I’m not too bothered with the KitKat chocolate bar, it’s not something I eat on a regular basis but thought I would review the Canadian version of the product since it was on sale.
Each country appears to have its own quality of chocolate they use in their recipes and Canada is no exception. Whenever I used to visit Paris or Brussels friends used to ask me to buy KitKat there as the quality of chocolate appeared to be better than the UK. So, how does the Canadian version pair up to its European counterpart?
- The quality of the chocolate isn’t too bad at all, certainly wasn’t gross, I had the milk chocolate variety.
- Either my hands have got bigger or the bars have become significantly reduced in size and the price has increased.
- I couldn’t eat the whole bar in one go, it lasted me two days. I just don’t eat as much chocolate any more.
- The packaging has changed since the last KitKat I had in the UK, many years ago. It had an inner foil wrapper and an outer paper wrapper. I actually prefer that compared to the one wrapper they provide today which I found fiddly to open, but not a big issue I guess.
- The chocolate melted quite quickly and I had it on a fairly cold day, I don’t recall that happening before.
- There was no bad after taste in my mouth.
- The wafer didn’t feel as crunchy as I remember it to be in Europe.
It was just….ok, but not something I would buy on a regular basis. I would save up my money and buy chocolate from independent stores or small businesses.
The KitKat website displays a range of products that I have never seen before, at least they aren’t available at any of the locations I shop at. I often see a couple of different varieties in Asian supermarkets not available from Canadian retailers. Some of the products listed on the KitKat Canada website link to Amazon, London Drugs etc but some I have no idea where you would purchase. Maybe they want to devoted fan to go out there and hunt for them but don’t have the energy for that.
