KitKat is beloved for its local speciality products in Japan, with foreign tourists purchasing the speciality launches as souvenirs. The brand recently tapped into the famous Japanse apple production center, Aomori Prefecture, to launch its latest KitKat innovation in Japan – the KitKat Mini Ragueneau Sasaki "Patissier's Apple Sticks" flavor.
The new variant leverages Aomori's best-sellling pastry sweets, the Patisssier's Apple Sticks, which features delicious Aomiri apples covered in light syrup within a flaky pie shell. The new KitKita Mini Ragueneau Sasaki Patissier Apple Sticks replicates this flavor by "knead[ing] powdered apples sourced from Aomori Prefecture into the cream filling between the wafers, and coat[ing] it in apple pie-flavored white chocolate."
The new offering will serve as another local souvenir for lcoals and tourists alike.
