The chocolate bar Kit Kat is an iconic treat after being around for more than 80 years.The sweet is either two or four fingers, made of three layers of wafer, and is covered by an outer layer of chocolate with each finger able to snapped off individually.

Kit Kat is produced by parent company Nestlé in 16 countries.

In the US, Kit Kat is produced under license by The Hershey Company. In Japan, the name has a coincidental resemblance to phrase ‘Kitto Katsu’, which translates into good luck, or ‘surely win’.
