Originally Kit Kat was named chocolate crisp by the inventor, Rowntree's. The brand is now owned by Nestle' but the Hershey Company has a licence to produce Kit Kat bars in the United States. This arrangement dates to 1969, when Hershey negotiated an agreement for Kit Kat and the Rolo with Rowntree's in the United States.
Kit Kat Memories
Ever since I can remember, I have admired and loved the famous Kit Kat candy bar. It has been my favorite candy and remains so till date.
One of my fondest memories is the time when I was around 5 years old. My uncle would gift me a Kit Kat candy bar each time he visited us. I would then break off each of the fingers from the bar and place it on my fingers and pretend that I had chocolate fingers! I would walk around the house with my palm held out for all to see. Slowly, I would eat off each finger, one by one until all the chocolate was gone.
Of course I don't do this anymore, but whenever I pass by a vending machine that stocks a Kit Kat bar, it brings back fond memories of my childhood antics. ~ Fatema from Georgia
