    Many of the flavors are designed to appeal to the younger generation. Some of the more peculiar flavors include:

    • Ginger ale
    • Soy sauce
    • Creme brulee
    • Green tea
    • Wasabi

    It's common for Kit Kats to be bought as good luck gifts in Japan, because the product name is similar to the Japanese phrase "Kitto Katsu," which roughly means "surely win."
