Each box comes with nine individually wrapped pieces of chocolate

Each serving of sake flavored Kit Kat contains 0.4% alcohol.

The sake in the chocolate comes from the Masuizumi brewery. According to Rocket News, it was chosen from a list of 100 Japanese breweries to provide the chocolate’s crucial ingredient.

Nestle Japan describes the taste as elegant, with the sake complementing the sweetness of the white chocolate. In addition, the chocolates will also contain an enticing sake aroma.

To help with its creation, Nestle enlisted retired Japanese footballer Hidetoshi Nakata. Both a sake enthusiast and alcohol entrepreneur, Nakata released his own sake brand “N” earlier in February 2016.

The chocolates will go on sale in Japan around mid-September. It will retail for 700 yen (approx. S$8.60). Each box houses nine pieces of individually-wrapped chocolate.
