It's great to see a new Kit Kat flavour in the UK that isn't for their Chunky range. I much prefer the regular four-finger variety and I was excited to spot this new Limited Edition Toffee Treat Kit Kat. At first I though this might be just a larger version of the Toffee Treat 2 finger variety that came out last year (available at Tesco in multipacks - see a review here), which was half toffee and half chocolate, but as you can see from my photos this Limited Edition appears to be a bit different.
Once I opened up the Toffee Treat I was greeeted with a toffee flavoured white chocolate covered Kit Kat. On the packaging the chocolate is actually described as "a blend of toffee flavour white (53%) and milk (13%) chocolates". It looks so appealing and completely different from any Kit Kat I've reviewed before. It reminds me a little of some of the awesome Kit Kat flavours from Japan.
The toffee chocolate itself is very creamy and sweet. It has a subtle caramelised sugar edge that gives it a smooth caramel like flavour. It reminds me a bit of the sugary sweet Caramac bars with their caramel flavoured chocolate (although I haven't had one of those for years so I may be wrong!), which might be a plus point for anyone who misses the Kit Kat Caramac bar of a few years ago. The whole thing, whilst very enjoyable, is extemely sweet, almost a little throat burningly so. Luckily I was sharing this bar, so I could really enjoy the few pieces I ate. I recommend having a strong cup of coffee to hand when eating one to counteract the sugariness!
Have you tried the Kit Kat Toffee Treat? I'd love to know what you thought of it in the comments below.
RATING: 8 out of 10 - sugary sweet but still awesome.
