Tiramisu Kit Kat

I'm not a huge fan of Italian food (or what Americans like to think of as Italian food at any rate.) But I do like Italian desserts, including tiramisu, which is why even though I tried this a few years ago I went ahead and bought the Tiramisu Kit Kat mini when I had the chance. I was a little afraid that it was going to be a repackaged version of the Cafe Au Lait or Milk Coffee but I was pleasantly surprised. The Tiramisu Kit Kat actually tastes a lot like tiramisu. Hats off to you Nestle!


The Tiramisu Kit Kat has 69 calories and is made with white chocolate. It smells like coffee and it tastes like it too. But the coffee isn't overpowering, just as isn't in a good tiramisu. The bitterness of the coffee balances very nicely with the sweetness of the white chocolate. There are hints of vanilla and cinnamon in the mix as well. The only thing lacking is that it's impossible in a Kit Kat to capture the texture of tiramisu, which is really just as important as the flavor in my opinion. That aside I will say that this is a fantastic tasting Kit Kat. I would definitely try this one again and encourage you to pick them up if you can still find them.

How about you? Do you like tiramisu?

Final Score: 9

  2. I've been trying to figure out if certain Kit Kats from Japan have nuts or seafood in them. I just got home from Japan and brought them to my son who is allergic to both nuts and seafood. Would you be able to tell me if the Strawberry Cheesecake KitKats (Yokohama Edition) and the Green Tea KitKats from Japan have nuts or seafood in them? The "in a facility that also processes nut products" is okay, but on shared equipment or in the prodcut is not. The Nestle US customer relations was not able to help me. Thank you, Mike M. {I will check back if you can please post an answer, or a suggestion; I've also emailed the Japan Nestle office} Thank you very much.

    I tried contacting the Nestle Company in America and they didn't have any answers for me.

  3. When I tried these back in July I thought they had a bit of an off flavor to them. Not as good as the Tiramisu big Kat bar I had from England. I didn't mind the custard pudding flavor that came in the same bag though.

  4. Okay, I need to revise my opinion after trying another one. I think my palate was off the first time, because it was much better. Maybe it's because I started drinking coffee. :)

  5. Any idea where I can get my hands on these online? I have found a number of Japanese sites, but I clearly don't speak Japanese and have no idea what I'm buying.

  7. This sounds so good! My Dad loves kit kats to death and I try to get him a different flavor every year for Christmas and birthdays. World Market works pretty well for this. But it's difficult to get kitkat flavors outside of the country unless you actually travel there or know thier language. Thanks for the suggestions of the NapaJapan page. I agree the Nestle Company here in America was no help for me also
