As soon as you open the wrapper you will be greeted by the scent of flowers and sake. The cream between the wafers is sakura scented and flavored. The wafers are covered in a pink coating of white chocolate mixed with powdered Japanese sake. The KitKat tastes exactly like it smells. A strong sake flavor fills your mouth followed by the taste of Sakura.
