If you're a fan of sushi and chocolate, your wildest dreams have finally come true. Nestle launched a selection of limited-edition sushi KitKats at the new KitKat Chocolatory Ginza shop in Tokyo.

Lucky you, Tokyo. Lucky you.

Three flavours, inspired by three popular sushis, Tamago (egg), Uni (sea urchin) and Maguro (tuna), add to KitKat Japan's kooky chocolate repertoire. Before you worry about the combined taste of raw fish and chocolate in your mouth, know that these 'flavours' were only selected for the vibrant colours of their sushi counterparts. The Tamago is actually pumpkin pudding flavoured with seaweed, the Uni tastes of melon and mascarpone cheese, wrapped in seaweed and the Maguro's actually raspberry KitKats. All three sushi bars are set on white chocolate puffed rice.

CNN reports that the sets are currently offered as limited-edition until 14 February 2017 for customers who spend a minimum of 3,000 yen (approx. RM118) at the new Ginza store. Call your friends in Tokyo now.

Some background trivia: the sushi KitKats started as an April Fool's Day joke last year, but because people were so excited about the idea, the company decided to make it happen for real.
