I’ve got (another) confession to make (click here to listen to the Foo Fighters song that is now stuck in your head.) – I don’t like apple pie. Apparently that probably makes me unAmerican, but I just don’t. In theory, I should like apple pie. I like apple (sauce and juice), I like cinnamon, and I like a good flaky crust, and even being lactose intolerant I like a big heaping scoop of ice cream on a piece of pie, but I just cannot get into it.
As Nick said in his Trader Joe’s Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie review white chocolate really isn’t my jam. I feel like this review is just me telling you what I don’t like. I grabbed this with the pure intention of taking one bite and tossing the whole thing in the garbage. I feel like white chocolate has such a distinct sweet taste that is so overpowering in every instance its used. Don’t get me wrong, I REALLY like sweet, but unless its combined with peanut butter in a Reese’s ghost or pumpkin? I will pass.
This Kit Kat really surprised me. The balance of the sweetness from the white chocolate, with the crisp apple taste, and the warm cinnamon flavor actually really complimented each other. The apple flavor was subtle but very much present, the wafer part offered the buttery flaky flavor you would expect in a pie, and the cinnamon and white chocolate offer the right amount of spice and sweetness to tie it all together. Overall I was quite impressed. I saw these at the checkout lanes the other day when I went to the store to grab a few things and contemplated buying another one, but peanut M & M’s made the cut.
