Yet another orange flavoured product that is very yummy! Kit Kat is one of those products that is a cross between a chocolate and a biscuit, and while I primarily think of it as a chocolate, I usually only find it in the biscuit sections of supermarkets. If you've read some of my previous reviews, you'l know that I love oranges and generally anything orange flavoured, so it's no surprise that I grabbed this item when it first came out, quite a while ago.
The orange scent is not too overpowering, but it is owerful enough that you can smell the orange even when the kit kat is still wrapped. It hits you a bit more when you open the wrapper. Again, the taste of the orange is not overpowering, and reminds me very much of Terry's Chocolate orange, only in wafer format. I definitely prefer this to normal kit kat.
The Kit Kat itself is a long, thin, rectangular shape, and is basically a wafer coated in orange flavoured chocolate, with more orange flavoured chocolate in between the layers of the wafer. I am not much of a chocolate-tooth and so I find that Kit Kats contain not too much chocolate, but just enough to satisfy a mild chocolate need at the time. Having it in wafer format, reminds me a little bit of eating ice cream in a cone, which again is something that I enjoy about Kit kats.
It is wrapped in ain foil and then aother wrap around it with the Kit Kat name, a picture of oranges and the big '107 calories' sign stamped on the front. I like to keep it in the fridge, it's best eaten cold.
I usually buy this particular flavour in packs of 9x2 fingers for around £1.16 in Tescos. It is ideal for carrying around in your handbag as a little nibble, or even for your kids lunch boxes, although probably not the best idea during the heatwave as I recently discovered, on the plus side my handbag now also smells of oranges!
I found these Kit Kat brs on offer in my local supermarket and couldn't resist an impulse buy! I was lured by the big "107 calories per bar" logo on the front as well as having a liking for all thins chocolate-orange.
The bars come in a multipack and are individually wrapped in foil and paper just like normal kit kat mutipack bars. They are the two fingered bars which are great for a quick treat. There are nine bars in the pack and I picked them up for £1 which I thought was a good deal.
Just like the original Kit Kat, the orange version consists of thin layers of wafer biscuit and a creme sandwich between each layer covered in a reasonably thick coating of chocolate. And of course you still get that satisfying 'snap' when breaking the two fingers apart!
The orange kit kat tastes great! It has a strong orangey flavour in the chocolate but is not too sweet or too overpowering though. I generally am not a fan of manufacturers messing about with their products for novelty value but in this case I'm very glad Kit Kat have done as I much prefer these to normal kit kats now. The orange flavour really adds a new dimension for me - if you are a fan of Terry's chocolate orange then you should certainly give these a try. The flavour is smooth and tangy and the crunch of the wafer is lovely. All in all I think these are now my favourite mid afternoon treat to go with my cuppa.

Am actually eating a few of these for my breakfast today. Yes, not the healthiest breakfast, but nice for a change nonetheless.
I picked up a pack of these in sainsbury's last night. We both like kit kats in our house, and although it is more the original ones we pick up in the 4 fingered pack, I like the flavoured ones.
These were on offer for £1 for the 9 2 fingered pack. Good enough offer as I think these would normally cost around £1.60 in sainsburys.
These are obviously individually wrapped but also in an outer wrapper as well. Got the kit Kat branding on the front, as well as a picture of the Chocolate bar and a nice Orange on the front.
These are foil wrapped and have a paper wrapper over it. The 2 fingers are joined together just as normal, but i'm sure most of us know how Kit Kats look.
You get the nice Milk Chocolate taste from these, but mixed through them there is a nice slightly tangy Orange taste to these. it isn't overpowering but a nice little jaffa tang to it.
Each 2 fingered pack has 112 calories.
A nice twist on an original Chocolate Bar.
When I shop I do tend to buy things that are on offer so after browsing the biscuit aisle in Tesco's I noticed that Nestle kit Kat multi packs were on offer of nice packs of two sticks for £1. I do love the Original Kit Kats but had not yet tried the orange flavour but thought it would be something different to try.
These are packaged in an orange wrapper as opposed to the traditional red colour. There is a picture of oranges on the front of the label but in fact the orange is actually the Orange flavour must be in the natural flavourings as there is no mention of orange listed on the ingredients
Each bar contains 107 calories and 5.4 grams of fat which is reasonable but should only be eaten as part of a balanced diet.
Kit Kat advertise on its packaging that it is free from
Nuts and eggs
Artificial colours, sweeteners and flavours
Also these are suitable for vegetarians.
