The KITKAT Sake line has a new member. The YOGURT SAKE KITKAT combines creamy yogurt-flavored white chocolate with a unique filling infused with real yogurt sake from Miyagi. It is a great snack for anyone who likes chocolate with a mellow alcohol taste.

The sake used for making this KITKAT chocolate is provided by Niizawa Sake Brewery, which is located in Miyagi Prefecture. The brewery was established in 1873.

The special yogurt sake made at Niizawa Sake Brewery offers a unique combination of the sweetness of yogurt and the sharpness of Japanese sake. This beverage might be ideal even for people who usually don't drink Japanese sake.

Just like in the case of yuzu liquor, found in the previous sake-flavored KITKAT, it's difficult to ship yogurt sake elsewhere in Japan or even the world. It needs to be constantly kept at five degrees or less as higher temperatures might result in continuous fermentation and even the likelihood of the bottles exploding.

YOGURT SAKE KITKAT introduces this unique beverage to a wider audience in Japan. This chocolate product will be available from March 16, 2020 in packs of nine mini KITKAT for 700 yen.
