Friday Favorites: Giveaways!

I’m cheating a little bit with the title of this post because, to be honest, I’m stuck in that time warp of international travel. You know, the kind where you’re not quite sure what day it is. It’s Friday somewhere, or at least pretty close to it!

To celebrate the new year, and since we’re in Japan, we thought we’d give away our favorite candy: Kit Kats!

Apparently Kit Kats are the most popular candy bars here, because “Kit Kat” sounds like the Japanese phrase “Kitto Katsu,” which translates to something like “to certainly win” (possibly a variation on ftw? hehe). Kids take them into exams for good luck. We’re taking them into our next year of business for good luck, and we’d like to extend the good luck to you.

To make Kit Kats even more fun on this side of the world, there is a HUGE assortment of flavors, many of which are seasonal. The four we are giving away are green tea (sakura maccha latte), strawberry tarte, a “regular” version, and my personal current winter favorite, otona, which is a blend of dark cookies and white chocolate. Cookies and cream Kit Kat! They. Are. Delicious!

Btw, as far as I know, you cannot get green tea Kit Kats in the States. I did find an online retailer once, but they were selling it for 3x the normal price, plus an obscene amount for shipping.

So, how to enter! Leave a comment below telling us your favorite place to travel (or where you would like to go) and why.

You have until 11:59pm Eastern time on Sunday, January 1, to enter/comment. A winner will be chosen using random.org (comments will be sorted by time/date) on Monday, January 2. Please also note the following rules:

  • Only entry per person is allowed, but feel free to comment as much as you’d like!
  • You must have a valid US mailing address. We didn’t want to exclude our international readers, but we also wanted to avoid customs and shipment delays, so if you live overseas but have relatives in the US, feel free to enter!
  • We are not responsible for lost, stolen, or late shipments. Or candy bars damaged during transit. Or postal service employees eating candy bars.
  • Winner will be announced on the blog and will have 48 hours to email us with their valid mailing address (or we’ll choose another winner and you’ll be sad).
  • Should any conflicts arise, we reserve the right to make the final decision.

Good luck, and here’s to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!

  • Abby Grace - Green tea Kit Kats? That’s so random! However, I love sugar in any form. So here’s my entry: my favorite place to travel is ENGLAND! Big shocker, I know. Second to the UK though is St. Lucia. We went there for our honeymoon and I miss it so badly!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth J. McTear - Ha! I love Kit Kats, and I’ve never seen the green tea or strawberry ones before. How cool! I’d like to travel to Turkey. It’s a cultural, culinary and historical crossroads! Additionally, I worked for a time at the Upenn Anthro & Arch Museum working on their Goridan (Turkish) textile project. I love the decorative tradition there and would love to experience it first-hand.ReplyCancel

  • Alan Bautista - When it comes to places I’ve already traveled to, I rank San Francisco as #1. Although it’s too local for most travelers who live in California, the variety of sights, scenes, and culture (especially food and art!) make it desirable to visit.

    For places I want to travel that I haven’t been to already, I’m going with Germany. I’m just curious to see what efficiency looks like.

    Aside from the contest, I’m totally diggin’ this mobile layout. Looks pretty sick on my iPhone!ReplyCancel

  • Anny Nguyen - I WANT SOMEEEEE! I’ll play :)

    My favorite place to travel thus far is Melbourne, Australia primarily because it feels like home away from home, helps that the boyfriend is there and caters to all my needs. I’ve yet to ventured outside of Melbourne >.< sad, I know, considering I've been to Oz 4x! I'm planning on going for graduation so maybe i'll make it to the reefs before they disappear.ReplyCancel

  • Trevor Angood - der der der :)

    My favorite place to travel has to be Rome. I went in the summer after my junior year in high school and visited a lot of the touristy places. I would definitely want to go back now, even more so because I teach World History, because of knowing a lot more of the history represented after taking courses in the Roman Empire.

    Happy New Year!!ReplyCancel
