Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Blood Orange Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Blood Orange
Posted: 11:35 Thu 23-Sep-2004. Price: 45p. Location: BP Petrol Station, Flixton, Manchester. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Nick Tanner" reports: I saw this Kit Kat early Monday morning but had no dosh to purchase it. Not sure that I had actually seen what I thought I had seen, I returned to the petrol station last night. Luckily there were 4 left in the box on the till counter (unfortunately the Caramel Aeros had gone). This 4-finger Kit Kat boasts "over 20%" Blood Orange Cream filling. For me it works - with 2 blood red layers between wafers in the finger, it is not overpowering, I much prefer a flavored filling instead of the flavored chocolate variety. I will certainly buy again if I see them and hope they are around longer than Halloween.

...OK, I have to admit I was initially skeptical of "Nick's" sighting of yet another Kit Kat variant, assuming it to be a possible misreading of the Seville Orange "Edition" featured here just the other week. But as he (and the scary face on the top-left on the packet) imply, it's almost certainly some sort of Halloween special, an occasion also celebrated this year by Cadbury Frightening Fingers, Trick or Treat Mini Rolls, and Mr Kipling's "slime green, horrible orange and blood red" Ghoulish Tarts. Meanwhile, in the USA, when not providing head-to-head comparisons of indoor and outdoor S'mores-making solutions, peanut allergy sufferers will have a better chance of guessing what's in their "Trick or Treat" bags thanks to Shrek Glow-In-The-Dark Wrappers Twix and Snickers bars (both pages take a while to load due to all the pictures, second one also features a disturbingly waxy-looking "orange-colored" Halloween Kit Kat).

Comment: Oh no...I was just recovering from the shock of the lime one, this is just too much. Can we expect every-flavour Kit Kats in the future?

Comment: this is ridiculous. can kit-kat have its own section, snackspot?

i am pleased that the number of halloween variants is increasing though. seasonality in snacking is a good thing.

Comment: Iceland / Littlewoods foodhalls right now have a whole shelf of Halloween related special products, including big bags full of the minibar variant of blood orange Kit Kats. You get about 18 little 2 finger blood orange Kit Kats for your £2.25. Can't taste the blood, but they are very orangey.

Iceland also have on their Halloween shelf the new ghost shaped cheesy Quavers, and the 'Turn-Your-Tongue-Blue' pickled onion Monster Munch convieniently packed in the same multipack. Having sampled the Monster Munch, my tongue went a bright 'Manchester City' shade of blue. Much more succesfully than the previous times Walkers have tried this same crispy trick, with last years might-be-blue, might-be-green-it's-a-mystery Monster Munch and this years pathetically ineffective turn-your-tongue-yellow Skips.

And talking of Skips - look out for the new limited edition spooky spice flavour also in multipacks on the Iceland Halloween shelf, in lime green packaging. They also had special 'Spooky Smarties' there too. These just seemed to be mini boxes filled with only the purple and orange Smarties.

Comment: The blood orange is the best of the bunch, my opinion. A stronger orange flavour and good attention to detail. The ultimate Kit Kat would be the Caramac Kit Kat, but they seem frightened to go there, for some reason.

Comment: A Caramac Kit Kat would be tame compared to some of the things they have come out with. It would be like giving us a Carol Vorderman in place of Judy Finnigan as the "Luscious" Lime. They expected us to eat that?! (no offence)

Comment: KitKat Blood Orange is very nice. Like an Orange KitKat, but slightly zingier. I wish I saw the Luscious Lime version in the Woolworths where I live because I would like to try it. Unfortunately they're not sold there. I hope to see the Christmas Pudding one too because that too sounds nice (and different).
