Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Luscious Lime Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Luscious Lime
Posted: 13:12 Fri 03-Sep-2004. Price: 40p. Location: Cambridge City Centre. Nutritional unusualness: 20.3% lime-cream-yoghurt filling. They still insist on using those hydrogenated vegetables to make it slightly unhealthier than it need be.
"PC" reports: Hmmm. Desperately searching for a genuinely "light and fruity" yet chocolatey alternative to chocolate. This, like its lemon-flavoured predecessor, is not such a product. It's very similar to the lemon one except for the considerably stronger odour upon opening the packet, which, as artificial lime flavour always does, simply screams "TOILET CLEANER". The white chocolate is once again too cloying to go with the flavour and makes it too sickly to enjoy beyond the first finger. It also doesn't complement the lime, it merely remains in the mouth for too long after eating, like some sort of instant plaque ingredient.

...And top marks to (first-time?) spotter "PC" here for this evocative sighting, just getting in before the (unillustrated) musings of "Garf", who (inaccurately) hypothesised: Saw this in a [London EC2A] newsagents earlier today, didn't buy one as I didn't have any spare cash, but I guess it is a lime flavour Kit Kat, much like the earlier lemon & yoghurt ones. I think it is the coating that is lime flavoured, rather than the wafer core. Looks very refreshing... Still, "Garf" may yet be able to redeem himself, as he then promises that he saw the Rich Golden Caramel Kit Kat Edition "in the same shop as the Luscious Lime Kit Kat, but while that was a standard Kit Kat shape, this was in a Chunky style, and seems to have a rich vein of caramel goo running throughout. The packaging seemed very upmarket, and the 'Editions' tag would indicate that there will be a range of other special Kit Kats on the way. I'll get one and report back tomorrow..."

Comment: I think these are actually sicklier than the lemon/yoghurt ones, if that's possible.

Comment: can anyone tell the difference between this and the lemon one in a blind tasting? (I was eating it in semi-darkness and therefore couldn't tell if it's more vividly green)

Comment: Don't know about the colour, definitely thought this tasted more of green wine gums more than anything else. A most bizarre product. Does anyone know what we're supposed to make of the giggling girles on the back of the packet?

Comment: I bought one of these whilst drunk on Friday night... It was in some remote wine shop in Harborne, Birmingham. Called War Lane Cellar. Its better than you'd think it'd taste but you'd never want another one coz of the sicklyness of it. Just like eating chocolate pretzels - only its not a pretzel.

Comment: fraid not Nebbish - the Lime Kit Kat was at the kid carpet gig at the weekend, and the Seville Orange Edition at the cinema yesterday. and the cloak of darkness was a wise choice, i may add, now I've seen the mad grinning women on the back of the lime packet in the full light of day...

Comment: I spotted one in Selby. Not sure how much I paid for it now. Its ok. Well, I scoffed it down anyway. You can taste the lime. Maybe good in 'CHUNKY' version!!

Comment: I finally managed to get my hands on this. Yesterday, I saw it in my local Woolworthes for the first time. It was OK, but more sickly than the lemon & yoghurt ones which I much prefer. I'm still waiting for the Christmas Pudding flavour, one I want to try.

Comment: Lime Kit Kat and Blood Orange have made their way to cheap shops like Jack Fultons already (a sign of their lack of popularity?), and are being sold 5 for £1. Though there is a choice of other chocolate bars that you can mix them with, such as Double Cream and even...Cadbury Caramel Eggs.
