Kit Kat Chunky Champion

Unless you’ve been living in a detox-fuelled hibernation over the past few weeks, you should be well aware that it is Kit Kat Chunky Champion time. Each year, those crazy Kit Katters release four wild new flavours for the public to sample before one is crowned the winner. Last year, Peanut Butter came out on top, leaving Double Chocolate, White Chocolate and Orange in his dust.

This year, the contenders battling it out for the prestigious title are Mint, Hazelnut, Choco Fudge and Coconut. But like any other nail-biting competition, there can be only one winner and they will be chosen in the grande finale this Saturday January 26. The showdown takes place in Leicester Square at 11am-3pm where there’ll be free samples, people running around dressed up as superheroes and a chance to have your say about who should be the next Chunkster.

However, as this is one of the annual highlights of the Time Out Towers calendar, we have already made up our minds. Yes, we took this competition very seriously. Kit Kats were divided up, comment forms handed out, and each flavour carefully considered. The results were then collated and we can now reveal that the Time Out Kit Kat Chunky of choice is HAZELNUT followed closely by MINT. Our tasters were divided – it seems people either favour mint or nut, but never both. We’ll alert the scientists.

To give you a flavour of the tasting session, here are some comments for each of the contenders…
