With a plethora of different Kit Kat flavours in Japanese supermarkets, one would assume that Kit Kat would have exhausted almost all possible flavours for its chocolate bars. Evidently, we have been proven wrong, as Kit Kat has recently released Sake flavoured Kit Kat bars! Kit Kat has clearly outdone itself again – this special Kit Kat bar is described to have a fair waft of alcohol, while retaining its rich and smooth chocolaty taste. While other Singaporeans have to settle with generic Kit Kat flavours, your girlfriend will get to enjoy this exotic Sake flavoured Kit Kat, air flown from Japan! Can you even begin to imagine the expression on your Valentine’s face when she discovers the amount of effort you put in just to make her feel special?

We can always trust the Japanese to come up with the quirkiest products! Single cheese-like slices of chocolates were released in Japan last year. This chocolate slice has taken the world by storm as it threatens to replace popular chocolate spread Nutella. The Bourbon sliced chocolate can be used on almost anything that is edible, like plain bread and pancakes, bringing added convenience to anyone with a sweet tooth. Besides convenience, the Bourbon Chocolate slices are highly raved to be rich, creamy and even comparable to Royce’s chocolate. These chocolaty slices are definitely worth the calories! We tried it for ourselves, check out our review here!
4. Melt Chocolates Medium Dark Brushed Heart
(Approx SGD$35 before traveller tips)

This is my personal favorite! Melt’s chocolates can all be considered works of art since each chocolate heart has been personally decorated by Melt’s in house chocolatiers. With a gorgeous glimmer of gold, red and pink, the medium dark brushed Heart will definitely make your girlfriend swoon. Here come’s the best part: the chocolate hearts are actually made hollow to allow space for a personalised message! You can have Melt’s chocolatiers place a little scroll inscribed with anything you want. (Though I would personally suggest the 3 big words “I love you”). If you are prepared to have your girlfriend melt into a puddle this Valentine’s Day, post a request on Airfrov to get Melt Chocolates from London!
