From Mr Ken Farnhill

Sir: I can confirm Alexi Sayle's experience (Section Two, 31 October) of the different taste of KitKats destined for other, particularly sunnier, parts of the globe.

May I point out, however, that whatever Nestle has done to the KitKat, and other brand names under its control, the company cannot be regarded as KitKat's "creator". That honour belongs to Rowntree Mackintosh. Nestle's main achievement, since taking over Rowntree, seems to be having made KitKat, Yorkie et al taste worse.

Yours faithfully,

Ken Farnhill


31 October
