Green Tea Kit Kat Nuggets at a Tokyo 7-11

Scenes from a Tokyo 7-11

In Food Travel, Japan by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch6 Comments

There’s nothing like a Tokyo 7-11 for ATMs, snacks and even sushi. Best of all, you can buy green tea Kit Kats and other Japanese candy.

Green Tea Kit Kat Nuggets at a Tokyo 7-11

A special request to Hershey’s – Please make Green Tea Kit Kat Nuggets available in the United States!

You’ve just arrived in Tokyo on an international flight from the U.S., and you’re jet-lagged. You could only stay awake so long, and now you’re groggy from the nap that you vowed not to take. It’s 3 am, but it feels like 3 pm due to the time difference.

You’re hungry, but there’s not a whole lot of food options open at this time of the morning. You could go to a late-night ramen shop except that you want more variety, a wide selection of drinks and a gallery of sweets. Fortunately, for you, the answer exists on almost every street corner, regardless of your decision of where to stay in Tokyo.

The Tokyo 7-11.

That’s right. The American convenience store staple is huge in Japan. So, chances are that you will find yourself at a Tokyo 7-11 if you are looking to withdraw money, find some liquid refreshment or just satisfy some late-night munchies. However, Tokyo is on the other side of the globe, and there are some major differences with the products that one can find on the shelves in Tokyo.

So, in order to clarify those differences, we at 2Foodtrippers bring you:

  1. Excellent! I’ve read about the KitKats, but the other stuff is an interesting surprise. 😉

  2. nice post, never been to tokyo before, will go there one day.

    1. You really should add it to the top of your travel wish list. Tokyo is an amazing city.

  3. I just got back from a business trip to Japan and the 7-11s were a lifesaver for their ATMs – there are a surprising lack of ATMs in Japan! As for green tea kitkats, I didn’t see nuggets but I brought a whole box of them home with me. Amazing!

  4. This brings back so many good (and bad) memories of trying to navigate Japanese labeling and trying to figure out, “Could I eat that?” Of course, that question isn’t limited to just 7-11.
