Kit Kat

Note:  This review was originally posted to my Epinions account.

I’ve been going through the Epinions database finding all of these candy bars that I liked in high school and college. Unfortunately, I can’t find a definitive list of what’s available on Epinions nor is there a specific category that I can go through. However, one of the candies that I found was Kit Kat.

Kit Kat is a basic enough candy bar. It’s one bar that has four wafers and is covered by chocolate. You can break off each of the chocolate-covered wafers to get four separate bars. Each bar has Kit Kat written on it, making it obvious what it is.

When it came time to make a choice from a vending machine, it was pretty rare that I’d go for a Kit Kat. The primary reason is that they look kind of small compared to other candy bars. Kit Kats are thinner and taste lighter than some other bars, mostly because of the wafers and milk chocolate. These are not things that have a presence like caramel or peanuts. I don’t quite feel like I’m getting my money’s worth if it’s priced the same as a Snickers or a Milky Way.

Another down side is that the chocolate coating melts easy, especially in the hot Miami Summers. This can be a problem if you’re between classes and want something that’s not messy. I remember having to stop in the men’s room a few times before entering class to wash my hands. For some reason, this is the only candy bar to do this.

Kit Kat isn’t so bad overall. If it’s priced a little less than the other bars or on sale, I’ll go for it. Sometimes, you don’t want a huge bar. That’s pretty rare for me, but I did eat them on a few occasions. (Mostly, it was when I was young and went trick-or-treating and was getting them for free anyway.)

In life, there are fates worse than having to eat a Kit Kat unless you happen to be allergic to one of the ingredients. If you happen upon one and can get it cheap or for free, I’d say go for it. Otherwise, you’re not missing anything. The only thing is that, being a candy bar, should not be eaten in bulk. Remember: they make better snacks than breakfasts.
