New version of Android really going to be called Kit Kat?

Google is all about ads. And it just made about the biggest advertising move possible in Android’s tooth-rotting naming scheme: The latest version of the mobile OS is not going to be called Key Lime Pie, as expected, but KitKat.

Yep. As in the chocolatey, wafery KitKat® bar.

John Lagerling, director of Android global partnerships, told the BBC that the chocolate-coated naming choice was not a “money-changing-hands kind of deal.” Apparently Google loves KitKats, and KitKat loves Google. As a Google spokesperson told BuzzFeed, “KitKat has been a favorite candy among the engineering team for some time, so for the K release, we asked if they’d be willing to lend the iconic candy bar to its name.”
