    Family eat 20,000 Kit Kats



    A family ate more than 20,000 Kit Kat bars in two months in order to win prizes worth 12,000. The family bought the bars so that could take part in an online auction by Kit Kat makers Rowntree.

    Pat and Carol McGovern, 49, spent 3,000 buying 54,000 bars on a two-for-one offer so they could use points on the wrappers to bid in the auction reports The Sun.

    The couple and their sons Andrew, 22, and Scot, 16, got through 20,000 bars and gave away the rest.

    Retired soldier Pat, 53, of Redcar, Teesside, said: "We had them for breakfast, dinner and tea. We're over the moon - but sick of Kit Kats."

    They won holidays to Australia, Disneyland Paris and LA - plus a portable DVD player.

    I've lost all appetite for Kit Kat....I can't even imagine what it would be like to look at one after having eaten that many.

    At least

    The Rolaids or Tums company could have given them a years free supply of antacids.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
