Junk Food Sunday: Kit Kat

"Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar…" is a familiar jungle for the delectable confection from Nestlé, the Kit Kat Bar.

Kit Kats, originally created in 1935 each finger of a Kit Kat is composed of three layers of crème-filled wafer, covered in an outer layer of chocolate that is a top ten candy bar in the US and a popular treat throughout the world, especially in Japan a phenomenon attributed to the coincidental similarity between the bar’s name and the Japanese phrase kitto katsu, which roughly translates to "You will surely win!" This has reportedly led to parents and children buying them for school examination days as a sort of good luck charm.

While mostly popular as a traditional and dark chocolate Kit Kat bar in the US. there are a wide variety of the Kit Kat available in the UK and Japan including Pickled Plum, Bubblegum(made with blue chocolate), Mango, Wasabi, and Green Tea.

A Kit Kat bar is not all it’s snapped up to be around the globe for the generic bar as well. Within the US the Kit Kat The wafer bar is manufactured by Hershey’s under license from Nestles of Europe. Outside of the US Kit Kat is manufactured by Nestlé, so side by side the taste is different. The chocolate used to make the non-U.S. version of the Kit Kat is the exact same recipe as the chocolate found in Nestle Crunch. Surprisingly, the non-U.S. Kit Kats tastes strangely similar to Nestle Crunch (the chocolate is the same, and the little rice crispies have pretty much the same flavor as the Kit Kat wafer).

Thought the many varieties of Kit Kat bars they are all broken into what are affectionately called fingers, referring to a chunk that can be broken off from the rest of the bar. The biggest finger bar is the chunky one that comes as one big mammoth bar. The bite size bars have two fingers and the standard bars come in 4 finger units. Larger versions have up to 8 fingers.

At a whopping 218 calories for a four-finger bar (regular size) is contains 38% of your daily saturated fat. Maybe breaking off a piece isn’t such a bad idea.
