KitKats have been a long time favourite in my house, ever since I was a child I remember munching on one in my lunch box and they are still a lunch box favourite now.
KitKats come in a whole different selection, milk, dark, mint, orange, cookies & cream 2 fingers as well as 4 finger milk and the chunky range which often has limited edition flavours. The price for a pack of 8 x 2 finger is normally around £1.50-£1.70 however many places often have these on offer for £1 or similar multibuy deals. 4 finger and chunky KitKats can be purchased individually for around 60-80p or in packets or 3 or 4 for around £1-£1.50 the 3 packet size tends to be in Pound land but most supermarkets will do a 4 pack size.
I remember back in the day getting all KitKats in a proper foil wrapper however for the 4 finger and chunky range they don't do this no more which is fair enough seen as these tend to be sold separately it makes sense to have them in the foil based wrapper but not proper foil but the 2 finger KitKats are still like this. KitKat wrapping is simple, its red and white and on the different flavours it has different colour to represent this, mint is green so its easy to see what flavour is what.
KitKats in general terms have a lovely chocolate coating with wafers inside. The chocolate covers the wafer well and the wafer is still crispy and has a nice bite to it. The different flavours you get mint is definitely my favourite, for me mint chocolate as a whole is great and their should be more of and so Im glad it is part of the KitKat range. Whenever I buy KitKats I always buy the mint 2 finger or chunky packets. Although Nestle chocolate is quite as good as Cadbury I think it still has a nice smooth texture to it and is easy on the tongue, whenever I have a 2 finger Kitkat I always want another!
These do make great lunch time boxes both for adults and for kids. The mint variety is a welcome change, I think there should be more mint chocolate products out there!
I do enjoy the odd bar of chocolate and one that I always enjoy is a kit kat as I find that the two finger bars are just the right size to make a great little mid morning treat. When I went to see my mum the other day she presented me with something that I had not seen or tried before....a mint kit kat.
My mum purchased these kit kats in a multi-pack containing 8 two fingered bars. They were purchased recently from Tesco and were on special offer priced at just £1.00.
These mint kit kats come packaged in the same way as an original kit kat with the bar wrapped in foil with a paper sleeve. The only difference is that the paper sleeve around the bar is dark green rather than the signature red colour. The wrapper has the kit kat and Nestle logo on the front as well as the fair-trade logo, it also stated at each bar contains 107 calories. On the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed product information including ingredients listings, nutritional information and the statement that the bar is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
The kit kat itself consists of two crispy wafer fingers covered in mint flavoured milk chocolate. The two fingers are joined together with chocolate but can easily be separated by simply snapping them in two. The kit kat name is also imprinted onto the middle of each finger.
Now I do love original kit kats as I think the combination of the crisp wafer and the smooth, creamy milk chocolate work perfectly with each other and make a delicious sweet treat. I was a little sceptical as to whether the mint flavouring would work or not but I am happy to report that it does. I found these mint kit kat bars just delicious, the mint flavour is quite strong but still allows the taste of the milk chocolate to come through and with the crisp wafer it is like eating a luxury after dinner mint.
Overall I really enjoyed these mint kit kats they are extremely tasty and make a change from the original ones. The mint flavouring works perfectly with the wafer and chocolate and makes a very nice snack.
I recently bought a pack of mint Kit Kats as I spotted that they were on special offer and I hadn't tried them before. I'd had the original Kit Kats but not for many years and though a mint twist might be interesting!
The Kits Kats look the same as the regular ones, two fingers of chocolate and wafer wrapped in tin foil with the instantly recognisable red paper sleeve with the logo on. I'm glad the packaging for Kit Kats hasn't changed much over the years, its very nostalgic and opening the newer four finger bars that have the new style plastic wrappers just isn't the same!
As for taste, well a Kit Kat is best served cold to keep it crispy and crunchy so I recommend storing them in the fridge or at least in a very cool cupboard. Melted Kit Kat is nobody's idea of a good time. If they're chilled, the Kits Kats, snap easily and satisfyingly into smaller chunks and the combination of wafer and milk chocolate creates a lovely texture. The hint of mint in this variety is definitely noticeable but not too strong, the main flavour is still that of the chocolate. It reminds me a little bit of mint viscounts in that its fresh and different without being, well, odd.
I'd definitely recommend mint Kit Kats as a variation on an old classic, they're great as a low cal dessert, a snack on the go or if you're just feeling a bit naughty and need a quick chocolate fix.
Kit Kat mint is another fantastic addition to the Kit Kat family and is my second favourite of the flavours after the orange I think, however really it depends on what mood im in as to which one I get because sometimes I do really prefer these mint ones.
