Kit Kat is now best bar none

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

CHOCO­LATE ad­dicts are pay­ing al­most FOUR TIMES the price for chunky peanut but­ter Kit Kat bars af­ter shops ran dry.

The sweet treat won a re­cent poll against three other flavours to be put into pro­duc­tion for­ever, but mak­ers Nes­tle say the new bars won’t be rolling off the pro­duc­tion line un­til April.

Four bars – peanut but­ter, white choco­late, orange, and dou­ble choc – have been on sale since Jan­uary 23, but newsagents and su­per­mar­kets quickly ran out of the peanut but­ter bars be­cause they were so pop­u­lar.

Nes­tle launched a public vote on which bar to keep pro­duc­ing and an­nounced that the peanut but­ter bar had trounced the rest, gain­ing 47 per cent of the to­tal vote.

Now fans are so des­per­ate for a ‘fix’ they are pay­ing more than £2 for a bar, rather than the nor­mal 60p.

Sellers on ebay who stocked up on the bars are now coin­ing it in, sell­ing boxes of 24 peanut but­ter Kit Kats for £50.99 – £2.12 each.
