Freia Kvikklunsj – Chocolate Covered Wafer 47g – Norway’s version of Kit Kat – crispy wafers covered in creamy smooth milk chocolate. Known as the hiking chocolate.
Fun fact: Kvikk Lunsj once beat Kit Kat in a head to head taste test. It is a yearly occurence and this year we sold out within hours of the verdict!
But fear not – the other Norwegian chocolate is just as good and you can find it here – Norwegian chocolate.
When kvikk lunsj – literally ‘quick lunch’ was launched, its nutritional value was emphasised – it was hailed as a brilliant meal for those in need of energy. Just picture it – tall blonde Nowegians with ruddy red cheeks and knitted jumpers, hiking every chance they get – breaking for a kvikk lunsj (and an orange, if it’s Easter or skiing involved). Marketeers even claimed it held the same nutritional value as an egg, two pieces of bread and a glass of milk! We won’t get into that discussion – we’ll simply tell you that it is a delicious chocolate that tastes best when enjoyed outside in nature. The four fingers mean it’s ideal for sharing, but we recommend getting more than one. It really is that good.
