The Fundamental Difference Between the USA and Canada (Subtly Updated)


That's about it.

Thanks for your time. (Or, if you prefer, "Thanks for your time, eh?")

P.S. ~~ There's a "real" reason for this difference (from Wikipedia):

A Kit Kat bar is a confection which was first created by Rowntree Limited of York, England, and now produced worldwide by Nestlé, which acquired Rowntree in 1988, except in the USA where it is made under licence by Hershey's.

The Kit Kat has been manufactured by Nestlé for Canada, Germany, Japan, and Australia. Kit Kat bars available in the United States are manufactured under licence by The Hershey Company, a Nestlé competitor, due to a prior licensing agreement with Rowntree.

Gotta love the internet!!!


  1. Do they taste the same or does one taste a bit more Great White Northy?

  2. One tastes like NAFTA and one tastes like manifest destiny.

  3. We have bacon-flavoured Kit Kat up here, Mr. Ace.

    Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!


    (That might maybe a lie.)

  4. Uh-oh. Are we going to get into the whole "Canadian Bacon" thing again? (Where's Sarah when you need her, eh?)
