I’d been on the look out for these Zunda KIt Kats ever since I first heard about them last year, and @AkiYanagi finally hooked me up when I was in Tokyo in December.
So that begs the question… what the heck is “zunda”?!
Google tells me that zunda is a local treat in Sendai and Fukushima,…
Sizzling has been replaced by the sound of nine angry robots doing it.
These Kit Kats are supposed to taste like the popular Japanese snack “yaki imo”, which are baked or grilled sweet potatoes…
Oddly enough, it tasted more like maple syrup to me, which is a Western style of preparation not usually seen in Japan.
In any case… pass.
