In addition, there are 100 getaway goodies to be won every day during the promotional period with prizes including KitKat branded passport covers, sun visors, beach towels and luggage straps.

Promotional packs will be available across the market from this month with formats featured including consumer favourites KitKat 4 Finger, KitKat Chunky, KitKat 2 Finger and KitKat Bites.
