Baked potato, wasabi, pumpkin — this chocolate brand is raising the flavour “bar.”

KitKat has just released a pumpkin pie flavoured bar — but the U.S.-only release means Canadians will have to stick to their cookie dough chunkys and KitKat classics for a while longer (sigh). While Kit Kat’s Canadian candy-makers have been upping their confectionary game with spin-off flavours of their signature bars like orange, cookie dough and cookies and cream, we’re still pretty far behind the curve when it comes to flavour options.

The name Kit Kat sounds like the phrase “kitto katsu to” in Japanese, which roughly translates to “sure to win.” As a result, the chocolate bars have become a token of good luck that are given as gifts to friends and family, particularly to students about to write final exams. (According to Nestle, one in three Japanese students buys one before an exam.)

Thanks to the Kit Kat’s popularity in Japan, flavours there have become a lot more inventive. Here are just a few of the Kit Kat flavours available in the world that we’d like to break us off a piece of. (Well, maybe not the cough syrup one.)

Choco banana

A little fruit, a little chocolate, sounds like a perfectly well-balanced snack.
