This posh craft Kit Kat may not be one you want to scoff down with a quick cuppa, however. An eight-fingered, custom-made 150g is expected to cost £14, with the special edition bars priced from £7.50.
It is expected that customers will be able to 'create their own break' by choosing from four types of chocolate and 14 ingredients to build their own Kit Kat.
Budding chocolatiers will also be able personalise the packaging for their handmade order's delivery.
The Kit Kat Chocolatory is also available at selected retailers, including some John Lewis stores.
Going by reactions on social media, people can't wait to get stuck in.
"They look yummy and we can't wait to give them a try!" tweeted one impressed potential customer.
"All looking very exciting!" added another.
Another user enthused: "Say whhaaaaaat?? Don't mind if I do..."
Kit Kat boutiques with the Chocolatory name are already popular in Japan, where they are associated with good luck - especially for students sitting exams. "Kitto katsu" sounds very similar to the translation for 'You will surely win' in Japanese.
Unconventional Kit Kat flavours among the 300 available in Japan include green tea, wasabi, purple sweet potato, sake, melon and even 'cough medicine'.
