Click pic to view comments International sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Bites
Posted: 09:33 Sun 29-06-2003. Price: $2.30. Location: Melbourne, Australia. Sub-flavours: Also available in white. Nutritional unusualness: Really small Kit Kats.
"Adrian Furby" reports: "Bite sized pieces of Kit Kat, covered in milk chocolate. Bite me, munch me, eat me." These are excellent. Little roundish balls of Kit Kat. It tastes like Kit Kat, therefore it is good. Also good straight out of the fridge. The only two downsides are: As they are bite-sized pieces, you miss out on the pleasure of breaking off the fingers; they are expensive; they force you to share; and the ratio of wafer to chocolate is a little heavy on the wafer side. Oh, that's four downsides. The packet warns you to look out for the other tasty Nestle bites, so presumably Nestle's entire range of chocolate bars will be turned into small balls. Cheers Adrian, but what we really want to know is: what happened to Justin, Emma and Amanda from your informal focus group? Personally, I'm wondering if Nestle are trying this new form factor in order to prevent further disputes of the kind described by Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About, which contains the baffled admission: I eat two-fingered Kit-Kats like I'd eat any other chocolate bars of that size, i.e., without feeling the need to snap them into two individual fingers first. Margret accused me of doing this, "deliberately to annoy her".

Comment: "UK candies"? Never in my life have I heard an Englishman use the word "candies" to describe chocolate. You must be a Yank pretending to be English... or possibly an expatriate..

Comment: Regrettably, Emma chose to move to a sunnier clime, and Justin was surplus to requirements. Amanda is still here though, and her connection with the boys at the local 7-11 will keep us at the forefront of new developments in the Australian snackfoods scene. Much to the chagrin of "bob"...

Comment: Thanks for remembering me. Yes I moved interstate and where I am now does not have a 7-11 on every corner, so I have to source my own new snacks and treats. I will try to keep you all informed of new items in Adelaide South Australia. But can I suggest that you all order 'Fruchocs' over the internet. These are Adelaide made and they are excellent little balls of apricot and fruit covered in milk chocolate. I know they are not totally original but they do have the recipe set to perfection.

Comment: Surprised to see no mention of Kit Kat Balls. These are like Maltesers, but the honeycomb bit is replaced by a wafer ball (like the middle of a kit kat) and there's some white stuff (like the cream from the middle of a kit kat wafer) between this and the chocolate. Not very nice, and I haven't seen them outside France yet... Maybe they deserve each other?

Comment: I find this site useful to look at for my work (i work for a food company) so I think it is great that anyone from anywhere can contribute new products they have seen (even if it is Australia). BTW bob did you know that Australia is used as a test market for most new food products due to its diverse array of ethnic residents and conceqeuntly most products launched in Australia are usually quite innovative and therefore important.

Comment: That's a bit harsh, clumsy "bob" impersonator (due to complex contractual arrangements, the site *does* in fact only exist for his benefit, as it turns out!)

Comment: Snackspot do you no who that was who sent them! and if i want to edit paste new products on this site i bloody well will, and neil get a life!

Comment: I believe the point is more along the lines of, if you wish to copy and paste new products onto this site, fine.. but when 'International Sightings' come along, and are clearly identified as such, don't complain. Many viewers of this site (including myself) are interested in these sightings, and wish to read them. So they shouldn't just stop them completely because you don't want to read them. And.. yeah. That's about it.
