Nestlé Is Turning KitKat Into a Breakfast Food

Nestlé has long encouraged customers to indulge in one of its famous KitKat candy bars when they manage to make time for a well-earned break. Now, the company also wants KitKats to be the go-to option for breakfast, rather than just snack time and dessert.

KitKat announced via Twitter today that it would launch a brand-new breakfast cereal inspired by the candy bar. The announcement came just in time for National Cereal Day, which happens to fall on March 7.

"Breaking news! KitKat Cereal is coming soon to a breakfast near you! Who's excited to try?" the brand tweeted.

The announcement immediately triggered a wave of excitement from fans who celebrated the new product in the comments section under the post.

"Oh my word….  life is now complete," one Twitter user wrote.

"I WANT IT," another commented.

Before unveiling the brand-new cereal, the brand teased on Twitter yesterday that a "whole new type of KitKat" was coming and dared customers to guess what it would be. With today's announcement, KitKat also shared a brief video clip unveiling the look of the KitKat Cereal box, which features the signature KitKat logo and red color found on the classic candy bars.

As any fan knows, a classic KitKat is a crunchy, chocolate-covered wafer bar that also comes in a wide variety of extra flavors like chunky peanut butter and white chocolate. Nestlé, the world's largest food company, owns the brand, though the Hershey Company produces KitKats in the U.S.

KitKat left out many details on the new breakfast cereal in the announcement, including its flavor profile, when it will debut, and where it will be released. Nestlé was contacted for more details on the cereal but did not immediately respond.

KitKat is joining a group of candy brands that have expanded beyond the sweets aisle and into the cereal aisle. Reese's Puffs, which feature the chocolate and peanut butter flavors of the popular Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, may be the most shining example of these candy-inspired cereals. Cereals inspired by Jolly Ranchers and Peeps have also appeared on the market.

While fans eagerly wait for the KitKat Cereal launch, they may find themselves paying more for their traditional KitKat bars in the meantime. Nestlé chief executive Mark Schneider announced last month that the company will raise prices this year to make up for higher production costs.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
