Snacking in Saudi
NEW KitKat Chunky with Lotus Biscoff in Egypt (Closer Look)
After a whirlwind of excitement the day I announced this launch, I wanted to give everyone a closer look as well as more info regarding the new KitKat Arabia Chunky Lotus Biscoff bars in Egypt.
The new bars are made for the Egyptian market and are currently only available there for the time being (despite previous false statements made by an individual in the KSA), but will eventually launch in the GCC as well. One may ask, "How so?" Let's take the new Twix Crunchy Caramel and Salted Caramel bars that were recently launched in the GCC as an example. They were made in Egypt for the GCC, and still aren't available in Egyptian supermarkets ! Likewise, this new KitKat Chunky Lotus will likely be imported by various specialty shops in the GCC before an official launch at retailers.
I haven't received any info on exact launch dates for the GCC yet unfortunately, but this Lotus-obsessed region will get its dream bar sooner than later for sure.
So in the meantime, all we can do in the GCC is simply wait for a specialty shop to stock them, or for the official launch at major retailers -- or do what I do: snack hunt the entire region until I get my Lotus-loving hands on em! Stay tuned for more...
