Create your own fancy Kit Kat

Create your own Kit Kat

Kit Kats are great. They're one of the most reliable things on earth, and providing you're not boycotting Nestle as some are, then no-one says 'no' to four fingers of delight.

Get your mind out of the gutter.

Well, the good news with all that is the Kit Kat Chocolatory, which is a pop-up thing, which is opening at The Street, Westfield Stratford City.

That's the place where Kit Kats go to get fancy. There, you can design your own fancy Kit Kat, with customised packaging too.

After choosing milk/dark/white chocolate, you can then put up to three fancy-ass toppings on it (from a choice of 16). Then, you poke a touchscreen for a bit, and you get your bespoke packaging.

Your Kit Kat will be whipped up by a chocolatier, and you'll have it within the hour.

So if you like, you can have one that tastes like a black forest gateau, or sticky toffee popcorn.

There's also salted caramel crème brûlée with Madagascan vanilla seeds as well. It might make your teeth itch, but that's the joy of sugar.

Want more? Well, there'll be two Kit Kats that you can pick up which have been designed by Michelin-starred chef, Michael O'Hare. He's made a 'Chilli & Mint' Kit Kat, and one that's based on dandelion & burdock.

The Kit Kat pop-up is open for five weeks from October 5 to November 8.

"Consumers are going to be given the opportunity to create their interpretation of a confectionery icon," said Andrew McIver, managing director of Nestlé Confectionery in the UK and Ireland.

"The Create Your Break, Special and Signature Edition Kit Kat bars elevate the brand into a brave new territory and offer fans the opportunity to try unique, exciting and delicious products."

How much? Creating your own will set you back £7, or you can pick up one of the special edition ones for £3.50. Or you could just buy a load of normal ones from the shop and gorge yourself.
