Recently I was craving chocolate really badly as I hadn't had any in a good few weeks which is why when I saw the whole Kit Kat range on offer at Asda I got excited and had to throw them into my basket. I normally tend to keep away from buying packs of chocolate biscuits as I know it's only going to end badly with me eating them all in a short space of time. Kit Kat's are also very addictive but I wanted to give the Caramel fingers a go. PACKAGING In traditional Kit Kat packaging they come in a long rectangular wrapper which is red with a silver band across the middle and a caramel coloured bar to signify the flavour. The individual biscuits themselves all come in just a caramel coloured wrapper with the Kit Kat logo clearly sat on top and they are also wrapper in foil to keep them fresh and protected. NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION With Kit Kat Caramel they state all over the wrapper and individual wrappers that they are 107 calories a biscuits (5%), 10g of sugar (11%), 5.4g fat (8%), 3g of saturates (15%) and 0.1g of salt (1%) and of course figures in brackets are the percentage taken up of our daily allowance on each of the following. They are not the healthiest of chocolate bars even though they reinforce the 107 calories part, by looking at the fat and saturates it shows they should not be over indulged in. TASTE When it comes to eating Kit Kat caramel or any form of Kit Kat there is no better way to do so than to dip it into my cup of tea. I always peel off the foil and then break the fingers into two so that it seems like they last longer. The Nestlé chocolate is very creamy but has a great sweet taste and with the faintest hint of caramel it makes it all seem like a subtle but refreshing combination. The caramel flavour is nicer than there actually being caramel in it, as it is less messy and it also works better for the brand. When it comes down to it though these are ideal as part of a lunch as I think just one bar tends to just be consumed so quickly that you want another one and this is not the point really. RECOMMEND? I think with Kit Kat's because as I said before they are so popular and well known to have on a break or a snack, everyone will try their new flavours. I have to say though I always love the new flavours they bring out and I am yet to fault them. These are ideal for anyone who wants a quick sweet fix or just wants something as part of their lunch or with a cup of tea. They are so small you can easily hold them on the go and they are not at all messy to eat. COST So, as I was saying I purchased mine in Asda which included 9 in the pack and each has 2 fingers. They have lasted me well over a week which has surprised me and being new they were on offer for just £1. Normally these will retail for £1.62 which still isn't too bad and these can be purchased at all supermarkets.

Yesterday evening we brought the kids out for a walk and I went to the Sainsbury's to buy some tissues for my husband when I saw the new Nestlé KitKat Caramel fingers. I couldn't resist so I bought a pack of 9 double bars. I paid 1.52 pounds for it but for further few days they are on offer in Tesco for 1 pound. They come in a red and light brown wrapper with a huge KitKat logo on the left. The bottom half of the wrapper is red, the top half of the wrapper is caramel brown. It is different product to the KitKat Crunchy Caramel. On the right corner of the wrapper you can see the NEW label with huge letters and also the 107 calories logo. Within the large pack you can find nine bars all of them wrapped individually. They look similar to all the other KitKat bars. So they are packed in silver foil and have a paper band over them with the KitKat Caramel label. When I opened a bar I felt a very strong caramel scent. Usually caramel has no such strong smell but this one has strong scent. The double wafer fingers are covered with delicious caramel flavour milk chocolate. The wafers I think are the same as in original one so the milk chocolate coat is flavoured. This is the main reason of strong caramel scent. They were as crispy as the original or the orange ones but they are coated with milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. I am a milk chocolate fun but probably KitKat is the only one wafer bar I can eat coated in dark chocolate as well. The ingredients are as follows: Milk Chocolate (66%), Wheat Flour, Sugar, Vegetable Fat, Cocoa Mass, Yeast, Natural Flavourings, Raising Agent (Sodium Bicarbonate), Salt, Calcium Sulphate, Milk Chocolate contains: Sugar, Dried Whole Milk, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Whey Powder, Vegetable Fat, Lactose, Emulsifiers (Soya Lecithin, E476), Butterfat, Natural Flavouring. The energy content of a bar (20.8 g) is 107 kcal which means that 100 g contains 510 kcal. Well this isn't low at all... but at least it tastes really good. Both of my kids loved them naturally, so from time to time I will buy them. I hope Nestlé won't change them because they are really delicious and I am glad that they are free from hydrogenated fat, preservatives, artificial colours and sweeteners. They don't contain nuts and milk either. They are suitable for vegetarians as well. For more information on the product visit www.kitkat-perfectbreak.co.uk or the manufacturer's site: www.nestle.co.uk. I think these caramel flavour milk chocolate coated wafer are really nice treat for us. I have to take care not to eat more than a bar a day otherwise I spoil my diet and the results I achieved by now. They are really crispy and have wonderful caramel taste. I think it is a new thing not to change the taste of the wafer filling but to add the flavour to the coating chocolate. Well done Nestlé.
