French for Raspberry

Framboise flavor

Framboise (from the French for raspberry) or Frambozenbier (Dutch) is a Belgian lambic beer that is fermented using raspberries. It is one of many modern fruitbeer types that have been inspired by the more traditional kriek beer, made using sour cherries. Unfortunately, as I am sure you can tell by the packaging, this Kit Kat has nothing to do with alcohol. It is instead supposed to mimic a popular dessert. The box explains that this particular bar contains 1.7% real cheese and 4.2% raspberry powder. By real cheese, it is supposed to taste like cream cheese, but I couldn’t taste anything past the raspberry flavor. I actually shared this Kit Kat with some of the teachers and my school and we all thought it was pretty good.

The box is pretty fancy as they used a special type of paper and the inside wrapping is equally impressive. On the back there is an area for you to write a message and the name of the intended recipient. I think these are supposed to be aimed for a “fancy” chocolate gift for mom.
