In a big break away from its traditional flavours chocolate fans will be able to create their own bespoke eight-finger bar.

Last this year Nestle is launching a new KitKat Chocolatory website where for the first time shoppers can create their own bars and buy them online.

There will also be a pop-up inside the York chocolate Story attraction, where the KitKat was first created.

The popular chocolate bar was first introduced back in 1935 when it was known as Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp, before becoming KitKat a couple of years later.

In 2017, Nestle changed KitKat’s recipe to cut its sugar content.

In Japan, KitKat is already made in 300 weird and wonderful flavours such as purple potato, sake and green tea.

Earlier this month Krispy Kreme launched new KitkKat doughnuts. 

Last year, Nestle lost a legal battle over trademarking its four-finger bar.
