Is it just me, or does this limited edition KitKat from Japan sound like an iPod accessory? Thankfully it’s not, as it would be both expensive and not a tasty candy bar.

The iStick KitKat was a summer release and unlike the other varieties, was found in the freezer section of stores. It is meant to be eaten cold. No rules apply though, you can eat an iStick at room temperature if you’d like. I didn’t eat my first one cold and I quickly found out why. The chocolate is so rich that it melts rather quickly in your hands, making one big delicious mess. Other than temperature preferences, the iStick is very different from all the other Kitkats.

The size is perfect, the in-between of a BigKat (or what they now call the KitKat Chunky) and a normal KitKat. Each finger 4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide and one package comes with two fingers in it rather than one or four. The rest of the makeup of the iStick is identical to a regular KitKat, except for the top of the bar where the wafers have been removed and a layer of fudge replaces it. Yeah, you heard me. A KitKat with a fudge layer in it. I am officially in heaven.

The taste? Wow, just wow! It is incredibly chocolatey, I could hardly believe it. It’s like eating brownie batter! The fudge layer is a lot larger than the box illustration lets on. It can take up to 1/2 of the inside of this KitKat, and boy can you really taste it! The fudge and wafers balance perfect texture-wise, and the smooth chocolate coating just adds another level of bliss. The size is perfect for eating too: not to big, not too small. It’s Ddefinitely one of my favorite KitKat bars EVER! I wish they’d make something like this in the U.S., I think it’d be really popular. I give it the Candy Addict Awesomely Addictive Candy Award!

    Oo…I haven’t seen these before — they look really good! I’ll have to start checking the freezer section once the weather warms up.

    In the summer, I often have to keep my KitKats in the freezer anyway because it gets so hot. I found freezing actually improved the Uji-kintoki Milk KitKats, which were too sweet for me otherwise.

    I am a little confused by your comment “one package comes with two fingers in it rather than one or four”. Every Kit-Kat I have had has had two fingers in it. The Kit-Kats with two fingers are the normal ones.
    This Kit-kat does sound good though. Fugde..mmmmhhh…

    Catherine, I mean that by here in the US, Kitkats are four connected wafer “fingers” and the Chunky varieties are only one long wafer “finger”. Does that make more sense now?

    Do they sell the I-KitKat in the US? And is it only in the summer if they do? One last thing, do they sell it all over the US?
