KitKat Ichigo Daifuku is a traditional Japanese confection made of soft mochi, filled with red bean paste (anko) and a strawberry (ichigo). KitKat has recreated this flavor in the form of a white chocolate KitKat with an anko-flavored cream filling. The white chocolate is laced with tart dried strawberry pieces.

It is a rather unique flavor experience with vivid red bean paste adding visual appeal. The Ichigo Daifuku flavor is available in packs of eleven mini KitKats (about 400 yen) as well as a small pack of three (about 150 yen).
