First it was the disastrous Shapes flavouring debacle, and now it’s Nestle in Japan.
Twitter has taken Nestle down a few pegs after it released its latest flavour – melon and cheese – which is now available for anyone bold enough to try them at Japanese airports.
According to the Mirror Online, the curious treats were launched in a limited released last week, but most of the fans on social media agree that this flavour should never have made it past the brainstorming session in Nestle HQ.
“This should not be a thing,” @SickChirse tweeted, while another more succinct user simply said, “Ew”.
@Japan_Australia I’m a big fan of the various flavours of Kit Kat that come out in Japan, but I might pass on melon and cheese… 😛

Some were willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt and give it a crack, putting their faith in the combination of melon, white chocolate and mascarpone cheese.

The strange snack is one of three new flavours launched in Japan including Japanese Strawberry and Uji Matcha, which uses the green tea powder.
Keep your fingers crossed this doesn’t take off, otherwise it’s on its way to our shores here in Oz.
