‘Pop Choc’ in Kit Kat and Lion Bar Varieties (99p Store)
Earlier in the month I found Kit Kat Pop Choc Yoghurt, and mentioned that the Kit Kat Pop Chocs that its made with are from a sharing bag of Kit Kat pieces available in Europe. I was wondering around the pound shops and sitting on a shelf in front of me was this, the actual Kit Kat Pop Chocs I was referring to, and next to them Lion Bar Pop Chocs too!
Obviously I was excited to find them, and when I got home I ripped the top of the bag open (following the indents showing me where to rip). Sadly this did not open the bag! It was still perfectly sealed, so I had to intervene with scissors. I hate packets that don’t work, but I’ll forgive them if the chocolate is good!
Kit Kat Pop Choc
These consist of a small ball of Kit Kat flavour chocolate with a lovely crisp light wafer crunch. They are sweet and easy to eat, and I felt a better flavour than those in the yoghurt, but this may be due to the fact I was eating these ones straight. They certainly are easy to munch on, and get my thumbs up! A good Kit Kat sharing experience.
Lion Bar Pop Choc
These confused me for a moment when I first saw them, because these chocolate have spots, which is not something you see every day! Full size Lion Bars are bobbly, so I guess when you mimic that in miniature the easiest thing is spots! Should these be leopard pop chocs though because of it?
Each chocolate has similar flavour to proper Lion Bar chocolate and this time the crunch is provided by crispies which is rather nice. What was missing from the Lion Bar experience was that lovely caramel to add a little chew, but all in all these are very nice chocolates.
I really don’t know why these aren’t on standard release in the UK. The sharing bags are really popular at the minute, and so are Kit Kats so it strikes me they would sell like hot cakes, even at a premium price in expensive newsagents. They are lovely chocs and well worth hunting down in the import / discount shops.
