Have you ever wondered how to correctly eat a Kit Kat in a formal dining setting? Probably not. But if you’re intrigued, an etiquette expert has revealed the posh way to feast on one. Watch the clip below:
Content creator Lucy Challenger is the founder and CEO of Polo and Tweed, an agency that sources employees for their wealthy clientele and teaches social media users the correct etiquette to fit in with the upper class.
And Challenger’s followers were in for a treat when she demonstrated how to properly eat a Kit Kat in the unlikely event you’re served one in a formal dinning setting.
The tongue-in-cheek TikTok, which has amassed almost four million views, saw the 38-year-old sitting at a dinner table with a snack-sized Kit Kat on a white plate in front of her.
She begins: “I'm going to show you the formal British way to eat a Kit Kat.
“Now it's highly, highly, highly unlikely that you were to be served a Kit Kat in a formal British dining setting. But if you were, how would one eat it?"
Before showing her Kit Kat eating technique, Lucy revealed the bar was invented in 1935 in York and was originally named Roundtree's Chocolate Crisp.
Challenger then started elegantly unwrapping the bar, leaving the foil and sleeve on her plate while giving a running commentary.
She continued: “I unwrap the Kit Kat with my fingers around removed the paper layer and place it onto the plate.
“I simply snap the Kit Kat in two, lift one section of the Kit Kat, placing the other section down on the plate, then place it into my mouth in a small neat delicate bite to eat.
“One continues to eat the Kit Kat until the Kit Kat is fully consumed.”
Since being uploaded on 14 July, the near-two minute clip has garnered over 640,000 likes and 16,000 comments, with many remarking on Challenger’s refined eating style.
One wrote: “Imma remember this for next time I want to pretend to be posh.”
“Love this, made me hungry though how delicate you treated it,” another follower penned.
A third joked: “I thought she was gonna eat the Kitkat with a knife and fork” (sic).
“Why did I genuinely watch this whole thing like I dont know how to eat a kitkat,” a commenter added.
Meanwhile, other followers shared their own way to eat the confectionery, with one sharing: “Bite both sides and drink tea through it so it melts and then eat it.”
“I bite the chocolate off around the wafer… then eat the wafer on its own,” another wrote.
