Nestle Strawberry KitKat

Strawberry KitKat

Seems Nestle puts out a strawberry KitKat every year. I received this one in a package from a friend a few weeks ago and just now am getting around to it.

I pretty much knew what to expect, because they can't have changed much about it from last year's (or other strawberry KitKats before).

Strawberry KitKat

The strawberry smell was intense, and a little fake. For the most part, the flavor was the same way. It seemed like there were some real strawberry bits in there, but not many. I wish it was more like the Meiji strawberry bar as far as real strawberry pulp. The white chocolate tasted super sweet, but didn't burn my throat. I don't know if the time I spent eating dessert in Disney World last week has built me up a sugar tolerance, though.

Overall, it was only okay. The flavor was pretty generic strawberry-flavor white chocolate. It's not one of my favorites, but it's not bad. I hear there's a matcha tiramisu flavor coming out soon, so I'll be on the lookout.

For more thoughts on this KitKat, have a look at ZOMG, Candy and Japanese Snack Reviews

The pink colour of the chocolate looks really fake. I can imagine this one would be too sweet for me.
Wonder why they keep bringing ajiwai ichigo back? They must think everyone likes strawberry... :) Nice post!

Strawberry was pretty popular when I was younger. But this one wasn't nearly as sweet as the caramel macchiato McFlurry one!

Strawberries are my favorite food in life...but I abhor strawberry-flavored snacks/jams/stuff. KitKat just couldn't resist, hunh?

That's how I feel about bananas. Well, I wouldn't say that they are my favorite, but I love them, and I can't stand banana-flavored stuff.
