“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Biscuit „
I'm the first to admit that Kit Kat's aren't the most exciting concept of Chocolate. Chocolate and wafer? Nothing much to it is there? But you don't need something fancy to enjoy a bit of Chocolate surely.
I think I prefer the flavoured Kit kat's more than just the normal Milk Chocolate ones. The Mint Chocolate is nice but think this is my favourite one. The mix of Chocolate and Orange is just right.
Sometimes i've seen this available in the 4 fingered pack, but hardly ever. The 2 fingered pack is a long running flavour. You get these in pack of 9 and they cost around £1.40. Can sometimes be picked up on a 2 for £2 offer with some other Biscuit packs, which is how we normally stock up on the Biscuits.
All wrapped together in an outer layer, and the packs are also wrapped individually. They are foil wrapped with a paper wrapped over them as well. Just looks like the Dooyoo picture on the outer part and the same colouring on the inside.
The 2 fingers are joined together down the middle but are easily broke apart. As I mentioned these are just quite a few layers of thin Wafer with some Milk Chocolate covering them. the Orange taste seems to be in the Chocolate part, and this is quite a strong, but tangy Orange. Tastes nice and natural as well, and it all goes together just right.
each 2 fingered pack has 107 calories.
Sure most of us have tried an Orange Kit kat, but if you have thought about it and not tried then I suggest a try as they are so tasty.
I am a big fan of Kit Kats and think the thin ones are better than the Chunky ones. I like flavoured Chocolate, and the 2 most common ones are Mint and Orange. Unfortunately i've never seen 4 finger packs of the flavoured ones, or I would probably buy more of these.
These are sold in packs of 7 2 fingered packs. They normally cost around the £1.30 mark, but Asda was selling 2 packs for £2, so I tried the Caramel ones - a but yuk, and I won't crave them again anyway!
Each 2 finger pack is wrapped and the whole pack is in a cellophane wrapper. The individual packs are wrapped in foil with a paper wrapper around them. The outside pack has the Kit Kat branding in full view, and the colour scheme is red and orange.
I'm sure most of us know what a Kit Kat is like. The 2 fingers are joined together and you can easily snap the 2 fingers apart and eat them individually. The Biscuit consists of a Wafer covered in Milk Chocolate. Yes, it is a simple Chocolate bar, but that's not a bad thing.
Since this is the Orange Chocolate version, how does this differ from the normal Kit Kat? Everything is the same, but the Chocolate has a good strong hint of Orange through it. It is still milky and creamy Chocolate, but the addition of the Orange makes it more lovely. It's not too tangy either, just a subtle Jaffa Orange in my view.
Each 2 finger pack has 107 calories so can be enjoyed as part of a calorie controlled diet.
I've found two fingers of KitKat will satisfy my chocolate cravings without the guilt of bundles of calories, so when I found my local supermarket had packs of ten two-finger KitKats on a BOGOF, I chucked two packets in my trolley quick. One normal KitKat, one orange.
I can't remember ever having an orange KitKat before, so it was with a bit of trepidation that I opened my first.
On opening the foil, you get a faint whiff of oranges. So far so good.
The snap of separating the fingers is good and clean, bringing a aroma of chocolate and orange. The taste? Like a KitKat that's been rubbed with an orange. The chocolate is light and sweet, with the biscuit providing a crunch while bulking out the little snack.
The verdict? The orange flavouring gives the KitKat a freshness that is very pleasant and aromatic, while not over-powering the chocolate hit.
Other chocolate orange products can become quite sickly, I find, but I'm sure I could probably eat two of these in a row without feeling icky!
Now, the boring nutritional bits.
Per two-finger Orange KitKat, there is:
107 calories and 5.4g of fat helpfully that's all they tell you. Hmmm. However, they tell you all you could ever want in relation to 100g: 510 calories, 4.4g of protein, 42.8g of carbs and 25.6g of fat.
So a quick calculation later, I can tell you that each two-finger bar is approx. 21g each. Tiny really.
Summary: they are a nice alternative to normal KitKats, but if you want a Terry's Chocolate Orange type of orange hit, give it a miss as you'll be left wanting
I am a typical girl who loves chocolate and eats it every day. My latest chocolate of choice are KitKat's of the orange variety.
*PRICE AND AVAILABILITY*
These have been available in every large supermarket for a while now, and are sold in multipacks of 10 for around £1.60 (depending on the store).
I bought my packet from the Co-op as they were on special offer for only £1 - 10p per biscuit is a complete bargain!
The biscuits are packaged in the trademark red wrappers with the very recognisable KitKat logo on it. Because these are orange flavoured, they also have a picture of a few oranges on it too.
I like the packaging as it feels familiar to me, reminding me of when I was living at home and my Mum used to always buy KitKat's for the biscuit cupboard.
No chocolate is gonna be healthy, I know that, but I always try to keep an eye out for the lower calorie treats as it makes me feel better about eating them.
One of these KitKat's contains only 107 calories. That is not a lot considering most people should eat between 2000 and 2500 calories per day.
