from the CEO that says water is not a human right and should be privatized. No thanks.

I sense perhaps a coupon/discount scheme on the works.

key lime pie is so much better than a kit kat... still as long at it doesn't in any way effect launch of 5.0 then they can call it crisco for all i care

Key lime pie is one of the best desserts... second only to Lava Cake (that should be the next name for sure)

I think its a very good deal for both.

This feels like "fair play" in sports. Companies should start using it more often, money be damned, sometimes!

Cheers!

Seeing as Android is owned by Google and Google is an American company, and in America, KitKats are produced by Hershey, shouldn't they be produced by Hershey?

(Since Hershey makes FAR better chocolate, anyway!)

Caffeinecarl, KitKat bar is made by Nestle, as the article suggests. Hershey has no association with KitKat, and never has.

Seems my hunch about a Kit Kat product tie-in was correct. The use of a trademarked name made it suspicious (looked what happened with M$ and the "Metro" name they had to drop).

Sounds more like a marketing deal since they never made this a problem with Froyo. Well, that and the fact it doesn't matter if no ones heard of the food product you named an OS after.

c'mon Key Lime Pie doesn't fit in the pocket while kitkat does ... makes sense.

It's just a codename, who cares. The actual release is still 5.0

Caffeinecarl, just because Hershey makes KitKat in the USA does not mean that is the only place in the world where KitKats, or indeed Android, is sold - there is a whole other 95% of the human race in other places

Let's make this about chocolate... so you say your mass producer is making far better chocolate... but far better than what ? some other crap supermarket brands? I'm afraid you live fed by marketing lies. There isn't a single corporate large volume producer that's making high quality chocolate period

I love nonsensical brand crossovers. I bet in 20 years one of those candy bars will be worth serious coin.

How nice to see a product/promoter tie in.

Maybe Preparation H can do a tie-in with Metro next.

Commercial fitness centers could help subsidize it. Sounds like a business opportunity!

That is the point: Hershey does NOT make KitKat, people!

Look:
http://www.hersheys.com/pure-products.aspx
http://www.nestle.com/brands

Find KitKat on the Hershey website. You won't. Nestle also manufactures many products and sells in the USA, including... you guessed it! KitKat bars.

People must assume that Hershey makes ALL candy bars. Mars and Nestle would avidly disagree.

ehh... I'm sure what he ment that Hershey's factories make kitkat for usa... not that they sell KitKat under Hershey's logo.
