A quick review of the new Kit Kat Vegan which has hit the shelves this week in Sainsbury's. I managed to find a stand full of them in a smaller Sainsbury's Local store after having no luck in the larger stores near me.
Kit Kat has always been one of my favourite chocolate bars and as a kid I would annoy everyone around me by nibbling all the chocolate off the edges first before eating the wafer layers. Thankfully I've outgrown that!
I had high hopes for the Kit Kat Vegan and it mostly delivered a very similar flavour to the original Kit Kat - even my kids found it hard to tell the difference. The vegan chocolate is well done and what it lacks in milky flavour it makes up for in sweetness. I was worried that it would taste like a dark chocolate Kit Kat but the sweet chocolate here is not bitter at all. I do wish the chocolate had a creamier flavour but understandably that is quite hard to acheive in a vegan chocolate.
Overall this is a successful vegan alternative of a classic chocolate bar and that's great news for anyone following a dairy free or vegan diet.
