KitKat Change Their Recipe For The First Time Since WW II

If you love yourself a break - and a KitKat, then you may well feel a little bit better about breaking off a ‘finger’ and indulging. Or, you may not.

A new healthier KitKat recipe boasting 10 per cent less sugar will hit the shelves in the UK next week - and while it’s better for our waistlines, a few people aren’t THRILLED about it.

The classic four finger KitKat had 213 calories but the reformulated version will have just a few less at 209 calories.


Nestle says the change will slash more than 1,000 tonnes of sugar and three billion calories from the UK’s diet.

SURELY that’s a good thing people?!

Obviously Nestle has made sure to reassure fans that their favourite chocolate bars will taste exactly the same as the original, but loyal fans are not convinced.

Fiona Kendrick, chairwoman and chief executive of Nestlé UK and Ireland, said: “When we announced that we were removing some of the sugar from our confectionery, the first questions that consumers asked us were ‘Are you going to make things smaller?’ and ‘Will it taste the same?’”

“I’m pleased to say that these products are the same size as the ones they are replacing and taste just as good.

KitKats haven't had a change THIS big since 1942, when a shortage of milk during the war years altered the recipe.
