Did you know that carrying something with your birthstone grants you divine protection and good fortune? Nestle Japan does, and they are using that knowledge to introduce a unique and indulgent concept, the Kit Kat Chocolatory Birthstone Series.
The series, available in Japan, will release gorgeous and limited edition bars with a color scheme and flavor profile themed after the birthstone of the month it’s releasing. Each one is topped with a dollop of chocolate and mini sugar pearls that resemble the stone itself!
The first release in the series is for November’s stone, topaz. The roasted chestnut flavor has a pair of gold “topaz” gems as accents.
A new flavor will be available each month. The roster after this month:
December: Tanzanite (purple sweet potato)
January: Garnet (raspberry)
February: Amethyst (honeysuckle)
March: Aquamarine (grapefruit mint)
April: Diamond (rum raisin)
May: Emerald (pistachio)
June: Blue Moonstone (coconut)
July: Ruby (tomato)
August: Peridot (lemon)
September: Sapphire (blueberry)
October: Tourmaline (peach)
These combinations actually do sound pretty good… Well, maybe not July. We’ll have to wait for the reviews on tomato and chocolate. . . .
The Kit Kat Chocolatory is a specialty Kit Kat shop supervised by renowned chef Takagi Yasumasa. The level of consideration that goes into ingredients and recipes makes these Kit Kat bars premium candies.
