KitKat Ruby Chocolate Nuts and Cranberry - Treat Yourself Everyday
KitKat Japan was the first brand introducing "Ruby Chocolate". Until now these special KitKats where only available at the KitKat Chocolatory but soon Kit Kat Everyday Ruby Chocolate Nuts and Cranberry will be available at many supermarkets all over Japan
Japan is known for offering the most unique KitKat bars all over the world. Japanese KitKats are extremely popular souvenirs and you can find a different flavor every time you visit Japan.
In 2018 KitKat was the first company to introduce "Ruby Chocolate" to the public. A special kind of chocolate made from "Ruby Cocoa Beans". The chocolate itself has a tart yet creamy flavor which is enhanced with natural berry flavors.
Until now, you could get this special KitKat only at the KitKat Chocolatory in Japan. However, on March 25th, 2019 KitKat will launch KitKat Ruby Chocolate Everyday Nuts and Cranberry. this new version will be available in supermarkets all over Japan.
Ruby Chocolate KitKats are topped with cranberries and a variety of nuts and they will come as mini KitKat(87g 600yen) as well as a ball type KitKat(31g 158 yen) which can be used as a small snack on the go. The idea is to make KitKat Ruby Chocolate available as an everyday treat. The creamy yet tart chocolate topped with berries and nuts creates a small dessert that can be enjoyed whenever and wherever you want.
Launching with the new line will be milk chocolate KitKats topped with the same mixture of nuts and cranberries. They also will be available as mini KitKats(109g 600yen) and ball type KitKats(36g158yen). They might look familiar because they are available as Everyday Luxury Cranberry and Almond mini KitKat(109g 398yen) at stores right now. KitKat Everyday Nuts and Cranberry will offer an upgraded version of the old favorite.
If you order at the KitKat online store (Japanese), you will be able to purchase a KITKAT × Ruby Chocolate Trial Set with one unit of each ruby chocolate item including the original Chocolate Sublime Ruby for 1000 yen or the KITKAT × Ruby Chocolate Happy Party Set with four units each for 4000 yen.
