Salt and lemon are a popular summer flavor combination in Japan and the region of Setouchi is famous for both. The salt is meant to replenish the salt you lose when sweating, while the lemon gives you a refreshing mouthfeel.
The Setouchi Sea Salt and Lemon KitKat come as a small set of three KitKats (about 130 yen), which can usually be found in most convenience stores, as well as a bag of eleven mini KitKats (about 400 yen), which will be available at selected supermarkets.
It offers a tart, white chocolate based lemon flavor with a distinct sea salt note. The flavor becomes slightly more rounded when served chilled.
KitKat hasn't announced if this flavor will be around all summer. So make sure to grab it when you see it somewhere.
