It looks like Nestle has found a concept it likes (or maybe their customers have spoken), because not only do we add Matcha to the previously released dark and white chocolate “adult sweetness” KitKats, but also Raspberry (to be reviewed soon).
Whereas the chocolate varieties were less sweet than typical, with dark chocolate biscuits inside (instead of the usual wafers), this has what seems to be a vanilla biscuit, and tastes quite sweet — about as sweet as Matcha Latte KitKats, which is to say: a little too sweet for my liking. Like all of the adult sweetness flavors, the wrapping is very elegant, and sweet or no, these will satisfy a green tea dessert craving if you’ve got one.
Nestle appears to be skimping a little, since recent bags of minis have come with twelve individually wrapped pairs rather than thirteen. That’s sad in itself, but practically speaking, it also means I have to zoom in a little tighter when taking pictures! Boos all around.
Oh, look, another one? Surprise! The “Adult Sweetness” in these raspberry KitKats doesn’t come from a cookie center like other flavors in the line — these have wafers like regular KitKats do. Instead, in between the wafers are thick layers of tart, gooey raspberry jam. It gives these bars a toothsome quality which is really appealing and both the texture and flavor counterbalance the sweet coating nicely. I’m not the hugest fan of raspberries, but these may be the best KitKats I’ve had in a while.
Like the matcha flavor, these come twelve to a bag, and I found them in Uwajimaya in Bellevue. I only bring that up, because, you guys! There is a gigantic liquor store next door now. Which is relevant to my interests.
