Kit Kat Blackcurrant
See others in the Funny Japanese Kit Kat Series here: Strawberry, Caffe Latte, Noir.
Well, from the sublime to the ridiculous. From gourmet petite dark chocolate to something that just should not exist. This is a blackcurrant Kit Kat. Yes, it even sounds wrong, doesn't it? I mean, blackcurrant equals Ribena, right? Ribena should not be mixed with chocolate. No, no, no.
Apologies for the slightly melted example above, but they had survived a trip to and from Ballarat in my boot, to be sampled by some very excitied friends, whose reactions went something like this:
"Oh wow! Cool, funny flavoured Kit Kat from Japan! Yeah, I'll try one"
"Oh yuck. This smells like a toilet!"
"Yeah, toilet flavoured Kit Kats!"
"Ummmm...These are revolting."
Yes, I have to agree. These are not great. They taste just like the smell of that cheap-arse bright pink bubble gum that comes in a 20metre coil. When I gave my friend his sample last week, I didn't tell him before hand what he'd be trying. He would close his eyes and smell each one to try and guess the flavour before tasting it. His immediate reaction was:
"This smells like something that shouldn't be mixed with chocolate"
Of course, that hasn't really stopped me snacking on them. This was the only flavour that came sold in a big fat sack, so I had about 20 of the things to get through. But when you're desperate.......
My score: 2 out of 10 (2 for the sheer fact that I evidently thought them not so awful to only eat one...)
His score: 1 out of 10 (probably more accurate)
