I found all of these beauties in a 7-11 in Kanazawa and just never got around to posting them. I don’t really get the whole appeal of the cookies plus types of Kit Kats, but then again, I don’t get a lot of the Kit Kat flavors Japan comes up with.
Ohagi are rice balls similar to mochi and are covered with sweet beans, sesame, or so on. The name, ohagi, came from autumn flower, hagi (bush clover.) Same rice balls cooked in the spring equinox are traditionally called botamochi. The name, botamochi, came from spring flower, botan. Nowadays, it’s common to use the word, ohagi, instead of botamochi throughout the year. Kinako I explained in a previous Kit Kat post.
