Nestle Kit Kat Pop Choc
Advantages: Good to share, tasty chocolate coating, crisp wafer filling
Disadvantages: Pricey, nothing special
I came across these in Tesco recently when on offer so decided to give them a go. I like Kit Kats, even though I don't find them to be anything particularly special, so I wasn't expecting anything amazing from these. Strangely enough, when the chocolate and wafer is packed into a small cube, they're very tasty!
Kit Kat is a very popular chocolate bar produced by Nestle, and the Pop Choc is its latest variation. This comes in a red plastic foil type share bag that's instantly recognisable as being Kit Kat, what with the huge logo across the front. It has a tear off top and it's resealable, which I always find to be a good thing with products like this that you may not want to eat all in one go.
These are described as 'crispy wafer pieces covered with milk chocolate', so it's a pretty basic concept. The first thing I thought when I picked up the bag was that there didn't seem to be that many in there, but when sharing with another person and savouring each one, the quantity was okay when bought on offer. What you actually get are small, rounded cube-like pieces covered in a layer of milk chocolate. When you bite in to it you'll find 4 small layers of wafer in between thin chocolate layers.
If you like Kit Kats then you'll probably like these, in fact, I think I actually prefer them because I can make them last longer than the regular bars. Having said that, they don't taste 'exactly' the same; I think of these a bit like Mini Cheddars in a way because they don't taste the same to me as regular ones. I also think there's a tad more chocolate because each 'pop choc' is coated in a reasonably good layer of it. It's just enough to get that Nestle chocolate hit that's sweet without being sickly. It also complements the wafer well; it's crisp but quite soft when the chocolate melts in your mouth, and because you get a small bite each time, you can savour it a little longer.
Per 100g this provides 539 calories and 31.6g of fat, but per portion, if you consider that to be 9 pieces, you're getting 108 calories and 6.3g of fat, which is about average for a small chocolatey snack.
Overall, these may not be anything particularly special but if you like Kit Kats, want a chocolate crunch with crisp wafer, then they're worth trying. These are great to share and make a tasty treat, which I would buy again for £1. However, I just can't see myself ever buying these at their usual price, which I think is far too expensive for what you actually get.
117g, currently selling at £1, usual price £1.89 (Tesco).
Summary: Nice to nibble for £1 but nothing special
