Nestle Kit Kat Chunky
Advantages: Chunky, Chocolatey, Tasty
Disadvantages: Poor nutritional value, Sore mouth
I first remember seeing a Kit Kat chunky in the vending machine at school and I've always been a huge chocoholic so our relationship began there. I have tried original, seville orange, mint, peanut butter, caramel, dark, choc fudge, white and now coconut as part of the new Facebook 'choose a chunky champion' campaign. The chunky is the all purpose Kit Kat being great fresh from the fridge, dunked or used as a straw in your cup of tea!
Described as a 'delicious crispy wafer covered in a smooth layer of milk chocolate' the Chunky was born in 1999 to the Kit Kat brand owned by Nestle since 1988. The first Kit Kat was created by Rowntree in 1911 with four fingers after a worker suggested this would be ideal in a mans pack up for work.
The chunky comes in a red wrapper 17cm long, this variety is coconut and has a white section with green leaves. Chunky is written in white letters inside a blue rectangle and the classic Kit Kat logo in an oval to the side. The back contains the barcode, company information, best before date, nutritional info and on this edition the details of how to vote for your favourite.
Nutritonal information (per bar):
To look at the bar I see a division of three marked into it so the nutritional info and this suggests that it should be shared, in my case I halved it with my partner!
The chocolate is the best part of this bar and the aroma fills the area I am currently sat in. It has three wafers inside and the coconut edition has a cream filling on top of the wafers and is enrobed with the thick chocolate. I could not eat Nestle chocolate like I can Cadburys but with the chunky I just love the taste and crisp texture but only when fresh from the fridge! Plus I am not normally a wafer fan but in this combination I cannot say no.
This edition is coconut and I must say I was expecting maybe something like a bounty but no its a cream filling which has very little taste and just seems to add a sweet aroma.
The downside to the bar is the 'chunk', yes its what makes the bar fab but also what adds the downer which is my sore gums/ roof of mouth as I struggle to open my jaw that wide. To all those with normal size mouths I'm sure this is not a problem!
I usually buy my Kit Kat Chunkys from the local corner shop; they can be found in supermarkets and most retailers with chocolate nowadays. I usually pay between 50-75p which I always find a little expensive as they used to be 35p in the vending machines at school (those were the days).
Summary: Treat yourself to a chocolatey chunk!
