In a recent documentary series called Inside the Factory, it was mentioned that, in a way, Kit Kat bars were made out of other Kit Kat bars. While no one had raised that question, in particular, the company decided to talk about it and that got people online to react.
Kit Kat Bars Inside Kit Kat Bars
Most people assume the middle of a tasty Kit Kat bar is simply made up of wafers and chocolate, but they’re apparently wrong. While the packet says “crunchy wafer” and “smooth milk chocolate”, there’s one more detail when it comes to the recipe, and it’s seriously confusing people. The paste between the wafers is actually made from other crushed-up Kit Kats.
Naturally, the internet immediately reacted to the news with many witty comments. One YouTuber stated that this was a good way to tackle food waste, pointing out that when a Kit Kat gets broken, it isn’t thrown out but used again. So, according to him, this meant that a Kit Kat bar was literally made up of crushed-up Kit Kats.
No Kit Kat Is Left Behind
Things are actually a bit more complex than people on the internet imagine they’d be. Apparently, Nestlé turns the rejected Kit Kats into a paste and uses that to layer the wafers between the bars. This gives each Kit Kat a unique taste and texture. Still, the online comments were really witty and pointed out that if Kit Kats were made of Kit Kats, the real mystery was what the first Kit Kat was made from.
After long online debates, some people eventually concluded that Kit Kat bars were in an infinite loop of Kit Kat that never ends. Sadly, the first Kit Kats were probably made of just chocolate and wafers, and using the crushed-up broken bars became a thing later on. Still, that was a good bit of food trivia that Nestlé chose to share with its fans.
Man Plans to Build a Boat & Sail Across the Atlantic to Meet Elon Musk
When it comes to resolutions at the start of the new year, most of us go for the basic “exercise more, eat better, learn Spanish” direction. One man, however, decided to go big and bold, setting out to build a boat and use it to sail the Atlantic to meet none other than Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk.
One Man’s Journey to Meet Elon Musk
Krystian Ryt moved to Manchester, UK, from his native Poland about six years ago. When he’s not busy working as a machine operator, the Pole spends his evenings building boats. His passion led him to transform his studio flat into a makeshift shipyard. And now, he’s joining two of his passions together — building boats and meeting with a man whose work and contribution to the world he admires.
Although the longest sailing experience Ryt has had so far on one of his boats is a five-hour journey on the Manchester canals. That’s all about to change for the 26-year-old who plans to take up a two-month sailing trip across the Atlantic to meet billionaire Elon Musk at his Texas SpaceX Starbase before the end of the year. Ambitious, right?
It’s a Question of When, Not If
Ryt is used to hearing that his idea is beyond crazy. After all, Krystian has no engineering qualifications and has never sailed solo across the Atlantic before, much less on a self-made boat. He’s not bothered by the naysayers, though. To the Pole, it’s a matter of finding the finances (for which he has set up a GoFundMe) and going to meet one of his idols. He understands it’s “a really expensive idea,” but it’s one worth pursuing.
To Krystian, Elon Musk is an inspiration to everyone because he’s “pushing humanity forward,” and that’s exactly what he wants to do as well. So, in a way, it isn’t a question of whether he’ll be able to achieve his goal, but rather a matter of when he’s going to have the resources to make it happen.
