Kit Kat "Strawberry"


This might be the moment I officially declare that they've gone too far with the whole versioning of chocolate bars. I'm saying this without having tried it yet. I'm also saying this knowing full well that chocolate and strawberry do often go well together. Maybe I should shut my mouth and try it... well I can't shut my mouth and eat it but I think you know what I'm talking about.

So here's the deal. It smells like strawberry. The minute I opened the package I figured that this was not just set dressing, this bar was going to be strawberry. But really, at first when you bite into it you get nothing but a standard Kit Kat flavour, not so much strawberry. It's another case of the flavour of the original bar overpowering the added flavour (in this case strawberry). Rather than finding a creative way to blend these two flavours, they just added a strawberry flavour to the chocolate. There is a strawberry aftertaste, but it's not that great. It tastes a little like strawberry Nestle Quick instead of real strawberries, and this is not one of my favorite drinks.

I just can't figure out why you would want to make a Kit Kat strawberry flavoured. Why would they want to put it out into the world and not really do it well is even more mind-boggling. I'm not saying that I could figure out a way to make this taste combo work better, but I just think it could be done better than this.
