Kit Kat’s New Limited-Edition Lemon Crisp Flavor Is A Taste Of Summertime

The candy lords over at Hershey’s surely know to play with our hearts and taste buds. There’s a new Kit Kat Lemon Crisp bar in town, and it has got us looking forward to summer. And yes, it’s not even part of the lineup that the brand teased us with at the end of 2019. Well played, Kit Kat, well played. What a great way to kick off the year!

Certified junk food sleuth @candyhunting was among the first who posted the photo of the new chocolate variant, courtesy of another Instagram user @brickt13. As per the packaging, the new crisp wafers come in “lemon-flavored white crème.”



Moving on, various Instagram users have already spotted the new treat at Food Lion. According to another user, @mnmtwinz, the new variant will be around until the Spring and Easter seasons. Each bag contains individually wrapped Miniature Kit Kat wafers which will come in either 7.5 or 9-ounce pack variant.

? Yesterday, we were among the first group of social media influencers to visit @Hersheys’ Technical Center and peek behind the proverbial curtain to see how some Kit Kat magic happens! Check out our Kit Kat story highlight if you’re interested. We also got a first taste at some upcoming flavors that you’ll learn about next month. Finally, we received some gifts to take home. Among them are new Kit Kat Lemon Crisp! Here for the Spring and Easter season, these will be available nationwide for a limited time only in 7.5 and 9 oz bags. Although we haven’t found these in NYC just yet, they have been spotted at Food Lion. • ? When it comes to snacking, we enjoy lemon but it certainly isn’t our first choice. But these taste incredible!! In fact, we enjoy these more than many previous Kit Kat releases such as Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Cinnamon and Raspberry Créme which are all solid flavors as well. While in the lab, we tried varying samples of the lemon white créme that they produced before nailing the flavor that went into the final product and we must say, they made a fantastic choice. So excited for you all to see what else Kit Kat has in store soon! Thank you again, @KitKat_US @HersheyCompany @KayleerDugan @AhhnaLin ???

Unfortunately, that’s about everything we know so far. Nonetheless, everyone who has tried it seems to be loving the citrusy white crème mix. User @never.lackin.on.snackin noted that
“the lemon flavor is clearly there but not sour or bitter like an actual lemon.”

KITKAT LOVERS REJOICE!!! . Before we became snack reviewers, we were unaware of how many different variations and flavors of KitKats that they have all around the world. Now we get intrigued when finding different variations. . Lemon Crisp KitKat will hit shelves in stores this Spring but for now you can find them at Food Lion. . ?We love the yellow and blue colors on the packaging. Makes it really feel spring-like. The KitKats smell like a sweet lemon (if that's possible). The white lemon creme is light and sweet. The lemon flavor is clearly there but not sour or bitter like an actual lemon. They are actually pretty refreshing. Perfect Bite! . Thank you to my friend @foodiewiththebeasts for sending these to us. If there's a snack you can't find, she is the one to hit up. She wil l hook you up. . How do you feel about these?

Meanwhile, one staff of the food review blog The Impulsive Buy has also spotted the treat in Fry’s. Here’s the verdict: “As far as my mouth is concerned, it’s basically lemon-flavored white chocolate.”

We don’t know about you, but we’re really curious how this sweet-sour tandem turns out on a wafer bar! And if you’re part of the #teamlemon squad, then you certainly wouldn’t want to miss out on these Kit Kat Lemon Crisp bars.




To be honest, it’s a quite different approach versus other Kit Kat flavors. If you’re going to ask us, we’d bet that it would make it to Japan’s list of strangest flavors. Well, it turns out that there’s a salt and lemon variant in Japan under Nestle. Plus, there’s also a lemon drizzle Kit Kat variant that has made its way to the UK shores. So, it’s safe to assume that it’s not an entirely new concept at all.

Better start hunting for these bright yellow bags before other Kit Kat variants start invading your local grocery stores! Take note, there’s four more coming our way!
