Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Christmas/ Burton's Maryland Big and Chunky Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Christmas/ Burton's Maryland Big and Chunky
Posted: 11:37 Sat 11-Sep-2010. Price: (Maryland) 1/200g. Location: Morrisons, Anniesland, Glasgow; Morrisons, Byker. Sub-flavours: (Maryland) Double Chocolate; White Choc Brownie. Nutritional unusualness: (Maryland) "Yumminess just got chunkier".
This first one is also officially known as Kit Kat Claus (to be accompanied by a Milkybar Polar Bear) - it looks like it's a Father Christmas version of the Kit Kat Easter Bunny, though all "Lucy" could comment was: "It's started already! Christmas is coming! God..." Which leaves it to "Greg Lowe" to back up my surprising conclusion (from around 19:30 in this free podcast) that the Big and Chunky Marylands are more than a match for Cadbury's ones - or, as "Greg" puts it: "Very nice large cookies that are neither chewy or crisp, but part-way between the two. They contain large chunks of chocolate and are very moreish."

...In other terms you maybe shouldn't type into Google images without SafeSearch turned on: Whoopie Pies are currently 1.25/4 in Tesco if you'd like to see how they compare with Marks and Spencer's similar bandwagon-jumping; and the Aero Double Chocolate Swirl has been much improved upon by the Aero Swirlie, which were on introductory offer in Morrisons Camden for 1/4. Or, back with Kit Kats, Nestle are replacing the current Hazelnut Senses with a Caramel Cream version, no doubt targeting that same female market as "smooth vanilla mousse centre covered in creamy milk chocolate" bar Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss, due in shops from this time next month.

Comment: I remember when Nestle made some interesting flavoured Kit Kats such as the fruit varieties and the caramel ones. Now we have the menopause version (Senses) and the many faced little slabs of chocolate wafer such as above. I tried a Kit Kat cinnamon from Canada. It was brilliant. Nestle told me that it wouldn't be popular in the UK. Tossers.

Comment: I was in the Birmingham branch of Cybercandy last Wednesday, chatting to the helpful staff and they said it's the Japanese who really go bonkers with Kit Kat flavours. Baked Potato flavour Kit Kat anybody? Ginger Ale? Soya Bean? Well at least Cookies & Cream flavour didn't give me the heebie jeebies.
