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.

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.
