Nestlé reveals latest limited edition KitKat Chunky range for its flagship brand

Nestlé has unveiled the latest limited edition variant of its key KitKat Chunky series in the form of a smooth caramel version, adding to the company flagship brand’s portfolio, making an its retail appearance this month, reports Neill Barston.

The limited edition KitKat Chunky Caramel 43.5g bar will be available from supermarkets and convenience stores across the UK, and extends the popular line that first made its debut back in 1999.

Over the years, there have been some notable flavours including Salted Caramel Popcorn, Peanut Butter, Cookie Dough, Coconut, Chocolate Fudge and New York Cheesecake.

Callum Smith, Assistant Brand Manager for KitKat said: “A new KitKat Chunky is always one of the year’s most anticipated confectionery launches, and we think fans will be delighted with our latest innovation.

“Caramel is officially the nation’s number one flavour, and we’ve taken it to the next level by combining a delicious layer of runny caramel with our crisp KitKat wafer to create a taste sensation. When we trialled the newest Chunky flavour at Nestlé House we got a rapturous response, so we can’t wait to hear what everybody thinks!”

Like the rest of the KitKat range, Chunky is made with 100% certified sustainable cocoa. More widely, the KitKat brand is striving to become carbon neutral by 2025; and Nestlé Confectionery UK & Ireland is aiming to halve the carbon footprint of its local fresh milk supply by 2026.

This involves helping farmers to adopt sustainable farming practices that will help protect and restore natural resources such as soil, water and biodiversity around their farms over the years to come, while continuing to produce the best quality milk for Nestlé products.
