This fall, our taste buds were blessed with Pumpkin Pie Kit Kats. (Our verdict: They taste so much like the real thing! We love them.) And right before the most wonderful time of the year, the candy aisle will have another festive tenant: Sweet Cinnamon Kit Kats.
What do Sweet Cinnamon Kit Kats taste like?
According to the packaging, the newest breakable miniature chocolate bars are “crisp wafers in sweet cinnamon-flavored milk chocolate.” In other words, the cinnamon delivers a subtle flavor boost.
Cinnamon adds a hint of spicy sweetness to anything it touches. Along with peppermint, it’s a quintessential flavor and scent of the winter holidays. (Think fragrant candles, Christmas morning sweet rolls, snickerdoodle cookies and gingerbread men.)
But have no fear—these Kit Kats don’t have an overwhelming cinnamon bite, and chocolate is certainly still the prominent note. Hershey’s got it just right and simply took ’em up a notch for the season. In fact, they taste a lot like a rich, gooey cinnamon bun. (There’s even a cinnamon bun on the packaging!)
When (and where) will Sweet Cinnamon Kit Kats be available?
The latest Kit Kat family member can be seen on all major retailer shelves this November. The miniature bars will be sold in 9-oz. bags at a suggested retail price of $3.49. They’re individually wrapped in packaging that makes the bars resemble elves, green suits and all.
The Sweet Cinnamon Kit Kats will be available for a limited time, so don’t wait until the last minute to get them…same goes for those Christmas presents.
If you just can’t wait, try making one of these sweet, sugary cinnamon desserts.
