You've Been Eating KitKats Wrong Your Entire Life

You've Been Eating KitKats Wrong Your Entire Life

Excuse me?

Name a chocolate more iconic than a KitKat. You can’t, can you?

Cool, crispy wafer, lovingly coated with a thick layer of milk chocolate – it’s the perfect accompaniment to your mid-morning cuppa.

But it appears that we may have been chowing down on the chocolatey treat in the completely wrong manner.

How do you eat your KitKat? (

Hot debate over how to eat your KitKat has stemmed from TikTok after Australian-based duo, the Rybka Twins, shared the rather disturbing way they tuck in.

While Teagan Rybka delicately broke the four sticks apart, and nibbled at her KitKat one finger at a time, her twin sister Sam ate her KitKat like a monster.

By that, we mean she took a big bite out of the entire block all at once.

Would you eat a KitKat like this? (

We feel ill that a KitKat could be devoured in such a ridiculous manner.

However, a spokesperson has spoken out to say that Sam isn’t wrong in how she eats her KitKat.


Nope, apparently there is only one right way to have a KitKat, according to Nestle’s head of marketing, Joyce Tan.

Speaking to the Mail Online, she explained: “We know Aussies are extremely passionate about how they eat their KitKat, and fans across the country are stepping up to defend their technique.

KitKat's should be enjoyed while you relax (

“Whether you snap, nibble or chomp, what really matters is that you take a break from your day to enjoy your KitKat your way.”

Yep, so no matter how you snack, be it daintily or fiercely, the ‘right’ way to eat a KitKat is to enjoy it while you’re having a break.

Hmmm…we’re still going to be eating out KitKat finger by finger, we think.

In more recent KitKat news, the brand have recently released a Zebra edition bar.

the new choc features KitKat's trademark crispy wafer on a dark chocolate base, topped with marbled dark and white chocolate.

And we're sure it'll taste as exciting as it looks, with the new bar having a distinct black and white pattern on it to match its Zebra moniker.

Now we know the right wait to be eating it, we can't wait to get stuck in...