The Kit Kat is a fantastic chocolate and wafer product that is made up of lots of thin layers of wafer and chocolate stuck together and then its all coated in a thick layer of milk chocolate to seal it all up. They come in long thin stick shaped bars and usually contain two which are stuck together and have to be broken to eat or you can also get them in four bars as well but two are the most common.
These mint ones are great though, when you open the pack you do get quite a nice strong smell of chocolate and mint mixed together which smells fantastic. You also get a fantastic taste as well though, which is the mint chocolate flavourings in the chocolate. You could think that the mint would be too strong and wouldn't really go with this kind of bar but you would be wrong, the mint is just right, you can taste it with every bite but it still doesn't over power the chocolate and wafer taste, and instead of controlling the bar it mixes in with it and makes it even better.
These are a fantastic addition to the Kit Kat bars, if you haven't tried these ones yet then I really do advise them if you like mint flavoured chocolate products like I do and if your also a fan of kit kats as you will love these.
I started to buy Kit Kat's a few years ago when I noticed the range of flavours and the low calories.
This particular product is the Kit Kat chocolate bar in mint flavour. It has been around for quite a while now, but I am still in love with it! They are manufactured by Nestle who are well known for their great tasting foods and good reputation.
Kit Kat mint is TWO crispy wafer fingers which are covered in smooth and creamy, refreshing mint flavoured milk chocolate.
The packaging on the Kit Kat above is a little outdated, nowadays the Kit Kat is wrapped in foil with a green sleeve around it with the red Kit Kat logo and mint leaves beside it. This is very eye catching as the normal Kit Kat's would be red.
There are different types and flavours of Kit Kat's. This particular one comes in a multi pack of about 8 or 12 but you can buy the Kit Kat chunky on it owns. The multi pack Kit Kat's come in either original, caramel, mint or orange. The Kit Kat chunky comes in peanut butter or original.
You can buy the multi packs from Tesco or any supermarkets for around £1.50 and the chunky's for around 50p.
The good points about this chocolate bar is the fact that it is only 107 calories which is healthier than some cereal bars, the mint is quite refreshing and gives you that little kick, the chocolate is very smooth and the wafer is not too hard like I find with the chunky.
I do not think I see a bad point in these unless you are trying to cut out chocolate all together!
As I said, these are very tasty, one of my favourites and not to expensive either. They can be put in lunch boxes, eaten on the go- 'have a break, have a Kit Kat'! or eaten as a snack. I would recommend these for anyone who likes mint an chocolate. They are well worth trying and I am sure you will not be let down!
5/5 For ongoing success of Kit Kat's!
Chocolate and mint go together perfectly, think After Eights, think Mint Matchsticks, etc etc and now there are Mint Kit Kat's to add to the mix!
According to an article I read, Mentha (mint) is a genus of about 25 species (and many hundreds of varieties) of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae (Mint Family). Mint is very aromatic, the leaves have a pleasant warm, fresh, aromatic, sweet flavor with a cool aftertaste and so are used in a vast number of products including teas, toothpastes, deserts and of course chocolate.
Mint chocolate is created is when mint flavoring, such as peppermint, spearmint, or crème de menthe, is added to plain chocolate.
Kit Kat originals have been around sine 1935 when they were first created by Rowntree's of York, England. The mint Kit Kat is now a permanent flavour in the UK which is great as I love it. It is sold in the two finger variety.
Kit Kat's are one of my favourite 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. I love all the different varieties they have come out with such as the orange flavour, the peanut butter flavour and even the chunky versions although I do prefer the smaller Kit Kat's to the bigger Kit Kat's.
A Kit Kat mint is basically the same as a regular Kit Kat except for the fact that the chocolate layer covering the biscuit is a lovely mint flavour. In fact, when you first open the wrapping you are hit by the lovely fragrant smell of mint. When you actually taste the chocolate it has a nice flavour to it without being overpowering. 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 partly green with a picture of a mint leaf on it 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 mint bar which in my opinion makes it a very tasty, guilt free chocolate snack!
Kit Kat produced by Nestle has been around for many years and is one of those chocolate bars that never goes out of fashion. In recent years, they have launched a number of spinoff flavours from their original bar including the peanut butter version. I was not aware that there was also a mint version, I spotted it in my local supermarket recently so thought I had to give it a try!
In look and appearence, the bar itself looks no different from the original bar, obviously the packaging varies but apart from that it is identical. Take a bite into it however and the difference will soon become clear.
The first thing you'll taste it the traditional chocoltely flavour you normally associate with a Kit Kat along with the crunchy biscuit, but there then is a stong minty after taste which works very well indeed. Tastewise the nearest thing I could compare this to is probably After Eight. It's almost like a Kit Kat bar offering you a little bonus.
If you're fan of Kit Kat's in general, definetly give this new flavour a try, it definetly offers more than the traditional bar. Now I've tried it, I just want more!