Upon opening these are identical to an original with the kit Kat logo imprinted into the milk chocolate covering. If you break them in half you see the traditional wafer layers and cream layer. It does not appear apparent that it is orange flavour however the aroma is different. It does have a very strong Orange aroma which does smell a little artificial is
When you bit through you are first hit with the taste of chocolate which tastes of reasonable quality, the wafers and then the orange cream. Each of the fingers does have an overwhelming taste of orange which is a smooth orange rather than a sharp citrus taste.
I do find that they are sweeter than the original Kit Kat but no so sickly that you can't easily polish off two sticks but sweet enough to satisfy a sweet craving. Although the textures are the same the taste is very different and lovers of the traditional Kit Kat may well not be fans of the orange version
Both my son and enjoy these and can recommend them if you have a sweet tooth and fancy a relatively low calorie sweet treat although not a particularly filling one.
While Kit Kat do have their own website it fails to mention that orange Kit Kat so is not worth visiting for extra information.
Kit Kats are a fantastic biscuit chocolate product that I always enjoy. They come in two or four fingers and can be bought in packets of 10 or more and are pretty cheap too, recently I bought a pack of these orange ones for just 50 for a pack of 10 which only works out at 5p per kit kat which is just amazing value for money.
These orange ones are by far my favourite kit kats. Do like the taste of the original ones but the biscuit combines with the orange hint of flavour just makes these ones something else and that tips them over the edge in flavour compared to the original ones.
The aroma is the first thing that hits you with this product when you open it, it has a really sweet orange smell, maybe not so much like real oranges but similar to the chocolate orange, its just a really great smell.
When you bite into the bar though is where the taste is. The chocolate that surrounds the wafer layers is orange flavoured and this melts in your mouth and combined with the taste of the wafer it makes the whole thing taste fantastic. I really like these bars, I love original kit kats too but these are loads better.
I'm not sure sometimes why manufacturers feel they have to change or add a twist to an already proved standard product. I suppose they think we must be getting bored eating the same old stuff. But so Nestle have done with the Kit Kat, in recent years they've given us the big fat chunky one, admittedly very nice but it still tasted of Kit Kat.
Now, they've started flavouring them and I'm not so sure if it's worked. This review is for the orange one, but there is also a mint, caramel and even a cappucino flavour.
My kids have been munching these for a while and they seem to prefer this kind to the original, but I've only been buying them when Tesco have had them on offer for a 9 pack for just £1 and across all flavours which is a pretty good deal. It was only the other day though when I dared to try them myself, not being a biscuity person and also cos I wasn't sure if I'd like them.
They come in the standard two finger wafer size, wrapped in foil with an outer wrapper in bright orange and the familiar Kit Kat logo and 3 oranges. It also advertises the fact that each biscuit contains only 107 calories so you can Kit Kat without feeling too naughty. When I did WeightWatchers a few years ago, these were one of the few biscuits you could allow yourself. There are 5.4 grams of fat per two finger bar though so certianly not sin free.
The first thing I noticed once opening up the outside sellophane holding all 9 biscuits together was the the strong orange smell, very citrusy but a bit too sweet for me. I usually keep all biscuits together in the barrel but I have to keep these separate in the cupboard otherwise we'd have the choc chip cookies and the custard creams orangy as well.
I'm sure everyone knows the Kit Kat taste, two crispy wafers covered in milk chocolate, and that satisfying 'snap' when you run your thumbnail down the foil in the middle and separate each finger. For me, the original is far better and I don't know why they felt they had to bring this one in. Surely they had it sorted with the original and best? I don't dislike orange flavour chocolate at all but a Terry's Choc Orange is far nicer. This Kit Kat leaves quite an aftertaste and is a bit sickly, I only had one of the two fingers and it was quite enough.
My children certainly seem to like this kind and I will buy it again for them But the original with a cuppa is a real treat, whereas the aftertaste for this really didn't go well with my brew at all and is definitely not for me.
I will give it 3 stars as my children love it as do probably loads of other people, but it didn't tickle my tastebuds very much at all.
Kit Kat Orange
Traditionally speaking I am not a fan of orange flavoured chocolate. For years I have been given a Terry's chocolate orange as a Christmas present and normally I usually swap it or give it away to someone else. This year however I tried it because my girlfriend was eating it and I found it to be actually quite nice. So when I seen the Kit Kat orange in my local store I decide to give them a try to see if they were any good.
What is a Kit Kat?
A kit Kat is a wafer biscuit covered in chocolate. In this instance the chocolate is Orange flavour. Kit Kats are famous for having two sticks that can be separated from each other. I always felt that this made it feel like you were getting twice as much when I was younger.
