Since its establishment in 1935, KitKat has firmly established itself in Irish culture and continues to be one of the biggest global confectionery brands, with more than 17 billion KitKat fingers eaten across the globe each year, with KitKat bars sold in more countries than any other confectionery brand. In the UK and Ireland alone more than one billion KitKat products are eaten every year.
