Otona no Amasa Black KitKat is another KitKat with a ‘rich and genuine’ flavour made specifically for the adult palate.
A higher cocoa content is used for the chocolate enrobing these dark brown — almost black — bars.
A bite of this Otona no Amasa Black KitKat reveals a dark chocolate on the outside that’s barely sweetened, but still melts in your mouth. It’s probably somewhere around the 70% cocoa content mark (you lose any trace of that enjoyable melt-in-your mouth quality by 86%, I’ve recently discovered; it tastes like cardboard). The darkness gives a more bitter initial flavour, but this sweetens quickly as you reach the milk chocolate cream sandwiching the two wafers. It’s an immensely enjoyable KitKat that leaves a clean mouthfeel of dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness, a step up from the more cloying qualities of milk chocolate.
And of course, made all the more enjoyable by having a somewhat complex paper craft model to assemble.
The box of Otona no Amasa Black KitKat contained 10 mini bars and a paper craft model for the D51498 steam locomotive. It was manufactured in Japan and purchased in Tokyo, Japan in 2014.