Price and availability
Kit Kats are available in many places such as office vending machines, supermarkets, corner shops etc. Orange flavour is not as widely available but they can be found in most decent supermarkets. I bought mine in Tesco at a cost of £1.39 and they came in a 10 pack format. Each bar contains 107 calories and 5.4g of fat.
I was pretty impressed by this product. The packaging on this product is orange instead of the famous kit Kat red. The biscuit is wrapped in light tin foil which is easily penetrated by ones nail. Once opened the smell of the orange was quite distinct.
The biscuits are still as good as I remembered them and it was easy to break them into two separate biscuits. The chocolate is light milk chocolate and it would be very easy to melt in the hand. It's even easier to melt in the mouth and it taste much nicer that way too. The orange is definitely noticeable but it's not too overpowering. Overall this was a lovely biscuit bar but I wouldn't want to have for lunch a few days in a row as it could get a bit sickening.
Kit Kat Orange
Kit Kat's are lovely chocolate biscuits. They consist of two or four fingers of crispy wafer with layers of crème covered in an amazing layer of Nestle chocolate. The fingers are welded together by the layer of chocolate but you can snap them apart and eat each finger separately if you wish or just bite into the whole thing. I much prefer to break each finger apart and nibble around the edge of the chocolate, yummy.
Kit Kat originals have been around sine 1935 when they were first created by Rowntree's of York, England. The Kit Kat Orange was the first flavour variant. It was introduced in the UK in 1996. I think this was a good flavour to start with as orange and chocolate always go well together as can be seen from the great success of Terry's chocolate orange. This is now a permanent flavour in the UK which is great as I love it. It is sold in the two finger variety.
A Kit Kat orange is basically the same as a regular Kit Kat except for the fact that the chocolate layer covering the biscuit is a lovely orange flavour. In my opinion this has a lovely orangey flavour to it, I would liken it to a Terry's chocoalte orange flavour, it's very similar, smooth and very tasty. It is not overly citrusy or sharp but just a nice, creamy flavour. The creme filling as always is lovely and sweet without being too sickly and the wafer is always nice and crisp and light.
The packaging of this bar is much the same as a regular Kit Kat except for the fact that the wrapper is orange and has a picture of some oranges on the front so you cannot mistake it for a regular Kit Kat.
The great thing about this chocolate bar is the amount of calories. There are only 107 in a two finger Kit Kat orange bar which in my opinion makes it a very tasty, guilt free chocolate snack!
The Kit Kat is a classic, and has been around for ages, but this Orange version is a recent addition to the line. To be honest, this is very good, but not as good as the original. It has the same level of quality that you would expect from Nestle, it tastes great and is good value for money. However, the orange can be a bit over powering sometimes, isn't always filling and gets sickly.
The packaging is very basic, but follows the branding making it easy to find on the shelf. The text is very crisp and clear making it easy to read. It can be opened easily, and is mostly always fresh, with the great Kit Kat 'crunch'. The picture on the front will make your mouth water and encourage you to pop them into your shopping trolley.
The quality of the product is high, with good ingredients and the same great taste every time. It is on par with lots of the other Nestle products that are available.
The price is very good, with a packet usually on offer for £1 for quite a lot of bars. You get enough to last along time, and more than in other alternative products, making them great value for money.
When you open the packet, a very nice sweet orange smell, making your mouth water and making you feel the need to eat one. Peeling back the wrapper reveals a nice thick bar, which looks very delicious. It will start to melt in your mouth, as the chocolate is silky smooth. The orange is very strong and a little bit too over powering for me. The wafer is very crunchy and combines with the chocolate to create a great texture, but the taste is too strong, not keeping with the Kit Kat brand. This leads it into competition with Terry's chocolate orange, and this doesn't deliver comparing it to that.
Also, it isn't too unhealthy, with not too many calories and fat, making it a great snack.
However, it is quite sickly after a while and not very filling.
Overall, not too bad but doesn't really deliver in my opinion. The orange taste is too strong, but it is very good value for money and the product matches up to what we can expect from Nestle.
I was in the Co-op the other day and noticed a good value choccie offer - 9 Kit Kat orange (2 finger) bars for a pound.
What are they?: The orange Kit Kats are simply "two crispy wafer fingers covered with orange flavoured milk chocolate".
Packaging: The 9 bars are contained within bright red foil packaging with an enticing picture of oranges to represent the orange flavoured chocolate. The 2 fingered bars themselves are contained within an orange paper wrap with the Kit Kat logo, oranges and the statement "107 calories' prominent. Inside the paper wrap, the chocolate is sealed by silver foil. The nutritional information is provided on the external multipack packaging and on the individual bars.
