Have a break...have a Kit Kat sushi
Japan is known for its love of weird and wacky Kit Kat flavours, but Nestlé might have just taken the biscuit with its sushi version.

What originally started out as an April Fool’s Day joke last year, now appears to have become reality.

Kit Kat obsessives in Japan claim there have been more than 300 varieties of the four-fingered snack to hit the shelves since 2000, with the sushi offering now available at the new Kit Kat Chocolatory Shop in Ginza, Tokyo.

The concoctions come in three flavours, all inspired by classic sushi types: tuna, sea urchin and egg.

The tuna version is made of raspberry Kit Kat’s on puffed white chocolate rice, the sea urchin flavour uses Hokkaido Melon and mascarpone cheese Kit Kats wrapped in seaweed, and the egg sushi is a pumpkin pudding-flavoured Kit Kat with puffed white chocolate-covered rice.

According to Nestlé Japan’s Miki Kanoh, the Kit Kat sushi will only be available until February 14 as a bonus for customers who spend at least JPY3,000 (US$2.65).

The new Ginza branch is the ninth chocolatory. Nestlé says it will feature more luxurious services, in keeping with Tokyo's smartest neighbourhood. 

A cafe is also planned to open next month and cutsomers will also be able to create their own original KitKats using the toppings of their choice.
