Nestlé Japan loves making unique and interesting varieties of Kit Kats. Take, for example, the recently released gold leaf Kit Kat. Or, even more interestingly, their upcoming sake version. RocketNews24 writes:
The new Kit Kats contain sake powder which has been kneaded into the white chocolate-encased wafers, giving the chocolates all the flavour and aroma of a top-quality rice wine, while providing a light and refreshing aftertaste.
They’ll be available at convenience stores in a 3-pack, or you can get them in a special collector’s 9-piece box shaped like a Sake bottle.
Seems to me, if you’re going to buy sake Kit Kats, you spring for the bottle.
Wait a sec. There are wasabi Kit Kats, edamame Kit Kats and sake Kit Kats now. Heck, at this point, I think Kit Kat only has to make a tuna roll flavor and you’d have an entire Kit Kat sushi dinner.

Liquid lunch anyone?
The “Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned” is a bourbon distilled in East London which is described as possessing “a wondrously smooth taste, with sweetened raspberry notes and an unmistakable peanut butter finish.”
Ingredients reportedly include homemade raspberry syrup and Himalayan rock salt. The spirit arrives in a bottle that is hand-labeled, corked and then sealed with a raspberry-scented wax.

Walgreens has secured the exclusive rights to sell hot dog-flavored Pringles in their stores, and are now hoping to secure money from curious foodies.
There’s no word on how the “Hot Diggity Dog” chips actually taste just yet, but we’re guessing they won’t dethrone the tubular mystery meat that is the undisputed king of summer.

If combining instant noodles and chocolate sounds like a dream come true to you, we have some good news. Next month in Japan, Myojo Foods will be releasing a version of their Ippei-chan Yomise no Yakisoba instant noodles with chocolate sauce.
The new instant noodles will actually feature three helpings of chocolate. First off, the yakisoba sauce features coca powder and a cafe latte flavoring. There’s also a sweet chocolate sauce that you can pour over the noodles. Finally, the noodles come with chocolate chips and cinnamon toppings for a little extra sweetness.
If chocolate isn’t your thing, the company also offers noodles with a variety of different flavorings, including mayonnaise, spicy cod roe and pizza.
The price for the choco-noodles is only 195 yen (or $1.60 US). If you’re in Japan, the noodles are expected to hit store shelves on January 18.
Who says horror fans have to ditch their dark ways come the jolly holiday season?
Apparently it’s actually is possible to celebrate Christmas and your dark side at the same time. At least that’s what Johnny Larocque and Nicole Cooper did when they decided to make a creepy and awesomely twisted gingerbread house inspired by Ash vs Evil Dead and the Evil Dead movies.
What a scene! Fun for the whole family…if you’re the Sawyer family that is.

Japanese gaming company Namco has entered into the weird food business after teaming up with snack maker Calbee to create cola-flavored potato chips.
The product reportedly required eight months of development and will be available exclusively in Namco crane games as prizes.
According to the taste taste video below, the chips actually do taste like cola, which makes us wonder how consumers will choose to wash them down.

Nestle Japan is offering cat lovers the opportunity to take their relationship to the next level with a fancy meal prepared so you and your feline friend can dine together.
A chef will come to a customer’s house to cook and serve courses for kitty with Nestle’s new MonPetit cat food—beginning with a prepared pouch of MonPetit maguro and bonito, then MonPetit soup with maguro, crab, and sardines, a main course of MonPetit roast chicken with vegetable sauce and a dessert of MonPetit seafood treats.
The human will not be fed cat food per se, but will be served dishes with similar ingredients.
The service is only available for the month of December and customers must live near Tokyo and be able to cover the 22,222 yen (US$180) price tag.

After watching Master sushi chef Hiroyuki Terada perform a work of art in the video below, I’m convinced that a Big Mac is better in sushi form.
Master chef Terada transformed the burgers while still using all of the original ingredients—everything, from the buns to the patty make an appearance in the final dish.

In January, Nestle Japan is planning to release a limited edition series of 500 Kit-Kat bars wrapped in gold leaf. The $17 bars will be available exclusively at Nestle’s Kit-Kat specialty store “Chocolatory” in celebration of the store welcoming over a million visitors since opening last year.
If you’re lucky enough to nab one, maybe you should put it away for a rainy day. Wait for the price of gold to rise and sell it to some idiot on eBay and make your fortune.

A restaurant called Plan Check in Los Angeles is offering a unique “ketchup leather” on their burgers that looks like a Fruit Roll-Up.
Technically, a tomato is a fruit. So I suppose you could still call it a Fruit Roll-Up. A really, really weird Fruit Roll-Up.
In reality the slice is actually dehydrated ketchup that prevents soaking of the toasted bun and rehydrates as soon as a patty is placed on top. Brilliant.