The fat content is 5.6g, quite high then but what do you expect - it is a chocolate biscuit after all.
On opening the shiny silver wrapper, you will find two fingers of biscuits, together as one.
I would definatley recommend breaking them into two separate fingers - never eat them together as it doesn't taste as nice.
On biting, you will find a crunchy, biscuity texture - and taste a lovely creamy chocolate. This variety also has an orange flavour which is secondary to the familiar chocolate taste.
I really enjoy eating these KitKat's, the only problem for me is that one is never enough, and I have to eat two or three to feel satisfied.
The price is right, as is the taste,so go on, have a break have a KitKat!
Kit Kat! It's one of those classic chocolate bars that has been around for absolutely yonks and will probably continue too. It was first created by those gods of everything tasty, Rowntree's of York in 1935 when a factory worker put a suggestion in the suggestion box asking for a snack 'that a man could have in his lunch box for work.' I'm not sure why there weren't any snacks he couldn't already fit in his lunch box but hey!
Kit Kat bars are sold all over the world in countries like, USA, Spain, Australis, Japan, India and of course good old blighty. There are many varieties including some absolutely fabulous flavours in Japan such as Cherry Blossom, Mango, Soybean Flour, Caramel & Salt and Chesnut. I'm starting to think that it's becoming well worth a visit to Japan just for the sake of sampling the local Kit Kats. The classic Kit Kat in the UK is two fingered but you can buy a whopping 12 finger bar in Australia!
The first regional variety of Kit Kat in the UK was the orange flavour Kit Kat released in 1996. Orange flavour chocolate was already widesold at the time due to the existance of Terry's Chocolate Orange so it wasn't too much of a gamble, but I like it and it obviously payed off as it is still on sale 13 years later!
Orange Kit Kats are sold in multipacks and the bars themselves are the two finger format. They are wrapped in foil with a paper strip. I like to open mine by running my finger down the foil in the middle and snapping the two fingers apart while they still have the foil on them! When you do open the bar you are hit by a lovely orangey aroma.
The Kit Kat itself was the same as a normal Kit Kat - a creamy filling sandwiched between two wafer biscuits and covered in milk chocolate but the chocolate was orange flavoured which just 'works.' I'm not sure why the flavour of something healthy like orange goes so well with something as unhealthy as chocolate! I really enjoyed it but I do prefer the cappuccino flavour.
Kit Kat orange are available in multipacks of 9 from most supermarkets for £1.36, this works out at 15p a bar which is absolutely fantastic value! They also only contain 107 calories and 5.6g of fat per bar which isn't very much compared to other chocolate bars.
I've just bought a 9-pack of these two-fingered orange KitKats from my local Co-op. I cannot remember whether I've had these before, but I just couldn't resist. My chocolate cravings were going off the charts! Anyway, I've always enjoyed a KitKat and although my passion for them tends to lean towards the Chunky ones, I am still more than happy to partake of these delectable nibbles.
For a start, as a 9-pack they are reasonably light, so will not add any burden to anyone's shopping bags. This is particularly relevant for me because I either walk or take the bus. You also know that you will be able to treat yourself to 9 cups of tea or coffee and relax with an excellent chocolate bar. There's nothing like the crackle of the foil and then the snap of the bars as you break it in two. Lovely. Oh, I'm getting carried away.
To the serious matter at hand...
What is an orange KitKat?
Well, it is a standard chocolate KitKat biscuit (which are essentially "two cripsy wafer fingers" as described on the packet), covered with orange flavoured milk chocolate.
What of the packaging?
Each two-fingered biscuit is wrapped in foil and partially wrapped with a slim cover, so the foil is still visible along the length of the biscuit. This particular version has the KitKat logo on the left hand side and a picture of oranges on the right. I have to admit that I originally thought the picture contained lemons, but that's just my eyesight! It makes this item appear fresh, new, and inviting. For the weight-conscious, Nestle has made a prominent reminder of how 'healthy' the biscuit can be in comparison to other items, with the line "only 107 calories".
Does it taste good?
The taste is, of course, typically KitKat, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover a lovely subtle taste of orange. It wasn't overpowering or non-existent. I think it works because it is orange-flavoured chocolate rather than actually having orange pieces in it.
Yes. Perfect for a light snack on its own or with a cuppa. I think Nestle have done well with the packaging, because it makes them tempting.
I love KitKats and all the varieties that I have tried so far have not disappointed me in any way shape or form!
I love the fact they are small enough to enjoy without feeling guilty and that they are only 107 calories and 5.6g of fat.
These are two thin fingers joined together which you can snap apart or eat as a chocolate bar if you wish.
The fingers are chocolate covered wafer. With these they have a subtle and very lovely hint of orange. KitKat have the right balance and have not over powered them with artificial tasting orange. They are not as strong for example as Terry's Chocolate Orange in the flavour.
Where they aren't too strong it makes me want more but I am trying to resist the temptation before me.
These come in a pack of nine bars and at the moment Asda have them on offer at just £1 per pack, brilliant!
I highly recommend these wonderful little bars to satisfy anyone's chocolate craving, very good indeed!
