Ladies and gentlemen the new limited edition flavour Kit Kat for summer 2014 is the Kit Kat Chunky Orange!
As you will see below back in 2012 this flavour was part of the 2012 Choose a Chunky Champion campaign. Orange came 3rd with 16% of the vote, in front of Double Choc (8%) but way behind both White (29%) and the winner Peanut Butter (47%).
So why bring back a bar that got such little love in 2012!? We've no idea - it's not as if the 2014 bar is any different to the 2012 one either. It's the same orange flavoured milk chocolate wafer bar we got back then.
Are you glad to see it back? Let us know @ChocMission
ORIGINAL 2012 REVIEW
Kcal 247 Fat 12.5g Carbs 30.2g
Day Two, and becuase it's a Tuesday I've decided to throw my least favourite of the selection in to the mix (I don't like Tuesdays :D). Today the Kit Kat Chunky Orange takes it's stab at the JCM rating system. As far as I'm aware this is a bar that is new to the Chunky format, and has only previously appeared in it's two finger form - See HERE. I was interested to see how the bar would do in this 48.0g form - Just for your information all of the new four bars weigh in at 48.0g.
Out of the four this the strongest smelling of the selection, the orange scents radiated from the foil confines as soon as the seal was broken. The bar came described as a 'crispy wafer finger with orange flavoured milk chocolate' - this literally was the two finger orange Kit Kat in a grandeur form. Split in to the three blocks, this was a bar that I felt like I'd had enough of by the second. The orange flavours within the milk chocolate were desperately sugary - more so than the white chocolate. Post consuming the third block I felt that horrible throat burning sensation beginning to stir at the back of my mouth.
Overall I can see chocolate orange fans being happy enough with this bar, but I think the average consumer will be happy enough leaving this flavour to the two-finger format. I would be surprised if this 'Orange' variant took the Chunky Champion crown.
7.8 out of 10
