  • You know? I could eat a KitKat any time of day!

  • In fact , second only to actual cats, the great candy bar that's meant to be shared is the most-talked-about topic on the internet!

  • And there's good reason too.

  • In Japan there're always no less than 3 flavors of KitKats in circulation.

  • Of course there's the regular kind, a dark chocolate and green tea.

  • You can find those at any supermarket year round.

  • But then there are special kinds of flavor always in rotation.

  • Pumpkin, sake, mint, apple pie.

  • I like that one because its shaped like the Easter Bunny's ears.

  • This new one is a little strange.

  • It's got nuts on it, that's cool!

  • But there's only one bar?!

  • Now I guess that's how they get you.

  • It says it came from the KitKat Chocolatory.

  • What's that?

  • A chocolate factory?

  • A laboratory?

  • Maybe it's a little bit of both, but it's an actual place!

  • There are several Chocolatories across Japan.

  • You can find one in Sapporo, Osaka, Kyoto, Fukuoka and three in Tokyo.

  • The three in Tokyo are at: Ikebukuro Station, Shinjuku Station, and Tokyo Station.

  • If you live in Japan or are just passing through, you'll likely be at Tokyo station at some point.

  • It's a major hub for the Shinkansen, also known as the bullet train.

  • Honestly there isn't much to do around the station, but underground is a whole town unto itself with all kinds of shops and cool things to eat.

  • Tucked away in all of these under Tokyo station is a Chocolatory!

  • At these shops you can buy specialty-made KitKats.

  • The flavors change often and once they sell out of the batch that they've made for the day, that's it, all gone!

  • The store has a handy menu to help you out.

  • On this day they had strawberry, maple and butter.

  • Oh... and can we talk about price for a minute?

  • I know it's a fun and cool thing, but really?

  • 432 yen for one pack?!

  • It's a lot of money for a little bit of joy.

  • In addition, the special flavors come in cool premium style boxes.

  • There's also a cool display window showing KitKats throughout history, in many colors and varieties.

  • And hey did you notice?

  • The chandelier hanging down from the ceiling is shaped like KitKats!

  • So if you pass through Tokyo station or any where else where there's a KitKat Chocolatory, pick up a KitKat and give yourself a break!

You know? I could eat a KitKat any time of day!
