A fresh wave of unease fell on the markets today with news that the limited edition orange Kit Kat has fallen in value by 25% during just one day‘s trading.
‘Limited edition Kit Kats have been one of the safest investments for those seeking a low-risk tax free yield,’ explained Nigel Sparkes of investment bankers Westwood Holdings. ‘It was assumed that the strictly restricted production run guaranteed them a solid resale value – that and their deliciously orangey taste. But of course the sell by date crisis just couldn’t have been predicted.’
‘This is an unsettling period for the square mile,’ confided Martin Croft, editor of Money Week, ‘Many people have been using these collectible snacks as their pension plan and now face an uncertain future. I’m just glad I ploughed my savings into multiple copies of that special edition Alexandra Burke CD with six extra live tracks.’
