This here is the last of my matcha kitkats. I’ve been saving it for ever and ever, but given that its used by date is in 2 February 2011, I figured (with a deep, heavy sigh) I’d better just go ahead and eat it, lest it should go to waste. I mean, I’m pretty sure the 11th commandment was “thou shalt not waste a matcha kitkat”. Wasn’t it?
Matcha kitkats were once in abundance. I received them as gifts from far and wide and easily stocked up at any and every 7-Eleven I came across in Hong Kong. But at some point last year, our matcha kitkat supply dried up. They were no longer available in Japan. Our web of matcha lovers scoured shops across Hong Kong and Sydney and NUDDA. Not one matcha kitkat.
What the fuck, people?
So it’s with a heavy heart that I eat my very last matcha kitkat today. But my sorrow runs much deeper than that. I really need to know if matcha kitkats will ever come back because I simply cannot fathom life without them. Hm. Drama queen much?
Anyway, if you have any inside info on this matter, I’d love to know. I need a light at the end of my tunnel.
