The first of its kind gourmet chocolate bar, which will only be available at specialty boutiques Japan, is inspired by the classic European mendiant confection (a chocolate disc with nuts and dried fruits). It comes generously topped with crunchy almonds and dried cranberries; each piece is made by hand, according to the company, and will cost 500 yen ($4.20) apiece.

The Kit Kat Chocolatory Moleson was created by celebrated Japanese pastry chef Yasumasa Takagi, who is responsible for most of Kit Kat Chocolatory's special series like the Kit Kat Special Cherry Blossom Green Tea and Special Butter Kit Kats.
