SUB­STAN­DARD KITKAT BARS ADDED TO FILL­ING

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

KitKat fill­ings con­tain re­ject choco­late bar fin­gers, it has been claimed.

The four-fin­gered Nestlé snack, named one of the ‘‘most in­flu­en­tial’’ choco­late bars of all time by Time Mag­a­zine, is made from the de­li­cious sweet treat and wafer, but it is un­der­stood that within the wafer is crushed up KitKats.

The sweet treat has been in more than 200 flavours, but its se­cret fill­ing has been un­known un­til now.

Some peo­ple as­sumed it was a dif­fer­ent type of choco­late, which Nestlé vaguely de­scribes as “smooth and creamy choco­layer”, but ac­cord­ing to The Mir­ror news­pa­per, qual­ity as­sur­ance tech­ni­cians on the pro­duc­tion line are tasked with re­mov­ing sub­stan­dard bars that have im­per­fec­tions, and in­stead of throw­ing these KitKats away, they are said to be mashed up into a fine paste and re­made into a sen­sual fill­ing. But the method has alarmed Men­tal Floss, which noted: “If all KitKats con­tain the re­mains of im­per­fect KitKats, and not all KitKats are per­fect, then ev­ery KitKat that gets re­cy­cled con­tains the re­mains of older KitKats, which con­tained older KitKats, which con­tained older KitKats ... How far back does that ac­tu­ally go?!”
