How do the Japanese have such incredible variety of snack foods and sweets?

How do the Japanese have such incredible variety of snack foods and sweets? Like if I want an apple pie flavored KitKat, I have to go to Japan instead of America. Even though America seems to consume much more junk food per capita.

What gives?

    japanese people generally like trying new foods and flavours, compared to the west where people absolutely refuse to eat anything other than their 2-3 favourite foods

    It's a marketing thing
    In Japan they like "limited edition" and "cool new flavor" things. They don't usually last though beyond the first release, so they go through newest unique versions a bunch.

    In America, most people will keep buying the absolute lowest tier of foods, so they don't need to try. Some might even complain or be too stubborn to buy new flavors.

    you'll be even more surprised they got different cup noodle flavors than the generic shit you can find in the typical american grocery store, and you'll be even more surprised that brands like nissin and maruchan have like a hundred varieties that the average american will probably never see and they're not just the shitty 20 cent instant ramen company making only beef and chicken flavor. You can go visit an asian grocery store if you're so surprised at the variety, I think america has a good number of japanese grocery stores and the prices shouldn't be so bad cause the nips are wienerslaves to big brother america.

    Japan has a cutesy flavor of KitKat for every prefecture and you have to travel there to get that regional flavor, say strawberry cheesecake. The only really amazing flavor of course is the green tea-white chocolate flavor. The rest are kind of bleh, so stop envying them.

    Their is an asian market in the US named H Mart, and you can find all the chips, soups, teas, candies and assorted stuff there. Korea and China has as much going on as Japan in the realm of interesting items, and most of the companies, exist in all of the countries. Your obsession is all that is fueling your opinon that the grass is greener. Lays does the same thing (and usually fails, icky chicken n waffles flavor), as does Mars or Frito Lay. We have elote cheetos, peppermint and gingerbread Ghiradelli, and sugar cookie poptarts. There is likely far more candy and regional variations on chips in N.Ameria than all of Asia. Go shopping.

    I have already stocked up on my peppermint peeps for hot chocolate season, and have my german influenced stash from Aldi holidays, from the cherry marzipan stollen, to the iced gingerbread discs with bits of dried ginger. I have my boxes of Sperlari italian style torrone dipped in dark chocolate, hints of orange and lemon. Chocolate dipped licorice. My freezer has peppermint stick and eggnog icecreams as well as my coffee selection with an extra bag of pumpkin spice and some winter blends

    I attribute the large variety of convenience store snacks to tiny kitchens in urban centers. There is literally no room to cook in a japanese apartment, so people tend to pick up food pretty often. So they're very easy to market to when they drop by a shop on the way home. US convenience stores tend to be road trip favorites.

    here's a better question: what is it with nips interspersing english words all over the place? they do it on all their advertisements for everything, there's a handful of english words/phrases and then the rest of the text is moon runes

      The America-Japan bromance goes both ways

    Japan has a thing where snack producers do limited runs of unusual varieties of their flagship products and only release them in small regions. So they become fun novelties for tourists to pick up while travelling in that region to bring home to family, or for locals to send to friends living in other regions. American culture favors self-love more than sharing, so the strategy would be more difficult to implement.

    You want the real answer?

    The snack food market in America is so big that if Kit Kat wants to release a blueberry flavor, they could end up literally increasing the price of blueberries world wide. Then have to just give up selling the shit if it’s no longer profitable. Smaller markets can be more experimental, without worrying about driving up the price of their ingredients.
