However, the practical joke became a reality as gifts containing these chocolates were given away to 500 customers to help celebrate the opening of the company’s stand-alone Chocolatory boutique store in Ginza in 2017.
Now Nestlé has just announced the opening of a brand-new Kit Kat Chocolatory, this time inside Itami Osaka International Airport, and to celebrate the boutique will be offering some very special items that won’t be available elsewhere!
There’ll be two “Special Assortment” boxes containing three lots of four “Chocolatory Special” series chocolates. One will feature the lucky image of Ebisu, the god of fishermen and luck, especially appropriate for business purposes...
... and another will be emblazoned with the word “O-kini,“ which means “thank you” in Osaka’s Kansai-region dialect.
What will have customers really flocking to the new store is the chance to receive one of 570 Sushi Kit Kats, which will be handed out to the first 30 customers who spend over ¥3,000 (US$27.96) every day from the store’s opening on April 18 through to May 6, 2018.
