Since it’s so new, whether or not the new Chocolate Frosted Donut Kit Kat tastes just like a regular Kit Kat remains to be seen. Hershey’s website doesn’t say what the creme filling is in the original recipe; all the description says is “crisp wafers in milk chocolate.” Even Hershey’s isn’t forthcoming. “While we make and sell Kit Kat bars in the U.S. under a global license from Nestlé, the manufacturing process for Kit Kat is proprietary under this license,” a spokesperson told TODAY Food. Given the reluctance to reveal what the bar’s original creme filling is, customers can be forgiven for making their own guesses.
New and trendy Kit Kat flavors are always popping up, and some, like Wasabi and European Cheese flavors, completely missed the mark. But despite some negative reviews, the company’s innovation has also paid off, giving us unique new additions like Mint + Dark Chocolate, Apple Pie, and Mocha + Milk Chocolate. Unfortunately, we may never get to sample all of the hundreds of flavors available all over the world, but we’ve still got some worthwhile varieties here in the U.S. — only time will tell how Chocolate Frosted Donut will fare.
