And as KitKat celebrates its 80th anniversary, its maker Nestle has opened its UK archives to reveal how the snack got its name.

KitKat, originally made by Rowntrees in York, was named after a Londoner called Christopher. Further investigation has uncovered that there is only one alleged painting in existence of this man, and its location is currently unknown.

Nestle UK are appealing to the public to check their attics in case they are unwitting owners of “an important piece of British history”.
