Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Definition of Foreign

When changed (even slightly), many things with which we are familiar can appear very foreign indeed.

Take the venerable Kit Kat bar. By all accounts, it’s quite unremarkable—milk chocolate on the outside and wafers on the inside.

Yet, these funky, flavored Kit Kats I found at Narita International Airport in Tokyo, Japan are so foreign that they might as well have come from another world.

    I’ve never seen this! Interesting!
    Wasabi Kit Kat?!! (first photo) Soy Sauce Kit Kat?!! Now that would be way different. Strawberry cheesecake or green tea don’t sound too bad.

      I’d take a bite out of all of ’em, but I think the only one I’d actually enjoy would be the the strawberry cheesecake flavor.

      I’m not much of a plain Kit Kat fan myself. I’d rather have a good old, non-US made Cadbury chocolate bar any day.

    Even Kit Kats in Canada are different from those in the US…which seems crazy! Great way to fulfill the requirements of the photo challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

    Nice foreign post…yes, whenever I am in Japan I scope for the different flavors of Kit Kat to enjoy. My favorite is the green tea flavor and I heard there is a bonito flavor, but I still have not found it yet.

      Of all the favors here that was also the one that piqued my curiosity the most, too. If I’d had the yen I would have brought some to try. Who knows, maybe if I’m good Santa will send me some.
