【看CP學英文】日本奇巧巧克力(Kit Kat)繼2004年推出抹茶口味掀起風潮後,現在又推出另一款「綠色」巧克力新風味,然而,這次的口味可能沒有之前那麼容易下嚥。

Following the 2004 debut of the “Matcha Green Tea Kit Kat,” Japan has released a second green chocolate combo that will surely challenge customers’ palates: the Wasabi-flavored Kit Kat

據報導,目前雀巢已推出將近350種口味的奇巧巧克力,而背後的主因為日本便利商店需要不斷變動的擺設方式。

According to media reports, Nestle has released over 350 flavors to date, and the main reason behind such a wide variety of products is due to Japanese convenience stores’ constant demand for new items.

為了維持品牌銷售量,便必須不斷想出新口味和新點子;芥末口味的奇巧巧克力就是這麼誕生的。

To keep up, new flavors and ideas are in great need and that’s where the wasabi flavor comes in.

根據日本媒體報導,田丸屋本店是一家位在靜岡縣的芥末專賣店,日本芥末有將近80%都是在此區製作,於是它們和奇巧聯手打造出最能代表當地的口味。

According to local Japanese media, a specialty wasabi shop, Tamaruya Honten, located in the Shizuoka prefecture which produces 80 percent of Japan’s annual wasabi supply, partnered with Kit Kat and created the hybrid local flavor best representing both companies.

至於芥末奇巧巧克力到底好不好吃,外國人也積極參與論戰,許多人表示沒有想像中的嗆辣,也有人說雖然聞起來明顯的是芥末味,但是因為還是有白巧克力,吃起來還是很甜。

As for the million-dollar question of whether people outside Japan find it delicious or not, some described it as not extremely spicy, while others say though the smell is recognizably wasabi, it actually tastes sweet thanks to the white chocolate.

國外網友也在推特上大大讚賞,寫道:「這口味在一般商店買不到,完全值得生氣」。

Westerners also took to complimenting the flavor on Twitter, with one writing, “Yes, you should be mad you can’t find this in a regular store.”

然而也有網友質疑奇巧的最新搭配,並表示這口味他們「先不要」。

However, others seem to question the novel combination, commenting, “Nope. Not touching that with a ten-foot pole.”
