My Year 2017 in Japanese KitKat

Some people might already know that I am crazy about Japanese KitKat and plan to try as many as possible. Because I lived in Japan for the whole year in 2017 I was able to get a lot. When I looked back I was even shocked that I tried SOOOO MANY! 

Yes, in total I ate 20 different sorts of Japanese Kitkat this year. This includes seasonal versions but also regional ones. Here you have the overview!

    The Ginger one was so good! I've only had the Ginger, Nihonshu, and Amaou Strawberry flavors this year. It's a great idea to get a photo like this with all the packages for the whole year... maybe I'll try something similar in 2018.
