In Japan, the much-loved KitKat chocolate bar has enjoyed an incredible boom in popularity over the years, so much so that Nestlé decided to create specially flavored ones unique to the Japanese market. In fact, the reason behind their newly acquired popularity is deeply linked to the theme of this round!
In Japanese, the word “KitKat” has a pronunciation very similar to that of the phrase “Kitto Katsu” (Surely win). As such, KitKat is not just a simple snack, but also a tasty token of encouragement given to companions in the hope that it helps them pass their exam or trial!
