That’s right folks. There’s no need to panic any longer. The Kit Kat Caramac is back and I can’t see any sign of “Limited Edition” on the wrapper! Does that mean they’re here to stay? Only time will tell, but I’ve stocked up on them anyway just in case my new huge Sainsbury’s store starts to ration them to three per customer.
The reason I’m so excited is because the Caramac edition is my all-time favourite Kit Kat variety (although I’m yet to try the Green Tea edition) and it seems like I’m not alone in that opinion. According to Nestlé the “Caramac variant was launched in 2005 and has proved to be our most successful variant to date.”
Anyway, if you’ve read this far you must be pretty interested in Kit Kats and / or my opinion of them, so here’s my Kit Kat chart of the ones I’ve tried (including Chunky and Editions bars):
- Peanut Butter (Canadian)
- White Chocolate
- Seville Orange (Editions)
- Dark Chocolate
- Red Berry (Editions)
- Strawberries & Cream
- Christmas Pudding
(Seriously – I’ve never tasted Christmas Pudding like that in my life – and nor do I wish to do so!!!)
For more crazy Kit Kat flavours – including Hokkaido Yubari Melon and White with Hokkaido Milk – be sure to check out the Kit Kat entry on Wikipedia!
Have a break. Have a Kit Kat Caramac!

NEWS FLASH!!! Last night I tried a Kit Kat Editions Tiramisu. I hate tiramisu but this wasn’t too bad. I can therefore only assume that it didn’t really taste like tiramisu at all. I’d place it generously between Chunky and Mint in the chart above.

FYI – The UK version of the Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter is virtually the same as Canadian Peanut Butter Kit Kat and both are very tasty, but only if you like peanut butter, of course...
P.S There is only one KitKat. If it's not milk chocolate and wafer it's NOT a Kit Kat. Bloody brand identities. If a product can't stand up on it's own merits then why bother?
