Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kit Kat White Lemon and Yoghurt/ Milkybar Mini Cakes Confirmed sighting: Kit Kat White Lemon and Yoghurt/ Milkybar Mini Cakes
Posted: 10:29 Thu 13-05-2004. Price: 33p. Location: Asda, Walthamstow E17. Nutritional unusualness: "Have a cool break".
"Xena the Chocolate Princess" reports: These were in a bin near the entrance with the message "Once they're gone they're gone". Truly delicious. The lemon flavour tones down the slight sickliness of white chocolate.

...A brief but tantalising sighting from first-time spotter "Xena" there, adding credence to Nestle's hopes that its "light fruit flavour" will boost "summer chocolate sales". In a separate Nestle white-chocolate-ish development, "Diarmuid Mallon" followed up his Smarties Mini Cakes sighting (and, er, "constructive criticism" about his close-up photography) with this positively CSI-worthy analysis of Milkybar Mini Cakes (1.29 for 9 mini sponge cakes in Asda, Lower Early Reading), commenting: Unlike the solid chocolate of the Smarties cakes, these have a rather moorish icing made with Milkybar chocolate. There is also more sponge compared to the Smarties cakes. The only let down is the cardboard-like paste decorations. Best peeled off and binned. But other confectioners aren't taking this lying down, as Fruittella unleash the Cream bag whose existence was previously hinted at by "Stuart", while M and M's (US) commemorate the release of Shrek 2 with both their new "Ogre-sized" variety *and* somewhat excessive use of the word "ogre" in a press release that contains the quote: "Nothing says big chocolate taste like ogre-sized M and M's; add that to the biggest movie and the biggest star, and you've got an unbeatable recipe for ogre-sized fun."

Comment: Tried the Kit Kat White Lemon with Yoghurt. Found in Little Clacton, Essex. Enjoyable, but the lemon filling didn't really do it for me. Didn't find the white chocolate sickly, but I love white chocolate anyway. Overall it was ok (as I appreciate all chocolate!), but the citrus taste was a bit weird.

Comment: bought mine in a newsagents on the staines road near feltham, middx.

Comment: Had a Kitkat white lemon on Sat from Asda in Arnold, Notts. Not bad at all, the lemon seems to compliment the white chocolate, but its a bit sickly after the 3rd finger !

Comment: does anyone know how many calories in these things or are we supposed to guess? Are they better for you than chocolate because they are yoghurt? or are they neglecting to tell us because there's a sinister ingredient in them!!

Comment: got hold of one of these yesterday and a bit surprised that no-one's mentioned this is almost certainly the "lemon cheesecake" flavour previously sold in "Germany and Japan": http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0402191317sbc

personally, wasn't too thrilled by the flavour but impressed that it does seem to be ordinary white chocolate with the lemon "yoghurt" flavour coming exclusively from the cream filling

re: "better for you than chocolate because they are yoghurt?" - haven't had a chance to compare the ingredients with a normal Kit Kat but if there's extra hydrogenated vegetable fat because of the cream, then it's probably going to be slightly worse for you than Kit Kat Classic

Comment: yes, very cheese-cakey and quite nice. But no-convinced I'd but these too often. A nice change for the summer, but my question is... what do you drink with? My normal peppermint or re-bush tea over powers the subtle taste of the bar.

Comment: Just got one in the mad mental newsagent out front of Glasgow Central Station. 45p! Possibly their night-time price or just the fact they are robbers. Nice, but strange. The lemon does have a lasting after taste. As it has the ultra sweet white chocolate, it won't help my diabetes, but will be loved by the junkies who hang outside the shop.

They aren't mixing very well with my regular Tetley tea in drawstring bags (cheap at Sumerfield this week.)

Comment: Ok, finally got to try one of these and it tasted like an, as yet uninvented, Lemon PEZ flavour toothpaste but with crunchy bits in... in a good way.

Comment: I paid 49p for a Lemon & Yoghurt Kit Kat in a newsagents on Baker Street. Can any readers beat that appalling retailer mark-up?
Posted: 11:20 Sat 29-05-2004 by "Phil C" # permalink comment
Comment: My friend says that these taste like Nestle just peed in the kitkat mix and sold it. Personally, I quite like it. The lemon overpowers the white chocolate a bit though. I would have preffered orange rather than lemon in the kitkat. If this is Nestle's only weapon in the fight to get Kitkat back to Number 1, they need ro try harder.

Comment: Got one of these wretched lemon kit kat efforts at Woolworths in Southport. Really quite rancid. Whatever will they think of next?

Comment: Do you know, Kit Kats are for sale on e-bay -

http://search.ebay.com/kit-kat_W0QQsorecordstoskipZ0

Does anyone know the difference between lemon cheescake kit kat and the lemon and yoghurt ones we get in the UK (if there is one)? Are they just the same product?

Comment: I was a little suspicious when I first saw these on sale, thinking they would be sickly like those new Mars things....but was very suprised. I'd like to see a Chunky version of these done as well.

Go very good with coffee ;)

Comment: I think cybercandy have white kitkats, (not the lemon ones), but also they are not chunky ones either. I used to love the white kit kat chunky too, I can't unerstand why they stopped making it.

Comment: Found a place on the web that sells white kit kat chunkys!!!!http://www.worldofsweets.de ...unfortunately for us the postage is at least 10 euros so it's probably best to buy in bulk!

Comment: You can find the white chunky in the UK if you look hard enough. There was a butchers shop selling some in Pontefract recently but they all went and they havent replenished their stock since. I *actually* had the last one ;)

Comment: whoa mouton - you can speak german? I can't. Anyway, I've bought kit kats from japan, canada, the U.K., and the U.S on ebay. Found the melon KK on ebay yesterday

Comment: I can only speak a bit, but even I can tell this is a Kitkat Chunky White for 0,69 Euros, and "in den Wagen" means "(put) in cart". Sehr gut, ja?

Comment: According to http://www.irn-talkingshop.co.uk/categorymanager/nestlerowntree/nestle%20temp/

the lemon & yoghurt KitKat was the number 2 selling chocolate product of the summer, Mars Delight being number 1.

Comment: actually the KK inside out was excellent. I live in the US and tried one, and thought it was good (and I hate hershey)

Comment: Phil C. - can't tell you if they are the same taste or not but one major difference is the Japanese Hokkaido Lemon Cheesecake Kit Kats have been discontinued here in Japan for quite some time.. And they rarely bring back the unusual flavors. :(

Comment: The Kit Kat Yoghurt, Lemon And Strawberry White Chocolare Bar seemed to be rather of an odd idea. Yet, in someway it was different to others bars I have tasted. Even though the flavour is different, you still do feel the same Kit Kat sensation in your mouth. I simply loved it. Great taste, great sensation, worth while in every since. Something new, so go on, go dip yourself into one of these fruity flavours. 28660 4
