As a child, I always ate this chocolate bar and i'm 100% sure it used to be Kit-Kat. For some reason, a google image search only reveals it as KitKat without the dash in between. Strangest of all, if you go youtube and look at the old commercials, the dash is not there.

1988 old commercial:
www.youtube.com...

Does anyone clearly remember the dash as I do? This is one ME that creeps me out because i'm very certain on this one while the rest I may attribute it to faulty memory. I don't see any reason to drop the dash. Either we have slipped into a different time-line (A very far fetched theory) where Kit-Kat never existed, or the government / major companies are doing some kind of memory experiment by subtly changing the words/logos of products to see the response of the masses.

No.

You got that part right.

Or maybe your memory is bad.

So despite the fact that you've found absolutely no evidence of there ever being a dash, you still come to the conclusion that your memory is 100% correct and there is this massive, overly complicated theory about time line shifts and the like...

Omg not another one of these threads!

I assure you it hasn't changed and water is still wet.

You know what? Before I even heard of this Mandela Effect, I chanced upon the new KitKat logo and the first thing that came to my mind was that they dropped the dash. I never thought too much about it until someone mentioned that Kit-Kat became KitKat and there was no evidence whatsoever of the dash left except in people's memories. I remembered clearly Kit-Kat.

Try this memory test:
www.humanbenchmark.com...

They give you a limited time to remember a string of numbers, I can do 15 numbers (Which I believe is a good score).

I'm sorry I know it's off topic and not polite but please stop with the Mandela effect!! It's cool and fun but it's not real people just remember things differently.

Maybe I'm wrong by kit Katz and bears Don't prove it.

Many others clearly remembered Kit-Kat with me too. I mean if Frankenstein became Frankenstain or Einstein became Einstain, you would also freak out.

I for one appreciate the thread.

I don't remember a dash at all, but the ME is interesting and ATS is a wonderful place to explore the theory.

By the way, the Kit-Kat changed to KitKat a long time ago (Like at least 10 years if not more) because I remembered Kit-Kat as a child, but never did ate them for a long time already. So most of you who remembered it a few years ago, it probably is already KitKat.

Yes, I clearly remember kit-kat.

It may not be the best example of the Mandella Effect, but I definitely do recall the dash.

Thanks for the positive comment. See this wiki link below:
en.wikipedia.org...

Quote under history: "Use of the name "Kit Kat" or "Kit Cat" for a type of food goes back to the 18th century, when mutton pies known as a Kit-Kat were served at meetings of the political Kit-Cat Club in London."

So the KitKat chocolate bars were named after mutton pies known as Kit-Kat. At least I know i'm not bonkers since I have a reference where there was a dash in between the kit and kat.

So there is no evidence of the company themselves making the change intentionally?

I've been waiting for the next ME to come out. I still need to see more to believe but they sure seem to be adding up.

ETA: I see the post above now....that is interesting. I never knew this.

But it hasn't....so I wont...same as I wont freak out over dodgy memories and one of the silliest conspiracy theories that is entertained here.

Wal-Mart or Walmart? That one always gets me.

I love reading about the Mandela stuff. Hopefully Jacy will pop in.

People do remember things differently. There are several research studies that delve deep into false memories. However, we are discussing collective memory on large scales. There is definitely food for thought. Besides, it IS a fun topic. That alone is reason enough to explore it. Perhaps it's all a bunch of malarky, but maybe it isn't. The most impressive example is Tienamen Square. I know several people who watched the guy get run over by a tank, and it really impacted them. Yet, the official narrative says otherwise. Some see it as an extensive cover-up by the Chinese government. Some see it as evidence of the Mandella Effect. Some couldn't care any less. Still, what can cause such differing memories about such a huge event? I mean, Tienamen Square was MAJOR at the time.

I'm never sure. That tricky dash always gets me. No one ever types Wal-Mart, they always type Walmart...

But you're not really discussing collective memory on large scales. Mostly conspiracy theorists are weighing in. This causes confirmation bias, as most people discussing the topic will be remembering the "Mandela Affected" memories.
