Country of origin: Japan

What it is: As the name suggests, these cute little KitKats are made with, or at least made to look like they contain, matcha tea, which explains the unsettling avocado-like hue. According to the ingredients, the matcha is actually “green tea paste,” consisting of green tea powder, sugar and vegetable oil. The way nature intended.

Verdict: More milky tasting than regular KitKats, with a hint of green tea, these bite-sized babies taste like they’re healthier than their mainstream counterparts. And isn’t that what’s important? Just ignore the list of ingredients and the fact you’re consuming a Nestle product and everything will be Zen.
