Last but by no means least, the panels most anticipated flavour of all four contenders this week - the Kit Kat Chunky Coconut. If you had asked us all what flavours Nestle would have chosen for the competition this year I don't think too many would have come up with the suggestion of Coconut. Not even in the Far East where they have every flavour Kit Kat flavour under the sun have we seen a Kit Kat Coconut offering before. For that reason this one carried the most intrigue for the panel.
Unsealing the foil wrapper the flavour theme became immediately apparent with an unfortunate fake smelling coconut set of scents fast forthcoming. Suffice to say expectations were straight away lowered and they were further when we saw there was no coconut creme layer. Indeed rather than the desired cool layer of creamy coconut creme we were presented with what looked like a standard Kit Kat Chunky - oh how we wish it tasted like one. Yes indeed the bar wasn't great. The smells were highly indicative of the properties of the coconut flavouring and it was a very fake, chemically derived coconut influence integrated into the milk chocolate. It made the already sweet chocolate even more sugary and it fast became very sickly and mono-flavoured-toned. Out of a panel of four none said they would buy it again. Its a bummer to end the week on a low but the truth has to be told.
