Nestlé unveils the KitKat Chocolatory

The KitKat Chocolatory will arrive in 30 John Lewis & Partners shops across the UK and at York’s Chocolate Story later this week before being made available direct from Nestlé through a new online shop before the end of the year.

KitKat History

KitKat was invented in York back in 1935 when the first four-finger bar was introduced as the ‘Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp’ before the name ‘KitKat’ was adopted a couple of years later. We are big fans of Japanese KitKats, there you can buy flavours such as purple potato, green tea, pumpkin and sake!
