REVIEW: Lotus Biscoff KitKat Minis (United Arab Emirates)

Lotus Biscoff KitKat Minis

What are Lotus Biscoff KitKat Minis?

Some absolute genius has combined KitKats (those wafer/chocolate bars you’re probably supposed to eat one stick at a time, but I take a giant bite out of all four sticks at once because I’m an animal) and Biscoff Spread (that amazing butter made from cookies, which I eat with a spoon, not my fingers because I’m an animal with manners).

Is there a snack foods innovation category for the Nobel Prize? There should be. And whoever dreamed this up should win. It’s so obvious – KitKats and Biscoff – but here it is 2020 and it’s only just born into the world.

Right now, Biscoff KitKats are available in the United Arab Emirates and some outlets in the U.K. They come in “Mini Moments” format (half of a chunky KitKat).

How are they?

I was sure I’d love these, but there’s always a chance that when you put something on a high pedestal, it can’t live up. These lived up.

The chunky shape allowed for a nice slab of Biscoff above the wafer cookies. The texture of the Biscoff was a little thinner than the usual spread – you can usually get a bit of caramel-like “pull” from Biscoff in a jar. But that didn’t bother me at all. I didn’t notice the crunchiness mentioned on the wrapped, but again – didn’t care. The flavor was spot-on Biscoff – gingery, buttery, brown sugary. Delicious.

Anything else you need to know?

It’s an absolute tragedy that these aren’t stateside yet. If you want to try them, you’ll have to track them down online.

Conclusion:

These were terrible. Categorically the worst. If you see them in stores here in the U.S., just walk away. If you see me at the store, loading them into a cart by the boxload, it’s because I’m going to burn them in a barrel behind my house. No, that’s NOT a Biscoff KitKat in my mouth. Stop asking questions.

  1. who can we lobby to get these carried by every Walmart and Kroger and Publix within 100 miles from my house? I will not sleep tonight because of drool!

  2. Ah, don’t worry. The chances of these coming to the US (short of being imported as a specialty food item) is slightly less than the chances of someone buying the Hershey company even if it means giving up the most popular candy bar. And by that I mean check the brand name on that package. Nestle owns the Kit Kat candy bar, but licensed it to Hershey in the US (and maybe Canada?), with a troublesome little clause that kicks in if the Hershey company is ever sold, and causes the Kit Kat fights to revert back to Nestle. At least one potential buyer for the Hershey company has backed out upon learning that they’d be losing what is hands down the most popular candy bar in the US.

    So, unless that happens, Hershey is unlikely to voluntarily give up a cash cow like that, and any Nestle Kit Kat promotions are destined to skip the US.

    1. 100%. Your best bet is to hope some foreign specialty stores carry them in the US (such as World Market). Otherwise, you’re stuck overpaying to import any of the specialty Kit-Kat flavors. Hershey doesn’t really branch out with the stuff Nestle does.
