Kit Kat Noir. A name that didn't grab me at first. In my search for crazy green tea type flavours, a plain dark chocolate Kit Kat wasn't so exciting. But of course in the pursuit of research I bought a packet.
This is from the Kit Kat "Chocolatier" range, which I think is a type of boutique or gourmet range. They come in a fancy box and, most obviously, are about 1/8 the size of a normal Kit Kat. These are like the After Dinner Mint of Kit Kats. One tiny mouthful, one tiny taste to tickle your tastebuds.
You might be able to see in the shot below a photo of a man in a chef's hat on the back of the box. Made by Patissierie Takagi. Cos yeah, I'm so sure that Mr Takagi personally oversaw these little mass-produced Kit Kats. I even doubt that he created them. I mean, really!
So, the rating. Well, I have to say that I think these are my favourite of all I tried. This is proper bittersweet dark chocolate, dusted with real cocoa powder on the top. These are Kit Kats for the chocolate conoisseur. Not sweet, good quality chocolate flavour. Excellent!
My score: 9 out of 10
