IRELAND HAS A love affair with the humble Kit Kat bar – so much so that we can have arguments over what is the best way to eat them.
Now, if you inspect the inside of the Kit Kat you will of course see that the wafers are separated by a different type of chocolate than the outside layer.
And thanks to investigation work by Mental Floss based on a BBC documentary, they have discovered that the chocolate between the wafers is… mashed up Kit Kats.
Mashed up Kit Kats. Let that sink in for a second.

Mental Floss revealed this shocking fact yesterday, based on the BBC TV show Inside the Factory: How Our Favourite Foods are Made. As they report:
When they roll off the production line, quality assurance technicians remove the Kit Kats that have too many exterior air bubbles, off-center wafers, or any other imperfections, right down to those that simply aren’t shiny enough… But rather than being thrown away, those second-class bars are recycled back into the production process.
