While America and England (the birthplace of the Kit Kat) offer a paltry 4 or 5 varieties of the Kit Kat bar, Nestle's Japan boasts a range of Kit Kats that fuses the entire global dietary spectrum. I have vowed to try them all on an epicurean journey that has taken me to the very bowels of the Japanese confectionery industry. Come along for the ride as I cruise the platforms of subway stations across the land in search of vending machines offering up the most exotic delights for anyone willing to pay the price.
