You get exactly what the packet suggests. There are no surprises here.
There are a couple of new KitKat flavours out on the shelves this week – whirl flavours that blend together different tastes. The Triple Choc Whirl brings together swirls of dark and white chocolate on a milk chocolate base.
And y’know, it’s fine. It’s tasty enough, but it just tastes like a more chocolatey than usual KitKat. And if that’s what you’re looking for in life, go right ahead. You won’t be disappointed – it will taste pretty much exactly as you’d expect.
But where’s the adventure? Where’s the unique flavour? It always annoys me seeing such a bland KitKat flavour idea on the shelves in Australia knowing how adventurous KitKat flavours get in Japan. This week a co-worker brought in a few bags of a variety of KitKat flavours and it was a reminder of just how fun KitKat variants can be.
I appreciate that Australian chocolate tastes are fairly conservative – but it would be great to see Nestle try and run something a bit different. Their KitKat Choc Fudge Sundae variety was a welcome addition to supermarket shelves, but even then that’s playing things pretty safe.
It’s not difficult in Australia to find the unique KitKat flavours – just go to any half decent Asian supermarket and you’ll probably find them. Green tea and Strawberry Cheesecake both being pretty popular and tasty.
But, sure. three types of chocolate in the one KitKat. It’s fine.
