Ready to break into a new Kit Kat candy flavor? Kit Kat Blueberry Muffin is the latest specialty flavor to hit store shelves. While there might not be a tempting aroma wafting from the oven, this blueberry muffin inspired treat is one that will have people unwrapping a package to make the most of that break anytime of day.

The classic Kit Kat has delighted candy fans over the years. The combination of crisp wafers covered in chocolate satisfies the sweet and slightly crunchy cravings.

While the classic candy is always a tasty choice, Kit Kat has been evolving its options over the years. From the Duos line, like Strawberry and Dark Chocolate, that celebrate two flavors coming together to seasonal offerings like Lemon Crisp to special limited time offerings, like Fruity Cereal, the classic candy is never afraid to push the flavor conversation forward. In some ways, that creamy and crunchy candy can meld into a variety of flavors.

The newest limited edition flavor, Kit Kat Blueberry Muffin, takes inspiration from the classic bakery treat. Choosing to pick a flavor that is familiar to many people seems to be intentional for the brand.

As Dan Williard, Brand Manager of KIT KAT said, “Our product creators have such passion for deciding which flavor KIT KAT should take on next and making sure it delivers for our fans. KIT KAT Blueberry Muffin has already become one of our favorites; it has all the taste of a freshly baked blueberry muffin, but no baking required!”

Recently, Kit Kat sent some of the new Blueberry Kit Kat candies for FoodSided to try. From the moment that the wrapper is opened, the aroma of a blueberry muffin is apparent. That combination of comforting yet fresh fruit juiciness is clear. The first whiff is clearly blueberry.

While the color is more lavendar-ish than dark blueberry, it is reminiscent of a blueberries and cream combination. From the aroma to color, the anticipation grows for that first bite.

The flavor is sweet, but not overly so. Similar to a blueberry muffin, it has that perfect balance. The creaminess of the chocolate contrasts the crunchy wafer. Although there is a desire to savor the moment, it is too easy to devour quickly.

Although Kit Kat describes the graham cracker pieces folded into the mix, that extra crunch is not overly apparent. It is more like a buttery flavor note that you know is there but easily mixes into whole eating experience.

Truthfully, if someone could take the blueberry cream that enrobes the crispy wafer and put that on a freshly baked blueberry muffin, everyone would cheer. This candy is really about that blueberry cream.

The new Kit Kat Blueberry Muffin flavor will be available for a limited time, while supplies last. It will be sold as 1.5 oz. standard bar, 3 oz. king bar, and 0.49 oz. snack size. The king bar is perfect for sharing.
