In the Chinese culture, the Year of the Rabbit is very auspicious as those born under this zodiac sign are known to be peaceful, jovial and love being around others. Such traits encapsulate the Chinese New Year spirit as well as KitKat®’s iconic slogan, “Have a break, Have a KitKat®” to create meaningful moments of love, togetherness and breaks with friends and family during the holiday season.

Speaking at the campaign launch today, Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad explained that “Share The Love, Share The Golden Break” campaign aims to connect people by sharing a KitKat® moment together. “Finding a meaningful gift is always a challenge for many during the festive season. Chocolate is proven to induce happy moods, so KitKat® constantly innovates its chocolates into attractive and convenient gift sets so that everyone can look forward to the Lunar New Year in a fun and tasty way with loved ones,” enthused Juan.
