KitKat Has Released the Milo Chocolate Bars of Your Childhood Dreams
Two beloved childhood chocolate treats are combining in one wafer and choc-malt filled bar — in three varieties, too.
August 31, 2022
Maybe it was a breakfast staple, sipped as a chaser after a couple of pieces of toast. Perhaps heading home from school, scooping as many spoonfuls as you could into a tall glass of milk and watching whatever was on Cartoon Network was a dedicated part of your daily routine. Either way, if you grew up in Aotearoa, odds are that Milo played a significant role in your childhood — cold, hot, stirred in, left sitting on top or however else you like.
Milo makes everything better. Still indulging the odd glass, piled high with that delicious choc-malt powder, now you're an adult? Have a soft spot for a warm Milo on a freezing day? You're not alone. Now there's a brand new way to get your Milo fix: via the freshly released Milo KitKats.
Yes, it's a case of one childhood fave joining forces with another — and trust KitKat, the brand known for oh-so-many wild and delightful flavours in Japan (cough drop KitKats, anyone?) to be behind it. The Milo KitKats combine the former's choc-malt goodness, via a fudge in fact, with the latter's wafers and chocolates.
There are three varieties to choose from too: a regular four-finger KitKat filled with Milo and a KitKat Chunky filled with Milo (both retailing at $1.69 each) are both on shelves now. Coming later in September is a big KitKat block also packed with Milo ($3.70). If you can remember the old Milo chocolates that were sold up until the early 2000s — which were basically condensed bars of Milo covered in chocolate — then your tastebuds are probably already watering.
Obviously, you know what to drink with them: a regular ol' Milo, of course, with as much or as little of the good stuff as you prefer.
KitKat's Milo bars are available in-store now retailing at $1.69 per bar, and the Milo blocks will be in-store from September 12, retailing at $3.70 per block.
