-Saima Ahmad bought a $4-multipack and none of the bars had wafer inside
-Law student, 20, wrote to Nestle demanding a lifetime supply of chocolate
-Claims they breached duty of care to customers and threatens legal action
-Writes: ‘If I wanted pure chocolate, I would have bought a bar of Galaxy’
Here’s the statement Ahmad made about her current battle with Nestle:
‘They go about advertising the unique concept of KitKat, but I’m so disappointed by what I have purchased.
‘I’m hoping they will apologize to me and in future focus more on quality of their product.
‘No one else in that industry has that unique concept about mixing the wafer with the chocolate and that’s why I’m a fan.’
‘I have also lost my faith in Nestle.
‘Clearly, if I wanted to purchase a confectionary item that is purely chocolate, I would have purchased a bar of Galaxy.
‘I would therefore like to request a life-long supply of KitKat so that I can act as a means of quality control — it appears you need me more than I need you.’
Talk about a punch to the gut, there you are thinking you are about to bite into some delicious chocolate covered crisp wafers then BAM its solid chocolate. Had to be so disheartening so I can totally understand asking for a lifetime supply of them in return to make up for the mistake. Some might say get over it , move on already but you don’t get anything if you don’t ask so I will not knock Saima’s hustle on this. Instead I will applaud it. “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars”. Its a classic negotiation tactic, you ask for more than what you want so if you have to settle for less it won’t be that bad. Maybe Saima gets lucky this will get enough traction and she will get a year free or a huge novelty Kit Kat.
Seeing this story got me thinking if I had to choose one chocolate bar to have a lifetime supply what would it be? Here are my top 5 chocolate bars
5. Baby Ruth
Almost like a Snickers light but with more peanuts, sometimes too many. Good candy but not as balanced as the top 4 hence its spot. Nothing to be ashamed of Baby Ruth.
The unique mix of cookie, chocolate and caramel is so distinctive and no other candy can do this combo better than a Twix.
3. Reese’s Fast Break
The newest bar on the list is a great one and makes you wonder why it wasn’t done sooner. Reese’s Fast Break has a milk chocolate coating over a peanut butter filling. Along with layer of rich nougat beneath the peanut butter. This one may jump higher down the road but its testament to the quality of the candy that is already this high on the list in such a short time.
One of the all time classic right here. In a similar way to the Twix there is no mistaking a Snickers because the way they own that caramel/nougat/peanut/chocolate combo.
- Kit Kat
This should come as no surprise because Kit Kats are simply put the best chocolate candy bar ever created. The thing that separates it from its peers is the great crunch and flavor you get with every bite but it will slow you down like the heavier chocolate bars. Its better to leave you wanting more than giving you too much. Kit Kat checks all the boxes and is the quintessential candy bar of America.
