Brandy & Orange Kit-Kat Candy Bar
Back of a box of Nestle Japan's Brandy & Orange KitKat candy

At the convenince store today, I noticed this way to get liquored up with a candy bar. The lower-corner says that it contains 1% alcohol, and that those driving a car should be careful. (No comments are directed toward those operating heavy machinery, though.)

In the interest of being thorough for this post, I purchased the little package for 150 yen and tried them. (I'll stop at nothing to be complete and accurate for my readers, you know.) They tasted like slighly crunchy, slighly orange-ish cherry cordials, but with only the most mild taste of brandy/alcohol.

Hopefully, the can of Yebisu “The Hop” beer I bought at the same time will taste better.

For completeness, here's the back of the box:

Hmmm, must’ve skipped over some fine print there on the back:

“Not recommended in combination with alcoholic beverages by those over 40, unless you want to brew an ulcer.”

Uh, Jeff, maybe when you visit the States next summer, you might bring a case or two of these along. They sound really good and definitely lo-cal. Don’t think they have them here yet, but it’s on my list to look. And I’m referring the the Kit-Kats,not the Hop beer. But wait, on second thought…
