According to brand owner Nestlé, the KitKats will be one of this year's 'must-have' presents but they come at quite a price up to £14 a bar. That seems pretty expensive for four fingers of chocolate but such is the popularity of chocolate as a Christmas gift (according to Deloitte's Christmas Survey 2018, chocolate is the number one present for adults), they will probably sell well.
