Kit Kat extra crispy


They’re calling this Kit Kat extra crispy but honey it ain't all that extra crispy. More crisp, yes maybe, but extra choc too. To put it scientifically, the wafer:choc ratio doesn’t differ much from regular KK. It's one big oversized stick instedda the 4-plex you get w/ a regular KK. Formerly a ltd edition (and was it not called "extra thick" back then?), this so-called extra crispy got promoted to permanent status. Methinks better candidates mighta been KK mint or KK coffee; but the biggest disappointment, Kit-Kat-wise, is the fact that it contains a big dose of evil palm kernel oil, highly saturated-&-bad-4-U.

Your links are CHOICE today. Fucking GREAT. Though, I do have a better one for 4-plex.

I used to eat these all the time. They were called big Kat's. Why the name change?

I can't presume to speak for Hershey, but doesn't "extra crispy" sound more tantalizing than words like "big" or "fat"? Even if "crispy" brings to mind fried chicken rather than candy.

I will mail you $5 if you LAY OFF THE SWEETS FOR A DAY. No potato chips to write about? No hamburgers? There is more to the world than sugar

Clairevoyant, are you referring to that link that shows the entire family of Kit Kats? I was amazed to see them all! I'm not a fan of the palm kernel oil. But I will eat Kit Kats anyway - im moderation.

anonymous, thanks for verifying my suspicion that this is just a sleazy name change. i guess, as peanut gallery speculates, "crispy" is a better name than Big or Chunky or whatever they were calling it.

i hope heart attack isn't really about to have one. i would love to have a salty item to write about tomorrow but all i have on my plate is sweet. i do occasionally write about non-sweet items but really, as i've said about a million frickin times, my goal is to follow what is new, and unfortunately for folks like you, most of the action lies in the sweet zone

Sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami. What else is there to write about? Besides catshit, of course.

KitKat Trivia
One of the ingredients used in the production of KitKats is... KitKats! Part of the filling is made from KitKat bars which were damaged during the manufacturing process.


Interesting. Isn't that a bit like what they do with chickens?
