NEW Kit Kat Chunky Coconut Review

Nestle have released four new Kit Kat Chunky flavours which again ask the public to vote for their favourite. It's time to "Choose A(nother) Chunky Champion". As a self confessed coconut addict imagine how excited I got when my brother found this Kit Kat Chunky Coconut. Are you imagining? Now multiply that image by twenty and that's probably close to how excited I was. Think: five year old child on Christmas morning.

I'm not sure why the wrapper doesn't have a picture of a coconut on it, maybe that was just too obvious

Up close and unwrapped, the Kit Kat Chunky Coconut looks just like any other Kit Kat Chunky BUT the smell of coconut is immediately evident. This is because the outer chocolate is actually where all the coconut flavour is. The wrapper describes it as "crispy wafer finger covered with coconut flavour milk chocolate".

The chocolate is thick and creamy with a lovely sweet coconut flavour to it. It's quite subtle but is still strong enough to satisfy coconut lovers. I can't help but be a little disappointed that the inner wafer doesn't have any coconut flavour. It's the same wafer layers as a regular Kit Kat Chunky. I would have preferred a layer of coconut cream inbetween the wafers. Despite this, the coconut flavour in the chocolate does hold it's own quite well against the more dominant wafer layers.

Since I'm a coconut fiend I would have liked more coconut in this Kit Kat Chunky, but the subtle flavour has understandably been pitched for the more mainstream market. I still applaud Kit Kat Chunky for choosing coconut as one of their new flavours. There aren't enough coconut chocolates available (especially since weirdly enough I don't like Bounty's at all!). In a market with virtually no competition, this has become my favourite coconut chocolate bar!

Also released are the new Kit Kat Chunky flavours: Mint, Choc Fudge, and Hazelnut. Last time around the Peanut Butter Kit Kat Chunky was the victor. Which one do you think will win this time and which Kit Kat Chunky will you be voting for as your champion?

Kit Kat Review Roundup:

Kit Kat Chunky Coconut
Kit Kat Chunky Mint
Kit Kat Chunky Choc Fudge
Kit Kat Chunky Hazelnut


  1. Woah!! Kit Mint, choc fudge and hazelnut sound great!! Too bad I don't like coconut, otherwise I would try that too!

  2. When I saw your post on Twitter I was probably as excited as you were to receive this Kit Kat from your brother (aka Chocolate Finding Hero!) I made my husband take me in search of these new ones this afternoon but sadly no luck yet.
    It's good that the coconut is not too hardcore, as like you have said it will probably appeal more to the mainstream market which hopefully means people will vote for it!

    1. Aaah Hannah, I knew you would be excited about this too! I'm sorry you went on a fruitless search (or should that be chocolateless?), hopefully some will turn up soon. You HAVE to try it!

      p.s My brother loves his new nickname!

  3. Ooooh what a great find! I must must MUST have one of these now!I like the sound of the choc fudge and the hazlenut - have never been a fan of choc and mint together tho really

    1. Jo your tastes are SO similar to mine - I'm not a fan of chocolate mint either! I'm most excited to try the Choc Fudge next :)

    2. Yes they are Katherine, that's why i get excited to see your blog most days as nearly everything you review i want to try! hehe

  4. Oh my goodness! Chocolate fudge flavour! I'm definitely gonna hunt these down. A little disappointing about the lack of coconut filling but thats only 1/4 of the new flavours. Good find!

    1. Thanks Adrian! Let me know if you try them :)

  5. It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine :)

  6. I managed to grab the four of these today (at last!).

    You're ahead of the game Katherine! I'm probs going to eat one each day for the next four days, and I wonder whether I'll score them similarly to you.... Ooooooh!

  7. Hi Marcus, I'm so glad you found them. I saw them in two separate shops today so they are definitely getting easier to find!

    Not so much ahead of the game as just a pure fluke that my brother found them so early and happened to be visiting me too. It's been a great way to kick start 2013!

    Do let me know what you think of them. I predict my score for the Coconut will get higher as I try each one lol :)
