Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Low Carb Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Low Carb
Posted: 20:29 Sun 25-Jul-2004. Price: 60 something pence (I forget). Location: Superdrug, Selby. Nutritional unusualness: Polydextrose (20%).
"Phillerena" reports: Comes in silver foil wrapping with the lovely new Nestle "heart shaped" logo perched on the corner. It feels a lot lighter than a normal Kit Kat, but the taste is very much similar to a regular Kit Kat, at least while you are eating it. However, when you have finished, a nasty aftertaste hits you, and doesn't go away for quite a while. This really spoils what would be a nice low carb treat. Still, a luxury compared to the low carb Rolos, which just taste odd. I would avoid this, along with low carb Rolos, and go for the diabetic chocolates that others have mentioned.

..."Phillerena" confirms an unillustrated sighting from "blech" here, who could only remember that he paid "over a quid" for one at WH Smiths, North Terminal, Gatwick Airport, commenting: Spotted along with a couple of other Nestle low carb/ high price items, before the onslaught that was the US and its fun new obsession with low carb (including C2 Coke, low carb fried chicken - they leave off the coating, low carb BBQ sauce, and every restaurant ever having a low carb option). In more Anglocentric Atkins-friendliness, Hovis have launched a "25% less carbohydrate" Best With Less Loaf (73p in Asda), while Low Carb Crunch (69p/ 40g bag) is a "full protein diet snack" aimed at women, while admitting they're basically the "traditionally male preserve" of Pork Scratchings.

Comment: Q1- you would have to pay me to eat a Hershey Bar, they're disgusting. Q2- guacamole flavoured Doritos, and Lindt Pyrenees. Q3- no. What would be the point?

Comment: They can't be sold for more than around 89p as thats the rough online price for a few stores though they sold them in a shop by me a few weeks ago for 50p each (cookies & cream & crunchy cookie)so there must be a cheap UK wholesaler that you can source them from. I know It's not candy but I would love to obtain maple soda.
