The Ultimate Nerd Candy

Android Kit Kat Statue Courtesy of The Hershey Company

Someone at Google must have had a serious chocolate craving while brainstorming the name of the latest Android mobile operating system. It's Android KitKat, after the chocolate-covered wafers that demand you give them a break. This isn't the first time the company's engineers have let sweets' obsessions inform products. A 2009 codename was Android Cupcake 1.5. To honor the K campaign, Hershey’s has already erected an enormous KitKat statue shaped like the Android mascot outside of its Pennsylvania headquarters. Also, starting today, specially-marked KitKat bars will be released (and given away at points of Android sale) featuring chances to win 1,000 Nexus 7 tablets, 150,000 Google Play $5 credits and 20,000 coupons for free bags of KitKat Minis. Your move, Apple.
