Did you know that KitKat products aren’t made by Nestlé in America? They’re made by The Hershey Company instead. For a standard milk chocolate based product, I’d be a bit concerned about that – but these Lemon Crisp Miniatures aren’t made with chocolate at all!
Instead, these mini single finger KitKat bars are described as “Crisp wafers in Lemon flavoured White Creme”.
Oh yes folks, it’s a “not a chocolate” chocolate product!
There’s never a better time to squeeze in a break than springtime. So with Easter and spring filling the air, consider filling your baskets, your candy trays, and your pantry with new KIT KAT® Lemon Crisp Miniatures. These delicious, crisp wafers in lemon-flavored white crème are individually wrapped and ready to brighten the season.
I feel like the wafer inside this KitKat isn’t quite as refined as the European and Japanese versions I’m used to eating. It’s almost… a little bulkier, a little more like cheaper cardboardy European wafers. But my perception on that could be because of the coating not behaving in the same way as I’m used to… because it’s not actually chocolate.
You can tell the “white creme” isn’t chocolate as soon as you take a bite. The coating is soft, it’s sugary in a way that chocolate on KitKats doesn’t tend to be. It feels more like a solidified fat and sugar combo and doesn’t have the richly satisfying melt of a white chocolate.
That being said – and I do think this feels like a cheaper product than the Nestlé counterparts – they taste pretty nice. I really like the lemon flavour. It’s light and bright with hints of lemon sherbet about it.
For some reason a portion size here is set as 4 bars. I’m good with 2 in one sitting, any more and the sugar starts being a bit too much. Now I’m quite well aware that I’m not the biggest sugar fiend out there, so your mileage will absolutely vary.
Overall, these Lemon Crisp KitKats are cheap but fun and the lemon flavour is executed really nicely. Not bad!
