‘A bit of a mouthful’. That’s the best way to describe this. Both in terms of the name and the contents of the bar.
KitKat may be one of the best selling chocolate bars in the world, but I’m quite sure that this particular bar isn’t contributing a great deal to the sales figures.
Why? Because it’s awful.
I’ve never been a particular fan of KitKat, finding them a little bland, but this takes blandness to new levels.
The bar consists of a single, very large ‘finger’ of chocolate (which is more like a brick than a finger) with a thick wafer and a layer of peanut flavoured ‘stuff’. I’m not sure what the stuff is, but it’s certainly not like any peanut butter I know. It has a vague peanutty flavour, but it’s really just a thick, slightly dry, artificial tasting paste.
The chocolate is bland, the wafer is dry and the peanut stuff is icky. And all this is made worse by the design of the bar. You can’t just take a small chunk, and when you bite it, bits of wafer go everywhere.
I really don’t understand how or why they came up with this. But they did – and I feel it my duty to warn you away from it.
This is the first time I can remember that I’ve actually thrown a half-eaten chocolate bar away. Ick.
