Kit Kat

A Kit Kat is a confection which was first created by Rowntree's of York, England and now produced worldwide by Nestlé, which acquired Rowntree in 1988,[1] except in the United States where it is made under licence by The Hershey Company. Each bar consists of fingers composed of three layers of crème-filled wafer, covered in an outer layer of chocolate. Each finger can be snapped from the bar one at a time.


USA Kit KatThe original four-finger version of this chocolate-covered biscuit bar was developed after a worker at the Rowntree's factory in York put a suggestion in the suggestion box for a snack that a 'man could have in his lunch box for work'.[citation needed]

It was launched in September 1935 in the UK as Rowntree's Chocolate Crisp (price: 2d). The two-finger version was launched on May 15, 1936. Rowntree's Chocolate Crisp was renamed Kit Kat Chocolate Crisp in 1937, and later just Kit Kat after World War II. The name is believed to have come from the Kit-Cat Club, an eighteenth-century political club for artists.[2]
