The most influential candy bar and how it shaped me, by Kitty Dunn

Time Magazine has just released a list of the most influential candy bars of all time, and what do you know, my favorite tops the list. That my friends, is the Kit Kat Bar, due in part to the fact that it was the first candy bar used in socializing. Hey! Who wants to come to my Kit Kat party!  (See the whole list here.)

Yes, it's cookie goodness and creamy chocolatey-ness is delicious, but how has it influenced me?

1. When I was a kid, Kit Kat bars had five chocolate sticks. My mom would buy a candy bar, give me two sections, my brothers two sections, and keep just one for herself. This taught me about maternal sacrifice.  Later, it taught me product downsizing.

2. Kit Kat bars are quite addictive. That's something I learned after finishing a whole bag of fun sized bars before Halloween. I may be influenced in this same way again next year.

3. The candy inspired me to go by the name Kit Kat insteady of Kathleen. Later this was changed to Kitty.  Okay, that's not true, but it could have been.

4. Just the thought of one can influence me to break into song.
