This review is on the Kit Kat brand of Kit Kat Cappuccino, which has been out for some time. My first altercation with this chocolate bar was actually during Halloween. My little nephew had been bugging his mum to take him, however for some reason I got dragged into going. Well I thought why not, however him only being six, and me being the cunning person I am, we made a deal that I would get first dibs on all chocolates and sweets he got, and before you ask there was plenty left for him. Anyway, we got back home, and emptied the bag; out popped the mars bars, the skittle, the bounty and even the flake. However, trapped underneath all these chocolates was a dark wrapper, with four stick like chocolate pieces. I instantly knew it was a Kit Kat, namely due to the unique shape and wrapper, however It was somewhat strange to see a new flavour Kit Kat. Kit Kat Cappuccino it read on the wrapper, my first impression being do caffeine and chocolate really go, and secondly im glad my nephew didn't get these or he would have been awake all night.
Anyway, ive always been a fan of Kit Kat, but for me when they started releasing new styles and flavours I started getting bored, I always thought of myself as a traditional Kit Kat fan, one shape and one flavour, and so I was at first wary of trying it, but chocolate is chocolate and nothing would stop me enjoying sweet heavily taste of coco.
So moment of truth, I done my usual ritual of biting into each stick as if I was a rabbit, I don't personally no why I do it, I guess its because I can hear the crunch of the biscuit or something weird like that.
I always try to think of myself as a chocolate critic, probably because I can eat about 8 or 9 different bars a day. I was actually quite surprised with the taste of this chocolate. We obviously get the strong potent smell and taste of cappuccino, but its not so strong that it puts you off eating it. It was a brilliant balance of chocolate and cappuccino, and if only they made a cappuccino like this. You can always taste and in my case hear the biscuit, its was makes Kit Kat so great. I remember by this point having my fingers covered with chocolate, probably the only downside about the product, it always seems to melt so quickly, nevertheless a brilliant product. It wasn't before all fur fingers were gone, and then the creamy sensation started hitting my tongue, it was actually quite a nice experience and one I come to enjoy, hmm no wonder people think of chocolate as an aphrodisiac.
Price: The usual price for a four stick bar is £1.25,which can seem expensive, but I have been to Asda and Tesco's in recent times and have noticed much cheaper offers, for instance last week I bought 4 stick bar * 5 which worked out to under £4, which isn't bad what so ever.
Packaging: Well most people, especially those who eat Kit Kat will no that it comes in a standard packet, with a foil covering, which is used to keep it cool and protected, how caring. The normal Kit Kats use to come in a red shape packet, however since this is a darker flavour and moreover representing cappuccino, it would make sense for them to have it in a dark package. Duh.
Stand out Taste:
There are quite a few strange and unique traits about this chocolate. We first have the taste of normal chocolate, that's normal; let's not confuse it with the dark taste, which is way to strong.
Secondly, we have the taste of the crispy; wafer type biscuit that it was makes Kit Kat so recognisable. And finally the nice, calming and exotic taste of the cappuccino that makes this product so brilliant.
Ingredients and Nutritional Info:
Well having done some research, it is so that Kit Kat has different Ingredients and calorie values in the UK and US. The UK, standard four fingers chocolate has 233 calories, which isn't too bad for a chocolate, since ive seen some bars well over 300 calories. The product also contains the following Ingredients;
UK: Milk chocolate (66%) (sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, dried skimmed milk, whey powder, butterfat, vegetable fat, lactose, emulsifier (Soya lecithin), flavoring), wheat flour, sugar, vegetable fat, cocoa mass, yeast, raising agent (sodium bicarbonate), salt, calcium sulfate (a.k.a Gypsum), flavoring.

History about the Kit Kat Brand:
Kit Kat product has been around for many years, with its first pioneering bar being released in America sometime in 1936. At the time this was only the traditional two stick bar. It wasn't until a few years later they added the extra two bars. Being owned by Rowntrees, the product was launched in the UK, sometime during the late 1930's, however the company later changed the name of this product to Kit Kat Chocolate Crisp.
Kit Kat bars are manufactured in over 13 countries and come in a variety of shapes and flavours. The traditional one dimensional bar was created into a thick chunky bar, and it was turned into orange and even peanut butter flavours.
Would I buy it again?
Why not, for me the chocolate not only has a unique and complex taste, but it's probably one of only a few chocolates that don't leave me full or boated. It's ideal for a lunch break snack, or after a meal. Why not give this product a try, what have you got too loose, £1.25?
