Sake Kit Kat Bars – Direct from Japan to Canada – Japanese sake chocolate bars

I just wrote about a cool online retailer named Bokksu, which supplies some of the most popular Japanese Kit Kat flavours right to us here in Canada! One of the most popular gift Kit Kats from Japan is definitely their Sake Kit Kat bars.

So what are Sake Kit Kats? These premium Kit Kat bars for adults contain actual sake – that delicious Japanese rice drink that is made by fermenting rice. Sake is an important part of Japanese culture, and the serving of it is often ceremonial, where the sake is warmed gently before serving.

OR…you can have your Sake in Kit Kat form! Sake lovers will love that their favourite candy bar comes in this delicious flavour that does indeed contain real sake. Please keep in mind that these candy bars are for adults, and not for children, as they contain alcohol. We disovered three unique Sake flavors that we wanted to share with you.

  • Kit Kat Yogurt Sake bars are truly luxurious. This bar is flavoured with real yogurt sake, produced at Niizawa Brewery in Miyaga Prefecture. Nestle Japan came up with this new flavour to celebrate this beverage. $20.00 for 9 pieces. (Premium)
  • Japanese Kit Kat – Sakura Nihonshu Sake Kit Kat bars – Sakura sake is a traditional springtime drink in Japan! Why? Because it is light and delicious with a light floral overtone. The wafers in this bar are lightly salted to offset the sweetness – a perfect balance. Contains actual sake, and 0.07% alcohol content in each bar. $12.00 for 12 pieces.
  • Japanese Sake Kit Kats – “Japan Sake” – The first of Nestle Japan’s foray into premium sake Kit Kats, these bars are made with real sake from a renowned sake brewery in Toyama. Made with Masuizumi sake. Contains a full 0.4% alcohol content per bar, so eat responsibly please! $20.00 for 9 pieces (Premium)

Your love of Kit Kats, chocolate, and Japanese sake can all be satisfied with these delicious bars. Bokksu ships to Canada, so have fun shopping for and tasting these premium Sake bars. Enjoy!

Silicone Tea Infusers – 3 Cute styles to choose from

Brewing up a perfect cup of loose leaf tea is easy when you have the right silicone tea infuser to help along with the job. Simply pop open the infuser, fill with your favourite loose leaf tea – whether black tea, green tea or an herbal tea – and then pop into your cup. Fill with boiling water, and in only a few minutes you have a delicious, fresh hot cup of tea!

Silicone infusers are ideal to use, because they’re easy to clean! The silicone is also easier to use – customers say that the lids of these infusers are easier to remove than the traditional metal lids, which can be a bit cumbersome. (I find the little metal clasps on the traditional tea infusers are what makes them such a pain to deal with.)

Argon oil shampoo (Argan oil) – Excellent for dry hair

Argon oil shampoo is excellent for adding lots of moisture to your hair, which is particularly helpful if you have naturally dry hair. Argan oil is derived from the argan nut of the argan tree, which grows in Morocco. That’s why the original argan oil products were all labelled as Moroccan argan oil – that’s where this stuff grows naturally!

The reason argan oil shampoo has become so incredibly popular is that it can add moisture to hair in a way that few other ingredients can. For centuries, people in Morocco ate argan oil, because it’s not only got a delicious, mildly nutty taste, but it also has amazing health benefits! For your hair, though, you’ll be able to tell a difference in the texture – argan oil can help to smooth out your hair. This is perfect if – like me – your hair tends to be a bit frizzy.

Argan (Argon) Oil shampoos available online

We’ve searched for some of the highest rated, and still reasonably priced Argan oil shampoos available online. When possible, we give you two different options of where to purchase, so that you can choose the retailer you’d prefer to support. Okay…happy shopping, y’all!

OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo

OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo

$11.29 @ Well.ca or $6.99 @ Amazon.ca; 385 ml bottle

A consistent best-selling shampoo, this one gets rave reviews from customers! This shampoo claims to help restore moisture and health to even the most dry, damaged hair.

Here’s my favourite review: “Creamy shampoo that smells nice too. It made my hair silky and soft. Very nourishing for split ends.”

Live Clean Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo

Live Clean Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo

$13.99 @ Well.ca and on sale for $9.98 @ Amazon.ca (Regular price $12.49) – Family size bottle 750 ml

  • Excellent when used together with the matching conditioner to create softer, more manageable hair.
  • Nice light, natural scent that’s a mild nutty scent – smells lovely.
  • No SLS in this product (sodium lauryl sulfate.) If you’re trying to avoid this detergent ingredient, you can purchase this shampoo knowing there’s no sulfate in it at all. (So, the shampoo will not lather up as much BUT your hair will get just as clean.)

If you’re looking for an argan oil shampoo, then the two we’ve listed above come very highly recommended. You’ll get an awesome new shampoo, and your hair will look moisturized and beautiful. Hooray for good hair days!
