When it comes to innovations in food and beverage, Japan is arguably many years ahead of the United States. The relatively tiny nation of just 130 million people has more than its fair share of robot restaurants, not to mention My Little Pony-themed pop-ups, the wonder that is owl cafes, fancy $6 bananas, heart-eyes emoji pastries, McDonald's tofu nuggets, and, most importantly, a plethora of inventive candy flavors from salted salmon to sake.
And despite the fact that only about one percent of the Japanese population is Christian, their Easter candy is far superior to what you'll find in America. Case in point: They've got pancake-flavored Kit Kats. That's right — a mashup of one of the finest candy bars to ever hit the market and the most superior of all the sweet breakfast foods known to man, all shoved into one little pastel-colored package.
Dear friends in Japan, can someone please snag me a bag of these new pancake-flavored Easter Kit Kats?! pic.twitter.com/5iuyhYxCeu— C.B. Cebulski (@CBCebulski) February 24, 2016
