Food Review: Kit Kat (Various Flavors)

Kit Kats, which have been around since 1935, are a chocolate-covered wafer confection created by the British company, Rowntree’s, who are based in York, England. They are now produced globally by Nestlé (who acquired Rowntree’s in 1988) in all territories, except for the United States, where Kit Kat are made under licence by the H. B. Reese Candy Company, a division of the Hershey Company. Now that we’ve discussed who makes Kit Kat, let’s get started on my review.

I really like a regular Kit Kat, more of a chunky fan than the original but I’ve always like it and it’s hard to beat, sure I have to be more in the mood for a Kit Kat than say a snickers but I love the chocolate and wafer and how the balance off one another. I think they are a fantastic treat.

Peanut Butter
This has everything I like about a regular chunky Kit Kat bar but adds in a delicious, creamy peanut butter texture that provides both a flavour and a texture boost to the whole thing and manages to do all that without tainting what makes the original so good. I like that it doesn’t replace too much of the wafer with peanut butter, just enough to add a snack of it to each bite.

Cookie Dough
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but it is amazing, a touch too sweet perhaps and it takes away from the simple but enjoyable taste of the basic Kit Kat but it’s a great treat, reminds me of birthday cake, that sensation of when you’ve maybe had too much sugar but it’s a special occasion so you overindulge. That’s what I get from this, not something I could have every day but certainly something I wouldn’t mind having again.

White Chocolate
This blends all of the deliciousness of a regular Kit Kat with a light creaminess of white chocolate. To be honest, this is significantly better than any of the others on the list, while changing what made the original so good, at least.
