Nestle Strawberry Milk Chocolate KitKat

Strawberry KitKats

I am rather backlogged with reviews right now. I haven't been uploading as much as I'd like to, due to some real world responsibilities, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of it now. These strawberry KitKats have been at my house for over a month and I'm just now getting to them.

I was on the fence about buying them when I saw them in Ann Arbor, MI, since I've tried many strawberry KitKats in the past. The milk chocolate base was what pushed me over the edge, and I caved in and made the purchase in the hopes that these would not be as overwhelmingly sweet as their white chocolate cousins.

Strawberry KitKat

It smelled like strawberry milk with a hint of cocoa when I opened the wrapper, and the wafers on the inside mostly smelled like chocolate. Thankfully, these weren't melted.

The strawberry flavor was quite mild, and every now and then, there was a little burst of fruitiness. It was definitely artificial, but as I had hoped, these weren't as sweet as the white chocolate kind. All in all, a solid KitKat. Nothing spectacular, but definitely good.

How keen, you were in my home town!

So, did these wind up with the Strawberry Quick sort of artificial flavor or the Frankenberry sort of artificial flavor? Or something else all together?

Definitely Strawberry Quick!

I love Ann Arbor, I go there a couple times a year.

Mmmm, Strawberry Quick. I might have to find me some of these...for science you understand.

A2's a pretty cool town, if I may show my bias :)
