The KIT-KAT page

(still under construction – photos to follow)

This page features the weird and wonderful variations of the humble Kit-Kat from all over the world – well at least those bought here Australia & the many varieties marketed in Japan, where there seems to be more released than in any other country (at one stage I saw 10 different types on the shelf in ONE convenience store) !!!

If there is a colour mentioned after the name, it is the colour of the chocolate other than brown. (‘K’ = some Kanji that I have not translated yet !!!)
