Fun Fact February 20, 2020.

20 February 2020


Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.  The origin of the Kit Kat dates back to 1935 when the four-finger wafer crisp chocolate bar was launched in London. Back then, it wasn’t known as the Kit Kat but “Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp”. It was renamed to “KitKat Chocolate Crisp” two years later – Rowntree’s dropped the “Chocolate Crisp” after the World War II.  The flavor for the product was also changed during those years due to food shortages, which resulted in alterations in the recipe and took on a blue wrapping.  After the war it took back its original milk-based recipe and red packaging.  Though it’s not entirely clear where the actual name came from, the use of the world “Kit Cat” or “Kit Kat” for food, is said to date back to the 18th century, where at the time, mutton pies known as Kit-Kats were served at the Kit-Cat Club in London.  Kit Kats became Rowntree’s leading product within two years of its launch and has remained a top product in the Rowntree’s family ever since.  What’s inside a Kit Kat? Broken Kit Kats that are damaged during production—they get ground up and go between the wafers inside, along with cocoa and sugar. That’s a way to not let anything go to waste!
