Nestlé KitKat Ginger Ale

I picked up this particular KitKat in CyberCandy’s London store. I didn’t let the staff know who I was, so I actually had to pay for it (shocking!). I will say that it’s a nice little shop, clean and well presented with lots of interesting sweets from around the world. Well worth a visit.

Inside the box are two individually wrapped pairs of KitKat fingers (great for sharing & saving for later). I guess packaging chocolate like this is a little more expensive and a little less environmentally friendly, but it is nicer than just stuffing it into plastic wrapper. And I bet there’s a collectors market for the boxes too.

Open the wrapper and you’re greeted with the most amazing, lemony, fizzy scent. It reminds me strongly of something from my childhood. Something that I can’t put my finger on – but isn’t ginger ale. Whatever it was, I immediately fell in love with it and felt compelled to stuff it into my mouth as fast as possible.

Once again, this is a sweet white chocolate – though not as sweet as the maple KitKat. But the main flavour here is lemon, rather than ginger.

There is a hint of ginger ale going on – but it’s a ginger ale with lots of lemon and none of the spicy pepperiness that you might expect from a ginger bar. I was initially disappointed by that, but I loved the flavour anyway. It’s refreshing, yet creamy. Like lemon flavoured icing.

There’s a hint of fizzyness there too, as well as that touch of ginger. I’m not entirely sure how they managed to get all those flavours into a KitKat, but they did, and I liked this one. There’s obviously an artificial quality to the flavours and hardly a hint of chocolate, but it’s still another KitKat variety that I would buy again and again if it was available in the UK.

    I really didn’t like this bar, initially I thought it was passable but not good. Then I got some sort of unpleasant and lingering aftertaste.

    Most of these KitKats have an ‘artificial’ quality about the flavours. But what I like best about them is the fact that you tend to either love them or hate them. And if you don’t like them, there’ll be a new flavour along in the morning anyway. :)

    Don’t know about the bar(s) but I do rather like the box design on this one. In the future I’m sure you’ll be able to tilt it and see the liquid move from one side to the next.

    This one does sound interesting, but I just can’t get past the sweetness of these flavoured Kitkats. But if it actually tastes fizzy then I’d be willing to give it a go.
    Maybe if they made Creamola Foam Kitkats ….

    I definitely want to get my hands on this one if only to see if I can recognize that childhood memory that you speak of. Now off to search the good old US of A to see if I can get my hands on one!

    Good point, Dom. There are tons and tons of flavors I’m waiting to try. FWIW, I was a fan of potato.
