Gouda Cheese: Japan

As part of a marketing ploy, Nestlé began offering limited-edition Kit Kats in Japan in 2007. Since then, more than 200 flavors have surfaced, and they’ve become coveted souvenirs among tourists and locals. Soy Sauce remains the most popular flavor. According to collectors, one of the most difficult to find is European Cheese, which contains 58 percent Gouda by weight, giving it a smoky, salty, and sour taste. Expats and Americans can find it online at J-List and eBay.
