Kit Kats are going gold.
A limited gold leaf covered edition is being created in Japan, where the chocolate covered biscuits are a craze, a religious-like experience.
The new Kit Kat is called Chocolatory Sublime Gold and is being launched to co-incide with the one millionth visitor to Kit Kat Chocolatory boutiques.
There are eight boutiques in Japan with the first launched in Tokyo in January 2014.
Sublime Gold is a one-finger Kit Kat covered in hand by 24 carat gold leaf, a very thin layer of the precious metal. The price is Yen 2016 ($A22) each.
They will be on sale at the Kit Kat Chocolatory boutiques from the end of December. Only 500 of these gold Kit Kats will be made.
Kit Kat has a very unique presence in Japan with about 30 varieties available including Green Tea, Wasabi and Purple Potato.
Closer to home a Kit Kat Studio, where you can make your own gourmet kit kat, is opening in Melbourne on Tuesday.
