In case you've missed it, the nation is in love with all things Lotus Biscoff - the small, crunchy biscuits made in Belgium.

The unique biscuit flavour has been used to create sauce, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and cakes - and it is now available in KitKat form.

The Biscoff KitKats are currently available to buy in the UK online from GB Gifts, in a mini size or a pack of seven 'mini moments' for £9.99. GB Gifts imports snacks from around the world, and these sweet treats are originally from Dubai.

What does it taste like?

The Biscoff KitKat is like a KitKat Chunky but with Lotus Biscoff spread on top of the wafer - ideal for fans of the original biscuits.

Those who can't wait to try the new chocolate bar could always make their own at home by adding some Lotus Biscoff spread to a normal KitKat.

KitKat flavours

The Biscoff KitKat is just one of a whole host of flavours, many of which are only available in Japan, where the brand is extremely popular.

Market research in Japan suggests that the brand's popularity is down to its name being linked to good luck. Because of this popularity, new flavours and different coloured packaging were developed, starting with green tea in 2004. Since then, the product has been sold in more than 300 seasonal and regional flavors

While we are used to seeing the original wafer chocolate biscuit packaged in its red branding, common weird and wonderful flavours abroad include hot Japanese chili, baked potato, cinnamon cookie and matcha.
