Sacks Morasha pupils are writing regular blog posts on a variety of topics. Read previous entries here. This week’s post is by Jonathan Daniel:
I’m not a huge fan of Italian food (or what Americans like to think of as Italian food at any rate). But I do like Italian desserts, including tiramisu, which is why even though I tried this a few years ago, I went ahead and bought the Tiramisu Kit Kat mini when I had the chance. I was a little afraid that it was going to be a repackaged version of the Café Au Lait or Milk Coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Tiramisu Kit Kat actually tastes a lot like tiramisu. Hats off to you Nestle!
The Tiramisu Kit Kat has 69 calories and is made with white chocolate. It smells like coffee and it tastes like it too. But the coffee isn’t overpowering, just as it isn’t in a good tiramisu. The bitterness of the coffee balances very nicely with the sweetness of the white chocolate. There are hints of vanilla and cinnamon in the mix as well. The only thing lacking is that it’s impossible in a Kit Kat to capture the texture of tiramisu, which is really just as important as the flavour in my opinion. That aside, I will say that this is a fantastic tasting Kit Kat. I would definitely try this one again and encourage you to pick them up if you can still find them.
