Nestlé KitKat Milk Chocolate (Australian Import)
If you're counting your sugar intakes, but can't help your chocolate craving, this Australian-imported bar may be a perfect example of what you're looking for. The nutritional facts should come into play when comparing with health information found in American-made products.
This is a special food review because it marks as the first international product ever tasted, eaten and reviewed here on FOODSOTROS! It may be just another commonly branded KitKat, but this comes from the land down under: Australia.
What I didn't expect was the taste because (apparently), food product standards are different in other countries compared to here in the United States. You know how the McDonald's in Japan has a menu serving healthy food, as opposed to the McDonald's food here in the US which serves food that doesn't decompose in your body? "Different strokes, different folks," as the saying goes. Apply those variables to this equation and you'll see what I mean.
Saying that, this KitKat bar tastes less sweet than the ones marketed here in the US. In other words, you won't get a toothache eating these. Because of that, I was able to taste the fresh cocoa that were grown, picked and made this chocolate-related product possible. The wafers are just as good, nothing different there. Posssibly the biggest selling point is how large this bar is, having the bar's rows and columns pre-cut for easier breaking. Depending on your sugar intakes, I'll bet you won't finish this in one sitting (for someone with a huge appetite like myself, I barely could eat half of it). Nevertheless, being that the sugar content is rather low, it's fine to eat how ever much you can.
If you're a huge fan of KitKat but feel restrained because of the high sugar content, try importing these ones from Australia. Who knows, it may lead into becoming the perfect vacation spot for your next annual escape. As a matter of fact, if majority of international chocolate bars have low amounts of sugar compared to the ones sold here in the US, I think it's time we make importing chocolate/candy from other countries a trendy thing.
Let's face it: Other countries are easy with their ingredients, such as grams of salt and sugar, while those same contents are served in hoards here in the US. Are we missing something here? I doubt the FDA is doing something about it. Eat too much of a particular ingredient, then you get sick, thus infecting your system, where you end up going to the hospital receiving a bill having to pay thousands of dollars just to feel better. It's time to wake up, fellow Americans. Spread the word.
Highly recommended! And I mean, recommended importing this from Australia.
(Special thanks to Renia Sarkisordoukhanian for bringing this product in consideration for review!)
- Chocolate taste contains less sugar compared to the American products. A famous treat that won't make you feel bloated during/after eating.
- American product has higher calories and sugar. Costs of importing this lower-sugar version may be a factor.
