I had to share this strange find on ebay... Mango Kit Kat bars!

Mango Kit Kat - from Japan
United States

Ok, is that the oddest thing or what? They are actually from Japan and while at first I thought "ewww!" I started to think about the orange milano cookies... a mix of chocolate and orange... and thought... hmmmm, maybe mango and chocolate isn't so odd. They also had cherry kit kats, chestnut kit kats, dark chocolate and orange, green tea, banana, blueberry cheese, raspberry and melon! What strange combinations in candies have you seen? Have you tried any?

hello there! i got really interested in your discussion. you see, i like kitkat bars and when i found out that they come in mango flavor, i was kinda thinking "what on earth?". lolz. :) i hope i could taste those kitkats in different flavors though coz the only kitkat being sold in our country are the chocolate flavored ones.

I have to agree... very interesting indeed. I'm just afraid of ordering a "food item" via the net, especially from another country. I'm not sure how smart that is or even how costly it must be.

I rarely eat candy anymore but the mango kit kat sounds intriguing. I love mango and Kit Kats were one of my favorites but I'm not sure about combining the two.

It seems to be getting mixed thoughts on it. I personally think it might be ok.

Kit Kats are one of my favorites and these sound delicious. I buy and sell and ebay and usually find some strange things. I'm surprised that I missed these. I've never seen any really strange candy combinations but I'm going to check out ebay for more of these. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm just a bit worried about buying from another country though, especially a food item.

Most of those flavors I can see mixing well with chocolate... I've had chocolate with most of those flavors... but not mango or melon. But I wouldn't knock it till I tried it. Actually they're probably in a store near me that has a lot of Asian imports. Countries have unusual tastes. I remember reading a long time ago that when Honda first started making cars they made them in orange to sell in the U.S., because that was a popular car color in Japan. They soon learned that orange cars were not big in the U.S.

LOL.. it is funny to see the marketing boo-boos of companies who don't do their research well. Gerber first introduced their baby food in jars to one country that basically put a picture of what was inside the container on the label. Not realizing this, they couldn't figure out WHY the baby food wouldn't sell. They finally had someone tell them that people thought there was "baby" in the jars. LMAO

White chocolate doesn't taste to me like chocolate. Still it is a wonderful treat I will not pass up on raisins and on other treats. Fudge hot and dripping over ice cream is delicious as well, with whipped cream and nuts with a bright red cherry on top. Milk chocolate for me also because I like sweet and milky stuffs.
