I went for a walk along the shore of the Mediterranean yesterday in Ashqelon (south of Tel Aviv) Israel after a nice work out at the gym.

While out and about, I stopped by a little store to buy a soda, some water, and a snack of some kind. What I found was a small happiness in the form of a local-made (non-Nestle) banana-flavored KitKat. There were about five other “flavors” as well but if you know me well, you’d know that I have a slight addiction to fake-banana flavoring.

Here’s a photo showing the KitKat I bought today along side of the wasabi-flavored ones I bought last week at the Narita airport in Tokyo.

Here they are "open":

I have to say that the wasabi ones from Japan blow away the banana ones I bought today. I guess putting wasabi in a sweet is the Japanese equivalent of when you’re in Mexico and you get chili pepper and salt on your fruit salad.

I’m starting to wonder if everywhere in the world has a local-flavored version of a KitKat. Maybe I can add looking for them to search for refrigerator magnets…


  1. You are still a sugar addict! LOL!

  2. Wow Darren. Can you sense my envy through the computer? What a great opportunity for you to take such a trip. Have, fun, be safe!
