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.
