What's All The Fuss About Peanut Butter KitKat?

When I saw this little baby lined up on the newsagent's shelf, I didn't quite get it. Didn't we already have Kit Kat Chunky PEANUT flavour? And how was the peanut butter flavour any different? Well, in the interests of investigation, I bought one and tried it. (Aren't I good to you, eh?)


The Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter flavour is different to that of the peanut flavour. While the peanut part inside the original 'peanut' version was quite firm in texture, this is softer and seems a little bit saltier and more peanut-like. It's my new favourite chocolate bar at the moment.

Or at least it would be, if I could get my hands on another one. I went back to the shop to find that they'd sold out and didn't know when they would be getting any more in. This made me more determined, and every time I've gone past a newsagents or corner shop I've poked my head inside to see if they have any. They never do. So I asked Nestlé what was going on. "All promotional stock was distributed nationwide at the start of this promotion," they told me, "and demand for the limited edition Kit Kat Chunky bars was phenomenal!"

I learned that this particular variety was the winning flavour from a customer vote - kind of like X-Factor I guess for Kit Kats - called Choose a Chunky Champion. NestlĂ© added: "Peanut Butter Kit Kat Chunky has now become a permanent line and is available to buy from most stores." Phew, that's a relief.

What do you reckon? Have you tried the Peanut Butter Kit Kat Chunky? Can you get your hands on one? What do you think of it?
