    That's nearly as bad as opening a packet of crisps from the bottom. You just don't do it.

    Got to agree, a Kit Kat is made for splitting and I hate the chunky ones for this very reason, they just aren't real Kit Kats! Apart from that, if they did away with the 'fingers' it would reduce the overall surface area available for covering in chocolate! :eek:
    I reserve the right not to spend.
    The less I spend, the more I can afford.

    I’m not sure why, but I was quite shocked at this, it seemed plain wrong. Is it just me?
    Next time put up a sign forbidding such actions!! :eek::rolleyes::p

    It depends on my mood at the time - sometimes I just eat it as is and sometimes I break it into two. Have to say I LOVE the kit kat caramels that are out at the moment. yummmmmmmmmm.

    I thought you were more liberal than that Martin. If a man chooses to munch his kitkat in that way so be it.

    I wonder what you'd have done if it had been the old style wrapper and he hadn't carefully rubbed his thumb over the top of each finger to expose the kitkat writing in the foil, followed by running a nail between the fingers to split the foil?

    Martin, did he offer you a (Kit Kat) finger or just eat as if you weren't there?

    If it's the latter, then that's rude - next time you buy a finger-portioned Kit Kat, "forget" to offer him any *evil grin*

    Yes, I'm being evil (again)!
