Wow – I can’t tell you how excited I am to have one of these bars sitting in front of me!
This Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter may be part of the new Limited Edition range of Kit Kat Chunkys currently frequenting our shelves, but we have seen this bar before in the UK. It was discontinued in 2009 to my dismay and replaced by the caramel version. If you too have been missing the bar, you now have a chance to get it back on to British shelves permanently! You can vote for its return on the Facebook page (there are some other choices on that page too – but seriously who cares about them).
So with some excitement I unpacked this fabulous bar. I found one giant Chunky stick, neatly marked so that it could be broken into three pieces. I snapped the first chunk off and had a look at the layers of wafer, chocolate and that warm beige blanket of peanut butter, and a smile appeared on my face.
As I sunk my teeth in the peanut butter and chocolate blended together and created a flavour match made in heaven. The smooth but thick paste of peanut butter brought a rich nuttiness and a touch of salt, it filled the senses, and blended with the sweet cocoa flavours. It’s so much more than a bar, it’s an experience for the taste buds. As the bar is in the Chunky range it feels wonderfully substantial and filling to get your teeth into. This is my little corner of chocolate heaven, and I do not understand why we don’t have more peanut butter and chocolate options available in the UK. It’s crazy, we are all missing out, if you don’t believe you need to hunt down this Kit Kat and see what chocolate bars could really be like!
This previously discontinued Kit Kat left a peanut butter shaped hole in my heart. I will be voting for the Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter daily and keeping my fingers crossed for its return.
On the off chance it doesn’t make it back, I’m guess I’m going to have to bulk buy the Limited Edition version... anyone know if you can freeze Kit Kats?
