Now in Season

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.

      1. How much would you want me to send you? For a few packs + shipping?

        I figured as much but I want some Japanese kitkats, those salt caramel ones look terrific. And also any flavors you may finnnnd.

    1. so, it won’t let me reply to your second comment…boo.

      Kit Kats tend to run around 300 yen depending on the store. I am not sure how much shipping would cost from here to your neck of the woods.
