Cut me and I’ll bleed chocolate. I am an outright chocolate fan and a self-proclaimed expert with an exquisite taste. No matter how broke I am, I cannot desist from trying out new chocolates. This happens so frequently, that at times I end up only having chocolates for dinner.

This time around, returning from work I took a detour to avoid the usual Delhi- traffic. While passing through a metro station I stopped by a chocolate shop. I doubt if anybody with a sane mind would ignore a chocolate shop. After all, chocolate is a daily essential with nutritional values. You don’t believe me! Check out the nutritional values in the Nestle- Kit-Kat Chunky.

I predict that if there ever is another world war, it will be for oil/ chocolates. Luckily, I am no U.S.A. and the shop was no Iraq.

Coming back to the topic- I learned that nestle had launched a new set of chocolates in India. One of those was- “Kit Kat Chunky”. Unknown to many it is a successful brand of chocolate which has been tested and tried in different parts of the world.

And I must admit it looked promising.

Stopping by the shop, I enquired “how much does it cost?

Not much Sir, just 70/- bucks.” replied the guy.

SEVENTY bucks! The price in itself momentarily sent me to coma. I couldn’t digest the fact that a slim chunk of a bar full of ‘wafers’ would cost me 1/5000th of my monthly salary. Coming out of the momentary shock and presumably the nano-second of coma, I blurted:

Isn’t that a bit costly? Are they selling chocolates or gold bars?” I couldn’t understand what was so special about it. Even my kidneys are not worth this much. Maybe, the chocolate contained a chunk of digestible gold or silver; or maybe it was a Cuban import “probably Cuban bars”; or maybe ache-din wrapped in an MNC cover.

Smiling at the remarks the guy replied “Sir, it’s pretty good. People buy it all the time. I have only received positive reviews.”

Have you tasted it?” I enquired.

No!” came a prompt response.

Then?” I enquired further. “It is public, my friend! Sell them a piece of their own limb under a brand name and they’ll go gaga over it. Sell them weed/ wild grass from their backyard and they’ll swoon over it; hell, tell them that it contains Plutonium 180, and they’ll get orgasm/ high from it”. What, Plutonium is not digestible? Plutonium 180 doesn’t exist? Exactly, my point!

Who knows what ingredients they had used to label such a high price tag for the “Chunky”? I doubt it was entirely brand work at play. Yet, smitten by the wrapping and the presentation, I continued with the purchase.

Unable to resist the temptation:

  • I peeled off the wrapper (yup!);
  • expecting a delicate mixture of fine chocolate (mix of sweetened cocoa) with wafers;
  • hoping for a fine taste

I took a BITE!!! (Rasi yaa- aa- jaa..h.)

Imagining an exquisite taste, just like the way Katrina Kaif had Aam-gasm in the Aamsutra advertisement.

Waiting for the chocolate to melt in, I tasted the chunky wafers and …

“NOTHING !”

“Nothing happened!”

Disastrous

As it turned out that I am no Katrina Kaif, nor was it aamsutra. Just like the name suggested- a piece of “Chunk”. At any given moment of time, it would be a better option to go for “Cadbury Perk” which has a lower price tag.

My suggestion- If you are a mango man /aam aadmi or an I-Phone user, this is exclusively for you. I don’t have that many kidneys to sell and buy a piece of “chunk”. Even if I had, I’d go for an I-phone rather than this. Until and unless Nestle decides to launch its other 200 different flavours of chunk varying from dotted banana to ginger flavour, it will remain a letdown.

Thumbs down from my side for the Nestle Kit-Kat Chunky, except for its nutritional value. Maybe it’s high time that U.S.A. started looking for Chocolates instead of Oil.

Wait, what? Even an I-phone is costlier than my Kidneys?

Nestle, I want my Kidneys back.
