Kit Kat conundrum.....

I do like a biscuit with my tea.

If I'm feeling virtuous I'll make do with a Rich Tea or Hobnob, but if money (and calories) are no object it has to be a Kit Kat every time.

If I'm really pushing the boat out, my biscuit of choice is the fabulous Chunky Kit Kat.... the  indisputable king of the crossover confectionery/biscuit world.  

I once had one that was ALL CHOCOLATE... no biscuit at all.  That was a day which will live in my memory forever.

However, I'm currently missing out on a major Kit Kat event... the release of 4 new trial flavours.  It would appear that Hastings/St Leonards are Kit Kat free zones.  I've scoured the shelves at Tesco, and various other local convenience stores to no avail.  I can't find any of the new flavours anywhere.

Personally I think mint would be my favourite, but coconut might just shade it.  And who knows.... either choc fudge or hazelnut might beat both of those into a cocked hat.


I may never know unless I can track down these elusive delights.

Also, in an inspired piece of marketing, you can vote for your favourite on Facebook, because apparently, only one of the four flavours will survive to join the fabled Kit Kat pantheon.

So, as a dedicated Chunky Kit Kat fan, I owe it to myself, and other aficionados to sample all four and submit my considered opinion......the search continues.....

EDIT - since this post earlier today, I have successfully tracked down a source of the new Chunky Kit Kats in St. Leonards on Sea.  I now have a Mint and Choc Fudge to sample at my leisure..... probably in bed later with a cup of tea.
My findings will be announced anon.......

I quite fancy that Hazelnut one. But I haven't seen one...

I wonder if they're deliberately making them rare as hen's teeth to ramp up their desirability.

If I do manage to find any I'm going to have to stock up.

Yum. Kit Kats were my favorite until I discovered Twix. I would love to try the hazelnut one. That flavor just might top Twix!

Mmmmm.... Twix are also rather gorgeous, but Chunky Kit Kats still take the biscuit... ;)

The Hazelnut ones are the best! Don't like the coconut ones though.

Joyce.... I've now tried the Mint and Choc Fudge. Out of those two I much preferred the Mint which was delishus.
I'll have to try the hazelnut and coconut as well though... just to be fair!
