Any KitKat fan would know there’s a huge variety of flavors on the market, ranging from matcha to sweet potato to even wasabi. Now, the chocolate snack brand is adding a premium yuzu sake flavor to its roster, delivering a warm and playfully sour sensation perfect for this Fall.

For those unfamiliar, yuzu is a Japanese fruit with a taste akin to the combination of a grapefruit and lime. The country’s Koichi Prefecture is the largest producer of yuzu, and that’s where KitKat will be sourcing their ingredients from. The company has worked together with the Koichi-based yuzuzhu brewery Hamakata Shoten, which specializes in a yuzushu liqueur bringing together yuzu and sake — most other breweries use a white spirit base — to create the perfect blend of flavors. Infuse this with a white chocolate KitKat bar and you’ve got yourself a brilliant snack for the cooling seasons.

The new Bijofu Yuzu Sake KitKats is now available at retailers all across Japan, going for a price of ¥700 JPY per box, or roughly $6.50 USD. Head over to the official site to learn more, and if you’re in the area, be sure to grab one.

For more things food-related, Taco Bell has officially launched a vegetarian menu.