Appearance and smell: The fingers have a generous coating of chocolate around the wafer biscuit, with the Kit Kat logo embossed on each finger. As soon as you unwrap the foil, there is a fantastic aromatic orange chocolate flavour that is very tempting.
Taste: The taste is like a Terrys chocolate orange but better as you get the wafer included. The orange chocolate and wafer is a fantastic combination that is very moreish and better than the original Kit Kat (in my opinion).
Value for money: For a multipack costing a pound, each 2 finger bar costs just over 11p - this is great value for money when considering a standard Kit Kat (4 fingers) costs approximately 50p.
Healthy?: Each 2 finger bar contains 107 calories - 5% of an adults GDA, so pretty good considering this is chocolate!.
Overall: The orange Kit Kats smell great, taste great and are better than the original flavour - which are also good in their own right. This is an improvement on a classic.
I am a big fan of KitKat and very much enjoy the standard milk chocolate varieties whether it be the traditional two and four finger stick bars or the relavtively newer Chunky bar. I am a bit wary of mixing flavours with chococlate as sometimes it just doesn't work out even though it sounds good in theory. I have tried Terry's Chocolate Orange and quite liked that combination so am willing to try others. So when I saw these multipacks in Tesco I bought it.
KitKat has been around for ages, since 1935, but it was a while before they started experimenting with different flavours. Orange was the first flavour they came up with in 1996. Then came dark and mint. These come in a multipack of nine two-stick bars. The packaging is a mix of the traditional bright red and orange with some juicy looking oranges in the background. Each bar has just 107 calories. Inside each bar is individually wrapped in foil and then in paper.
Each bar has two sticks. Each stick has several layers of wafer and milk chocolate stacked up and covered in milk chocolate that is flavoured with orange. Now as with all KitKats this has the same famililar snap sound and crispiness of the layers of wafer. The chocoalte is also rich and creamy and has the perfect chocolate to wafer ratio. The orange aspect of it is nice and not too overpowering, you can still detect the milk chocolateyness of the bar and it isn't at all bitter. However from my point of view, the orange here does not work quite as well as it does for Terry's and though this is nice enough for a change I think I prefer the purity of the original KitKat so think. These cost £1.41 a pack though can currently be bought at Tesco on a 2 for £2 offer.
Kit Kat Orange was introduced in 1996 in the UK
~ Overview ~
The Kit Kat has been around since 1935 so what do you do if you want to appeal to a wider audience; the answer is to create new tastier flavours of Kit Kat. It was released in 1996 and became a hit with lots of orange chocolate bar lovers. The brand is a worldwide item which is manufactured in 15 different counties.
~ My opinion ~
As I am a big Kit Kat lover, especially the original chocolate bar I decided to try the orange version for the first time, I was quite surprised as it was quite sickly after two bars and found that it took away the original flavours of a Kit Kat. I could only manage two bars of a four bar Kit Kat but still you can save the rest for your next break. A tip would be to buy the chunky bar as it is just right for my taste buds.
I personally found that after two bars of this it became a bit too much, but in small doses it is quite a tasty snack. Credit goes to Kit Kat as changing a bar of chocolate can be risky and the only negative is that it did take away the original Kit Kat taste which sometimes takes away the quality of the product.
The orange taste tends to be a bit overwhelming and the wafers taste is lost in this version of the Kit Kat. If you are an orange lover then you will like this product, but in my opinion it ran out of juice.

I tend to buy my orange Kit Kat's from ASDA for £1.00 for a pack of nine (21g). ASDA is the cheapest and the next best is Tesco's.
~ Interesting facts ~
- The Kit Kat was originally named Chocolate Crisp
- The chunky Kit Kat in America is called the Big Kat
- After the end of the Second World War Dark chocolate had to be used for a coating instead of the milk chocolate coating we have today due to milk shortages.
- Originally it was owned by Rowntree's before Nestle took over.
~ Other varieties of Kit Kat released over the world ~
Kit Kat Original
Kit Kat White (released in Spain and Japan)
Kit Kat Iced Tea (released in Japan)
Kit Kat Caramel and Salt (Japan)
Kit Kat Mint (UK and the USA)
Kit Kat Peach (Japan)
Kit Kat Caramac (UK only)
Kit Kat Pineapple (South Africa)
Kit Kat Lite (India)
Kit Kat Pumpkin (Japan)
Kit Kat (Banana)
Kit Kat Mango (Japan)
Kit Kat Orange (UK and USA)
So as you can see above many different flavours have been made but only really to suit those countries. The above list is not the entire list but just gives you an idea of what else is out there and especially the Caramel and salt, what were they thinking? Anyway I don't think I would be rushing out to buy that any time soon.
