Kit Kat Chunky "Cinnamon"

Nestlé

Would all the chocolate bars that have way too many variations please step forward? Yes, hello Aero, Mr. Big... well, you do have a few. Butterfinger? Sure, why not? Wait a minute, where's Kit Kat? I'm sure I've seen a few variations around. I'm sure he must be around here somewhere... Oh, I see! Kit Kat has had to step so far forward that at this very moment he's somewhere in Ireland. End scene. Thanks for playing along with my little skit entitled, “There Are a Lot of Different Kit Kats.”

So here I am staring yet another Kit Kat variation wondering, again, why I do this to myself. You see, I'm not a hater of all variations, as you might think. I feel sometimes a variation can be fun, and creative. This one might fall under that category, but I also wonder if maybe the folks at Kit Kat have just run out of ideas and figured, why not cinnamon? I can't judge the bar yet since I haven't actually bitten into it, but I will say I do wonder.

It smells like cinnamon. I thought I'd give it a sniff just to see, and man does it ever smell of cinnamon. It reminds me of a scratch and sniff book I once had when I was a kid where you could smell the smells of Christmas. One of the pages had a gingerbread house that smelled a little bit like cinnamon, and I loved it. I scratched it so much the whole book reeked of cinnamon every time I opened it up. Strangely this Kit Kat Cinnamon bar brings back some Christmas memories for me.

Tasting it, I'm not really sure what to think of this bar. Does it work as a Kit Kat? I don't think so. The cinnamon flavour just doesn’t work very well with the chocolate flavour of the Kit Kat bar. It’s as if they just randomly sprinkled cinnamon on a Kit Kat without thinking about how they were going in incorporate it. I think Nestle could have come up with something better for the Kit Kat bar... Oh wait, they've already come up with almost every possible variation already. So, I guess cinnamon’s time was due. Any ideas what might be next?
