Coffee Kit Kat Extra Creamy Kit Kat

Personally, I’ve always found Kit Kat bars to be rather creamy already, so when I saw the Extra Creamy Limited Edition bar, I was intrigued. Next to it in the store was a Limited Edition Coffee Kit Kat so, of course, I had to try both!

Extra Creamy: The extra creamy Kit Kat really didn’t taste any different to me. It just seemed to melt faster. Perhaps that’s what extra creamy means. I guess M&Ms will never come out with a limited edition extra creamy brand of M&Ms or that would ruin their whole “melts in your mouth, not in your hands” motto. . . but I digress. It was definitely a good Kit Kat, but I don’t think the candy world should shed any tears when this limited edition bar goes out of season. It doesn’t taste different enough from the regular bar to warrant even picking it up. Now the Coffee Kit Kat, that’s an entirely different story. . .

Coffee: I, for one, am not a fan of coffee. I do, however, enjoy the smell of coffee, but that’s as far as it goes. Because of this, I had my fiance, who really likes coffee, give me his opinion of the coffee Kit Kat. First of all, the moment he opened the package, it was like we were in the coffee aisle at the grocery store. It was seriously pungent. We were both hopeful that this would be an excellent addition to the Kit Kat bar family. I had no idea that this would only end in tears. He tasted the bar, he was less than pleased. He insisted I try it, even though I already dislike coffee. It’s like that SNL skit where one person tastes bad milk and offers it to everyone else at the table saying, “this is terrible, you have to try it”. So I tried it. I would say it tasted like coffee. . . grinds. Seriously, it was like chewing up coffee grinds.

Maybe it was the crunchiness of the wafer inside that made me think that, but it was the worst chocolate candy bar either of us had ever tasted. Neither of us could even swallow it. We left the Coffee Kit Kat carcass on the coffee table while we began to watch a movie and a few minutes into it, I had to go throw the candy in the trash can because the mere smell of it made me feel ill. Lesson learned, just because it smells good, doesn’t mean it tastes good.

To sum up, Extra Creamy Kit Kat – just as good as the original, it just melts faster. Coffee Kit Kat – spawn of Satan, stay away.

    I’m not a big fan of chocolate either, but I decided to try the Japanese “Cafe Latte” Kit Kat (which I figure is similar, except it’s made of white chocolate). If I LIKED coffee, I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed it more. It didn’t taste like coffee grinds at least. It tasted like…coffee and sugar. But too much coffee taste for me to enjoy it.
