'Tis the season for pumpkin and other fall flavors. Around here that means lots of pumpkin with Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin roll, etc. I even tried pumpkin frozen yogurt the other day which tasted absolutely nothing like pumpkin. The high school kid student behind the cash register said it tasted like "old vanilla coke." I told her she probably wanted to work on her sales pitch but she was essentially right. It didn't taste like pumpkin - kind of like the latest seasonal Kit Kat. I'm sorry to break your autumn loving hearts but the Pumpkin Cheesecake Kit Kat tastes nothing like pumpkin.
The Pumpkin Cheesecake Kit Kat has 68 calories and is made with yellow tinted white chocolate. It smells slightly of cheese, which after my encounter with the so disgusting I could hardly swallow it Cheese Kit Kat, had me a little worried. It tastes much better than the Cheese Kit Kat but the emphasis is on the Cheesecake part of Pumpkin Cheesecake and less on the Pumpkin. There was just a hint of spice in the creme that reminded me of pumpkin pie although it was too subtle for me to pinpoint what it was. I'm going to guess ginger.
Overall it was very blah. It reminded me of the Blueberry Cheesecake Kit Kat. That one too was more cheesecake than blueberry and not the better for it. Personally I think if Nestle wants to cash in on fall flavors they should go with Apple Cinnamon Cider Kit Kat.
What are your favorite fall flavors?
