Nestlé’s Kit Kat are the chocolate covered wafers which have found their way into nearly every corner of the world. It’s burnt into our subconscious that to have a break is to have a Kit Kat.
I enjoyed them as treats growing up but mum had to store them in the fridge, as the chocolate would melt in the warm Malaysian weather. Apart from the traditional milk chocolate Kit Kat, there are now flavours galore, from decadent caramel to sophisticated dark chocolate, playful cookies and cream, to the cult-like wacky flavours found in Japan. Only the matcha (green tea) Kit Kats have hit our shores.
Kit Kat has been in Australia for 80 years, and to celebrate, Nestlé has opened a pop-up Kit Kat studio at Westfield Sydney CBD where punters can create their own personalized Kit Kat.
