It frustrates me sometimes when I try what I hope will be something new and exotic from another part of the world, only to be given a classic treat I've had a million times over. I'm not sure why candy companies copy each other, maybe in this case Kit Kat didn't want to sell their bar in Israel. So to let the Israeli people enjoy this kind of snack, another company decided to make a copy cat version of the Kit Kat bar. If this is truly the case, then I guess I can't fault the folks that make this bar, after all Kit Kat's are pretty tasty and everybody should be allowed to eat them.

The problem this leaves me with is how to review this bar. The only thing I can possibly do is compare it to a Kit Kat. The problems is that this bar doesn't exactly hold up completely in quality to the Kit Kat. Don't get me wrong, the chocolate is spectacular, in fact this bar has a much higher quality chocolate than the American Kit Kat. The problem with this bar, in comparison to a Kit Kat, is how it's put together.

I noticed right off the bat that the back portion of this bar was not completely covered in chocolate. There were several holes in this bar exposing some of the wafers. I also noticed that some of the wafers were not cenetered in the bar, thus leaving one side with a much thicker wall of chocolate than the other. This isn't a big deal, but it is a little detail that could be fixed and would have made this bar great. It's not that these problems don't allow me to recommend this bar, but I will tell you that if you have access to a Britsh or Canadian Kit Kat, you'll be better off.
