The first one I pull from the package is a Cookies & Cream KitKat. I can’t compare it side-by-side with the similar sounding Cookies & Milk KitKat, but comparison isn’t always a good idea, is it, Mrs. Freud?
It is moody in flavour, its sweetness tempered with a dark chocolate undertaste. It is smooth. I like it. It doesn’t have that waxy artifice some of its siblings exhibit. It is the perfect gentle comfort food to help one get over a cold and flu. Thank you, Jimrin. Many, many thanks. 13 months ago
I like toffee. It balances the organic and healthy aim of one’s day to day. Without a wee bit of candy, the ascetic life can be a glum existence.
I expected a flood of toffee from this kit kat because the package illustration indicated something glorious lay within, waiting to pour forth like the mighty Susquehanna.
There was no Susquehanna, but the kit kat was good, very good. I shared it with two young lads who did not give two hoots about the aesthetics of life.
I shall be on the lookout for another of these. It’s CANADIAN! 19 months ago
The kitkat is at its best when it has achieved subtlety in its novelty. This one tastes like a Jacob’s Club biscuit, thus it conceives wild recollections of a misspent youth. It features, under its chocolate coating, a vanilla cookie layer and under that, the usual wafer-and-filling business upon which kitkat dreams are spun. I like this one, so I ate the rest of it beyond the first cursory bite. 22 months ago
Teru came to visit from Japan last night. He has a mad passion for Pizza Pizza and Tim Horton’s. I had no idea I had any true patriot love for either of these things until I found m’self standing in a long line behind a busload of students in the middle of a Timmie’s in East Whatever, a few days ago. I ordered a medium double-double, shamelessly, and felt a surge of pride. I regretted not ordering a large.
When Teru arrived, I ordered an “extra sauce, on the bottom” pepperoni special and poured a couple of glasses of decent red.
Oh yes – the kit kat. It is divine! It tastes like a fresh perfumy cantaloupe draped in a cloak of milk chocolate! 2 years ago
