Kitkat Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge Review
It's taken them a while, but finally Nestle have come to their senses and released a Salted Caramel Kitkat variety. Hurrah right?! It's a shame they won't bring back the Kitkat Caramac from years ago (Australia are now lucky enough to get a Kitkat Gold which is pretty similar!), but I'm sure we can make do with this instead.
Available from Sainsbury's for 50p, this presumably replaces the New York Cheesecake Kitkat Chunky from last year and is described as "Crispy wafer finger with a salted caramel fudge flavoured topping covered in milk chocolate".
Now, as everyone knows I can't eat gluten, so I gave this to a friend to let me know his thoughts.
Opening the wrapper, there's a very powerful and overwhelming aroma of caramel.
Splitting the chunks apart, the salted caramel fudge layer is visible just above the wafer and is somewhat like a paste.
How does it taste? Well according to my friend "it's very sweet, with a strong buttery caramel flavour, that is vaguely salty and quite butterscotch-like. It's a bit overly sweet and will make your teeth hurt a bit, it's just as well Kitkat bars have shrunk in size! Still, if you like salted caramel this is pretty indulgent and will definitely cure your sweet tooth. A tasty bar, would buy again".
So there you have it! Now Nestle, maybe you can consider bringing the Kitkat Gold to the UK please?
8.5 out of 10.
Are you excited to try this bar? If you've tried it what did you think? Let me know in the comments!
