Gold finger! Nestlé will launch a new Kit Kat coated with caramel and white chocolate in the UK next month – but it will cost 25p more than a regular bar
- A white chocolate and caramel KitKat is launching in the UK next month
- Snack, called KitKat Gold, was launched in Australia in 2018 with huge success
- It launches in Co-op and Nisa stores on February 3 and rolled out to retailers nationwide on March 31
Chocolate lovers will soon be able to get their hands on a new variation of KitKat when it hits UK stores next month.
Nestlé is launching KitKat Gold in the UK next month, a white chocolate and caramel version of its famous snack.
The four-finger chocolate treat will keep its traditional wafer and base made from milk chocolate, but it’s topped with caramel a layer of white chocolate.
A limited edition version of KitKat Gold flew off the shelves when it was launched in Australia in 2018, and UK fans will no doubt be rushing to try the sweet snack.
However, it is likely to set them back 25p more than a regular KitKat, which costs 60p.

It launches on February 3 in Co-Op and Nisa stores and then is rolled out to retailers nationwide on March 31, just in time for people to indulge in chocolate over Easter.
Nestlé says the KitKat’s RRP is 85p, but stores may set different prices.
The bar is slightly more calorific than a regular KitKat, at 219 calories per four-finger bar, which is 10 more than the 209 calories in regular KitKats.
Alex Gonnella, Nestlé’s marketing director, confectionery for the UK and Ireland, said: ‘We’ve had an amazing response to the new KitKat experiences that we’ve introduced over the last few years.

‘I am certain that KitKat Gold is going to be just as big a hit on these shores as it has been down under.’
It comes after Nestle launched a green tea matcha and ruby cocoa KitKats early last year.
They also released a dark chocolate KitKat, exclusively at John Lewis, that was coated with real gold and set customers back £25.
