ULTIMATE KIT-KAT BOX; Shinshu Duo, Apples, Hot Pepper and Tokai Red Bean Sandwich



Our journey continues, this week two flavours from Shinshu (a place that technically doesn’t exist) and one from a place I’ve never heard of.

Shinshu Apples


This is one of the flavours in the box I’ve unfortunately reviewed before. Last time I said;

“Real chocolate (hooray) and a really powerful apple odour from the second the packet is opened. Actually a really, really nice apple odour. So apple-ey that it  goes right past apple and settles somewhere near apple flavoured chewing gum i.e. concentrated apple smell. More apple-ey than an apple.

The taste is much less strong than the smell but still pretty strong. The apple kills all the chocolate notes stone dead. The only thing you can taste here is apple. Although the chocolate does come through in the aftertaste.

And all in all it’s pretty good. Not too sweet, nice and rich, plenty complex and definitely apple-ey. Solid.”

Candy Crash Test brought the smaller bars, however these are available in a larger size (200g) in most supermarkets.

Whilst at Yankee Doodle Candy Cart in the Bullring, Birmingham, UK. Extra “Fruit Sensations” gum was discovered and brought. 15 sticks of “Sweet Watermelon” flavoured gum.  Sugar free and artificially flavoured. Before you even unwrap the clear film a strong sweet melon smell comes from within the packaging, as you unwrap the smell of watermelon can easily knock you out. Its that strong!

A Peanut Butter Cup Time

Down in the basement in Hershey, Pennsylvania 1928, one man invented a taste sensation, which is now being enjoyed all around the world. Reese was that man and by using Hershey chocolate in his confectionery, he created the sensation known as the “Peanut Butter Cup,”. The peanut butter cup is one of the most popular candies in America and can be made at home or brought from any food outlet.

Peanut butter cups are molded chocolate candies with a peanut butter filling inside. They comes in a variety of different sizes and variants. Reese’s also takes the basic idea of peanut butter and chocolate and re-creating it into products like Reese’s Pieces and Nutrageous.
