REVIEW: Witch’s Brew Kit Kat

What is Witch’s Brew Kit Kat?

Hershey’s has turned witch’s brew into its latest Kit Kat flavor. What does witch’s brew taste like? Well, it aligns perfectly with Halloween, witches, and the color green: marshmallow!

Wait…marshmallow??

How is it?

As with the other limited edition Kit Kats, the flavor lies in the light-green-colored crème coating. The inside is standard Kit Kat fare.

Does Witch’s Brew taste different from standard Kit Kats with white crème? Yes!
Does it taste like a marshmallow? I guess so. It’s sweeter than white crème, but marshmallows are not known for their strong flavor.

Is it enjoyable? Yes!

Anything else you need to know?

Though the flavor has a dubious connection to our beloved October holiday, I adore the witch on the package! There was an old episode of Bewitched where Samantha and her aunts were furious that Darrin’s client wanted an ugly crone on his Halloween candy packaging.

This Kit Kat witch might be green and warty, but she’s so adorable that Samantha would hopefully approve. Well done, Hershey’s design team!

Conclusion:

Marshmallow seems like a lazy and forgettable flavor for witch’s brew. I mean, is that really what you get when you mix the eye of newt and toe of frog? But even though trick-or-treaters might forget this Kit Kat once they have finished their Halloween haul, at least they’ll enjoy it while it’s around.

  1. That Bewitched episode was actually hilarious because Derwood’s errr uh Darren’s boss Larry was the one who sent over the scary pointy hat witch party favors and Darren was enraged and said Larry was racist etc. Larry of course couldn’t understand any of this making it all the more comical. And I do indeed think Samantha and Endora would approve this friendlier looking less stereotypical witch 🙂
    I’ll be looking for these! Along with the Vampire Kisses!

    1. Oh yes, that was the second-season episode “Trick or Treat” (one of my favorites), which was thematically similar to the first-season episode I mentioned. (I have wasted way too much time watching TV!)

      I was disappointed that my Dollar General didn’t have the Vampire Kisses (yet)—I’m excited for those. Thanks for reading!

  2. Kit-Kat filling is made of ground-up Kit-Kat bars (most likely they just combine the ingredients, but they do recycle broken or malformed Kit-Kat bars into the filling). If the filling matches the color of the outer coating (which it appears to), it should indicate that they ground up Witch’s Brew Kit-Kats to produce the filling.
