Kit Kat contest up and running, win one of a 1000 Google Nexus 7 (2013) slates being given away

0. phoneArena 06 Sep 2013, 20:18 posted on

Besides being a tasty snack, Kit Kat is now a new Android build, 4.4 to be precise; and to kick off the new partnership between Kit Kat and Android, a new contest is being run with 1000 lucky winners scheduled to win a Google Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. 150,000 winners will get a $5 Google Play Store Credit. 20,000 will get a free bag of Kit Kat Minis. As far as we know, there is no plan to give out any Kit Kat Max bars (just a joke)...

I love Kitkat. Just like all sweet snack must be consume in moderation.
As for naming the Android 4.4 as Kitkat is a brilliant move by Google. it's creating more awareness for the Android mobile OS. Mom, dad and grand parent would learnt about it too! Start discussing about who have what plus android is ideal because it's much cheaper than the competitive brand.

My mom is asking me to get her an android tablet so she could bring it to Sunday church service just like the rest of her peers.

"The contest is actually bring run by Hershey and requires you to look, as they saw on television, for specially marked packages of Kit Kat with the Android mascot on the wrapper."

...

I'm guessing this sentence was written courtesy of Siri?

I didn't want to say Google Now because that would be an insult at Google's party.

But if you insist.

That sentence looked like it was translated by Google Now.

Better?

(Oh, and don't talk about how it isn't better because Google Now is perfect at voice-recognition, because you know it SOOOOOOO isn't.)

Can someone explain how "no purchase is necessary", yet I can't enter without a code? And a "purchase" doesn't increase my odds of winning? Am I missing something?

It means you can walk into the store, open Kit Kat wrappers, take the code, and leave the opened bars on the ground without paying.

Hah, if only it were that simple.

The short version is Nestle does indeed own the Kit Kat. However, Hershey has exclusive rights to produce, market, and sell the Kit Kat in the United States. Like owning a car you're not allowed to drive.

Nestle gets to do it everywhere else in the world, though.
