    Key lime pie's are actually quite good if they are made with the right ingredients and instructions, but kitkat sounds better for a android version xD

    Now I got that figured. The last time I was wearing my large-tread boots and stepped on a turd - it left a footprint that looked exactly like this KitKat figure.

    I like it when companies play together! Android and KitKat? That's two of my favorites too! I'll be grabbing some candy bars soon, getting Google Play credits would be sweet ;-)

    Ah Key-lime-pie was a mouthful now it's out for kit-kat.
     
  16. I'd really like to see "Halo-halo" in their future code names =)

    Reminds me of fruit rollups: What will they think of next?
     
  18. I didn't know a brand name can be used by another company as a codename.
    Was expecting lime tart, lemon sorbet, lemonade.....

    I'm waiting for these project names but the likelihood of these project names being used is null.

    Vodka
    Smirnoff
    Bacardi

    Although, I am a little shocked of them dropping 5.0 for 4.4...?

    For the past couple of years I've been gorging myself on Gingerbread & Jellybeans. Now I may have to switch to Kit Kat... This is not good for my weight, not to mention what my dentist will have to say. I sure hope device manufacturers throw in a couple of coupons for a couple of new outfits with their devices to 'sweeten' the deal. :)

    I think KitKat Chunkys are better, especially the hazelnut one.

    It was. Nestle got a very good deal.
