Revealed: Secret ingredient between wafers of a Kit Kat


Most of us love chocolates like anything, and can’t succumb to temptation of having them. But sometimes, the ingredients being used in chocolate making can be quite interesting to know about.

KitKats is one of big names that define the love of chocolate. Light, crunchy, chocolatey, wafery… but the Kit Kat has a deep, dark secret.

The insides of the Kit Kat have now been unveiled, and it’s probably not what you expected.


The filling in-between the Kit Kat’s wafer is made up of… Damaged Kit Kats.

Any bars that finish factory line imperfect are thrown back to the start and used to line the wafer inside the bars. This means any imperfections, even a few visible bubbles on the chocolate’s surface.

Julie Walker, a Nestle factory worker told BBC: “They all go into rework, where they’re used for the fillings for the wafers. We’re picking off ones which are not of a good standard.”
