(Picture: Getty/KitKat)Glorious news, matcha monsters: Green tea KitKats are finally coming to the UK.
You’ll need to be patient, though, as they’re not in stores just yet.
Bloomberg reports that Nestle’s green tea KitKat will be rolled out across Europe as a trial, starting with eight countries including the UK, Italy, and Switzerland.
That trial means there’ll be a limited supply around, so you likely won’t be able to pick up a green tea KiKat from your corner shop. But if all goes well, those little matcha delights will be sent out all over the world.
That’s 15 years after it was launched in Japan, so fans have been waiting for a while.
We don’t yet know which shops will stock the green tea KitKat, but this could point to an end to bulk-buying on Amazon then paying far too much for the shipping.
If you’ve never tried a matcha KitKat, let us explain a little about why they are wonderful.
They’re a mild flavour with a subtle hit of matcha powder (which gives the chocolate its green hue), so you don’t have to be a huge matcha lover to enjoy ’em.
They’re smaller than your normal four finger KitKat, available in three finger blocks or mini two finger blocks (at least in Japan. This could change when the treats arrive in the UK).
Green tea KitKats can be easily confused with wasabi KitKats, but must not be. They taste very different indeed.
Get excited, pals. Once the green tea KitKats are here, who knows what exciting Japanese flavour will come to Europe next?
