Pocky I had. I think it was some kind of rum, but I honestly don’t remember…

  16. I think you just started a new trend of drinking sake through kit kats lol

    • It’s harder to do with Kit Kats, though, I think. When we broke them apart, the coating doesn’t distribute evenly, so some have exposed wafers and break the seal needed to suck up the sake :)

    • Yupppp. Like a Tim Tam Slam but with Kit Kats and Sake. Time to coin the phrase. :)

  17. So I don’t think you’re supposed to get drunk any kind of confectionary with alcohol. But I guess if your body has a really low or bad tolerance for alcohol, if is possible to get drunk/ sick from eating too much of it. :|

  18. Tokyo Rum Raisin also has an alcohol percentage – although I don’t think it’s as high as the Sake KitKat. I’m sad these came out after my trip to Japan :< I made a mission to buy every weird KitKat flavour I could find.

  19. White chocolate not real chocolate! Yes! Haha no one else ever agrees with me >< but it doesn't come from the cocoa bean so it's a lie chocolate.
    Also, you should do the kitkat slammers with warmed sake, see how that goes haha
