Kitkat has just combined two of the best sweet treats on the market – KitKats (obviously) and spreadable Lotus Biscoff to create a brand new £5 Easter egg. And it’s a dream.
The box comes with a regular-sized, regular-tasting Nestlé Chocolate Egg, but it’s the little extra that’s exciting. Down there’s not one, not two, but Three Lotus Biscoff Kitkat Chunkies. It’s a bite to say and a delicious bite to eat.
The Lotus Biscoff KitKat Egg and the Salted Caramel Popcorn Easter Egg are available for purchase from Tesco while supplies last as well as select Budgens, Londis and Premier convenience stores. Note that prices may be different in each store.

I gave the whole box a taste test to see if it lived up to the quality of a Lotus Biscoff and KitKat combo in theory.
KitKat Lotus Biscoff Easter Egg
The good news is that it was amazing. I was a bit disappointed that Nestlé didn’t make the Lotus Biscoff flavored egg, but I got over it quickly because Nestlé eggs are good as is and if they aren’t broken don’t fix them not.
The Kitkat Chunkies were the real test. On first bite, you get the familiar crunch you expect, but with the slightly unconventional caramelized, cinnamon kick of Lotus biscoff.
It is materialized by a thin layer of biscoff spread on top of the biscuit, which means that each bite is guided by the Lotus taste.
KitKat Salted Caramel Popcorn Easter Egg
Nestlé’s new salted caramel popcorn KitKat egg is also launching ahead of Easter, priced at double £10. The egg is much bigger and actually has little bits of salted caramel scattered all over it and the KitKat Chunkies are, you guessed it, salted caramel popcorn.
It’s certainly different from the usual sickly overload of chocolate I associate with Easter – the salty taste of the egg stands out although the salted caramel has a much weaker flavor.
As for the KitKat Chunkies, I would say the same.
The salted caramel popcorn flavor is there but it’s subtle. If you’re looking for a strong aroma this isn’t for you, but if you like a subtle hint of something different you’ll love this.
Interestingly, the flavor is much stronger than the taste – you get a real hit of salted caramel.
Overall, I have no doubt that the two new KitKat editions will be hits for Nestlé, but the KitKat Biscoff egg has quickly become one of my favorite Easter eggs.
