To see all the Kit Kat wrappers and related items I've collected before 2015 please visit my original website at


Above are various promotional items: cool bag; tin; tea cosy; ruler and the tray that marked the Golden Anniversary of the introduction by Rowntrees of the Kit Kat bar.

The Brit Kat Celebration Pack was produced to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. On my original website you can see the wrapper issued to mark the Queen's Coronation in 1953.

Also on my original website, I said that I was not impressed by Nestle's reworking of the lettering when they introduced a highlight line. I notice that this year they have returned to a plain red as in the three packs on the left.


Here is one of the newest Kit Kat tins in the shape of a bus together with one of the oldest.


When Kit Kat was first produced by Rowntrees in 1935 it was called 'Chocolate Crisp'. It was two years later when the name Kit Kat was added.

So this tin must be from 1937, 1938 or 1939 to 1939.


It now seems like there new types of Kit Kat every month with constantly changing wrappers! I make no attempt to collect them all but was interested to see one in December that includes a description of the bar as it appeared in 1947 - 'Four crisp wafer fingers covered with milk chocolate' - (see right). Below it is label in a metalic red from Spain that has 'Have a break, have a KitKat' in English.  On the right is a label from a packet of  Santa KitKats. They are also available as rabbits in the run up to Easter!
