One of the nation’s favourite chocolate bars has undergone a luxury makeover.
Nestlé has just launched a new range of “luxury handcrafted” KitKat fingers that will be available in bespoke packaging – but it won’t come cheap.
The £14 KitKat Create Your Break eight-finger bar will give shoppers the opportunity to create their own expertly crafted KitKat bars from a wide range of options.

There will be nearly 1,500 flavour combinations, with ingredients including rose petals, cocoa nibs and shortbread pieces, and the option to coat the fingers in ruby chocolate.
A cheaper option will be to buy one of six handcrafted six-finger special editions, which start at £7.50 for flavours such as Zingtastic Gin and Tonic, Springtime in Japan and Whisky and Ginger.
Rabia Khan, head of KitKat Chocolatory for Nestlé, said: “This is the biggest news for KitKat since the introduction of the KitKat Chunky exactly 20 years ago.
“You know how much people enjoy experimenting with new and exciting KitKat flavours, and the KitKat Chocolatory offers a whole new, premium KitKat experience as well as the chance to create your very own personalised break.”
Chocolate connoisseurs won’t be able to buy these treats from their local newsagents, though. Instead, the bars will be available to buy in 30 John Lewis stores across the country.
