Kit Kat Dark - 70% Cocoa

Kit Kat Dark - 70% Cocoa

Note: For some reason I wrote this review a couple of years ago, and then never posted it. But I’m pretty sure this bar is still being sold, so… here you go.

The media have done a pretty good job of convincing people that dark chocolate is good for them – when I bought this bar, the cashier examined it with interest and declared that she wished that she liked dark chocolate, because then she could eat as much as she wanted without feeling guilty. Well… not quite. There are certainly health benefits to eating dark chocolate, but that doesn’t exactly mean that you can eat all that you want without gaining weight. It’s still chocolate, after all.

My cashier would definitely be out of luck with this bar, as the dark chocolate here has a really strong flavour; much more so than your average mainstream dark chocolate bar. If you don’t like the dark stuff, I can pretty much guarantee that you’re not going to like this bar.

The chocolate has a nice snap (literally – you can hear a very pronounced snapping noise when you separate the segments) and seems to be of a reasonably high quality. It’s not the best quality chocolate ever, but for something in a Nestle candy bar, it’s better than you’d expect. Though it’s been a while since I’ve had the standard Kit Kat Dark, I’m fairly certain this has a more robust dark chocolately taste.

It’s quite good, actually, though the chocolate may be a tad too strong; it kind of overpowers the other flavours of the bar. You definitely get some flavour from the wafers, but it’s in the background. I like it, but then I’m a pretty big fan of dark chocolate (so this whole “dark chocolate is health food!” fad has been a big boon for me).

Now here is a medical experiment you would love to volunteer for. Engler’s team divided 21 healthy adults into two groups. One group got a Dove Dark Chocolate bar every day for two weeks. Like other dark chocolate bars with high-cocoa content, this one is loaded with something called epicatechin. Epicatechin is a particularly active member of a group of compounds called plant flavoniods. Flavoniods keep cholesterol from gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots, and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries.’
