Chocolate is like a soul mate. Always there for you, whether the times are good or bad and are always within arms reach. It's the gift that keeps on giving and something you'll never be disappointed in seeing. However, sometimes things don't go right for our beloved chocolate, and these are the tragedies (if you can bare to see).
The Donut Disaster

First of all, why haven't bakeries made a solution to this disaster? Secondly, whoever placed the donut in the bag was rather inconsiderate of the topping and are making people lick bags of chocolate in public. There's no shame in it, you bought that chocolate donut, not plain.

So, if you eat a KitKat like this then you're obviously a monster and need to watch that video where Kourtney Kardashian teaches you the skill. I don't care how hungry you are or how short your break is, you eat it stick by stick. This is making us all extremely anxious so we're going to comfort eat some Gookie Dough.
Chocolate 'Sponge' Cake

Okay, so who's cruel idea was this. It's making our hearts bleed and is definitely tragic. This cake would have looked delicious from the outside and the pain strikes when we realise this individual has wasted the best food in the world (apart from Gookie Dough, obvs) and the only option is to either lick a sponge or throw it all away. Spongebob would be disappointed or in his element. Poor Patrick star.
Taken For A Mug

This guy was certainly taken for a mug and had a rather loud 'bang' in the microwave. After sharing our recipes on mug cakes, we certainly haven't had a disaster as bad as this one. Would we waste this amount of chocolate? NO! Nice decorative touch with the mint leaf, but I'm guessing the flavour wasn't infused as it went everywhere other than the mug. Whoops!
Have you had any chocolate disasters? Whether this be sitting on a chocolate bar and it melting in your pocket or dropping your favourite piece on the floor (that once happened to me over a Reese's Cup in Leeds and I made a scene in the shopping centre!). Let us know in the comments below!
Japan is pretty serious when it comes to the Kit Kat and who's to blame them? The delightful snack is perfect when dunked into a mug of tea or to tantalise your taste buds on your lunch break. Our flavours only extend as far as cookies and cream, mocha, dark, mint, orange and New York Cheesecake as a limited edition gem. So why don't we enter the world of Kit Kat professionals and find out the true flavours that we need to try!
Probably the least weird flavours of the bunch. Fruits and chocolate are pals when it comes to the combination of foods. Strawberry is one of the most popular fruits in Japan, so there's no surprise that it's also a Kit Kat bar. The pastel pink snack tastes like those strawberry and white chocolate lollies that you had as a kid, definitely memorable! However, next comes Citrus Golden Blend. To me, it sounds like washing up liquid or one of those sweets that are always left in the tin because no one likes them. The flavour is described to start off quite lemon-like until a sharp citrus shooting burst of flavour hits your tongue and tastes like that bitter-sweet gum. Lastly, is the pear. Now, pear and chocolate are pals when it comes to desserts (well the real products, anyway), but how would they taste in a chocolate bar? The pear flavour seems to be more artificial than natural so tastes very concentrated, almost like a sour jelly bean that has never been near the actual fruit in its lifetime. I think I'll stick with my usual Kit Kat, thanks!
NOOOO! How dare you ruin chocolate! Japan is way too adventurous compared to us Brits. three words, purple sweet potato. Yes, it's a flavour, but sweet potato belongs on my plate for dinner, not as my lunchtime chocolate snack? However, the next one is a worldwide sensation. Chili and chocolate. This combination is one for the daring who like a mild burn but bittersweetness. Just make sure you have a glass of water (or milk!) handy when you bite into this one.
So we've tried New York Cheesecake and even had a period of cookie dough goodness (hmm, maybe we should try a red velvet Gookie Dough Kit Kat?! Collaboration, please!) but here are the extra twists that you wished you could get your hands on within the UK. First up, is a cinnamon cookie Kit Kat. Cinnamon is perfect during this festive season and is in every dessert, covered in white chocolate with a hint of Christmas spice, this is warm and comforting. Strawberry cheesecake is no surprise seeing as we've already discussed the love for the fruit. Perhaps a little too similar but without the gritty fruit texture, this one can't fool the tastebuds! Next is brown sugar syrup. Now, this sounds as diabetic as it most likely is. Extra sugar, meets chocolate. Delightful.
Other flavours include baked potato, soy sauce, fruit parfait, red bean paste, salt watermelon, chocolate and grilled potato (what?), apple vinegar, sports drink, kiwi and cherry blossom. I'll let your minds imagine and somewhat cringe at the thought.
Nestle have captitalised the craze of Kit Kat by making these unique flavours. Which ones would you be trying?
