KitKat Senses

Other countries may get new KitKat varieties on a daily basis, but here in the UK it’s been a while since we’ve seen any new flavours. So I was pleasantly surprised when my routine scan of the local sweet shop shelves turned up something new.

KitKat Senses is quite easy to describe. It’s Nestlé’s answer to Kinder Bueno. Milk chocolate finger with wafer and a creamy hazelnut filling. But it has a lot to live up to if it’s going to compete with Bueno.

KitKat Senses

As you can see, you get a single finger per pack divided into five chunks, each embossed with the KitKat logo. It looks pretty good and is still vaguely recognisable as a KitKat. It certainly looks more appetising than some KitKats I could mention.

When you bite into it, you get a satisfying crunch of wafer followed by the soft (if slightly too sweet) filling. But this is much heavier than a Bueno. There’s more wafer to get through and the cream filling just isn’t as light or smooth.

I’d still buy this again though. If I had to choose between this and Bueno, the Kinder chocolate would win every time – but don’t let that put you off trying it and deciding for yourself.

Update: Nestlé’s PR people just sent us this video of the KitKat Senses launch which apparently happened yesterday. It’s obviously a product aimed at girls, making my review somewhat irrelevant. But I still say Bueno is a whole lot nicer.

    I just had one of these today, well, two – I got another after the first. INTERESTING, its like a mutated kitkat.

    I only just saw it today, before this review. I didnt know chocolate had national release dates. Anyway whatever, its nice.

    I’m in America and we never have other Kit Kat varieties, except for white/dark chocolate, and the large size! I’m jealous!

    I hope this new Kit Kat variety will come to France! A friend of mine brought me one, and it’s excellent.

  6. I saw it and could not believe my eyes. You are right, not like Bueno but still very yummy.

  7. I have to admit, as I guy I particularly like these; they may be marketed at girls, but then again, Yorkie’s are marketed at boys and my girlfriend loves them
