KitKat Has New Native Australian Flavours

Have a break.

KitKat has come out with two divine new flavours, that celebrate native Australian flavours.

As of today, KitKat comes in Dark Tasmanian Mint and Dark Southern Australian Orange. 

Not only are they celebrating distinct ingredients from Australian regions that are famed for their local produce, but the new KitKat blocks are also really beautiful to look at, with the swirls of flavour looking aesthetically indulgent.

Both of the new flavours feature a rich dark chocolate.

KitKat Dark Tasmanian Mint boasts a refreshing mint choc using oil from the mint plant, grown in the stunning state of Tasmania. 

KitKat Dark Southern Australian Orange features orange choc using oil from blood oranges grown in the lush South Australian Riverland and Sunraysia region.

“Dark chocolate is synonymous with moments of everyday indulgence, and as Aussies increasingly spend more time at home, we’re seeing that they want to elevate their evenings with moments of decadence.” said Nestlé Head of Marketing Confectionery Joyce Tan.

“We’re excited to take KitKat and dark chocolate lovers on a journey of discovery, exploring the provenance of Tasmania and Southern Australia with these new flavour pairings.

 “Using quality ingredients from our own backyard, the new flavours add intrigue to our well-loved dark chocolate range as an indulgent and stimulating chocolate treat.”

KitKat Dark Tasmanian Mint and KitKat Dark Southern Australian Orange are now available in 170g blocks from all major supermarkets for RRP $5.00.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
