This is one of the great things about being the Candy Critic. Eating something that you know a little bit about, but they throw a curve, decorate it strangely, and exclude anything in English, it's times like this that I smile just a little. See I know Kit Kat; in fact I really like Kit Kat. I like the bar itself, I like that they're willing to try things even though I think they do it just for the sake of being strange. Sure I wish Nestle would take that Kit Kat creativity and maybe invest money in inventing and supporting some new treats that I can't even imagine, but I take what I can get.

So as far as I can tell by taste and the packaging this is some kind of plum soda type flavour. The flavour is really smooth, a lot smoother than I would have expected. It has a bit of a tart taste as well but it creeps up on you so it's not shocking. It's like a nice tea with just enough milk to cut out the harshness. It's a little fruity but not so strong that it knocks you over. I really like this bar. I can't really make out any "Plum" or "Soda" flavour but that would be hard for me since I don't think I've ever tried a plum soda in my life.

I'm very surprised that a green Kit Kat could appeal to me so much.
