Whenever someone goes to Japan for vacation, more often than not, there's always KitKat to take home. These chocolate-coated wafers are are never a bad idea, and the ones from Japan are extra special. They have more variety when it comes to flavors, and the packaging is also more beautiful.

Now, there's a third reason to love Japanese KitKats because at the end of September, they'll be swapping their plastic wrappers for paper ones. Nestle Japan made the announcement on their website.

This move is in line with Nestle's "ambition to make 100 percent of its packaging recyclable or re-usable by 2025." The new paper wrapper will make its debut via KitKat's larger products:
