Larry Page Receives His Android Kit Kat Bar, Breaks Us Off a Piece

Larry Page Kit Kat

It must be nice being Larry Page, receiving everything first, way before the general public. Not only will Larry probably be running Android 4.4 Kit Kat on his phone before any of us, but it appears that Kit Kat went ahead and sent him his very own Android Kit Kat bar. Needless to say, we are jelly.

Enjoy it, Larry.

  • Jose Torres

    I WANT ONE OF THOSE RIGHT NOW!

  • Matthew Hughes

    I have one of these…

  • Wagner

    They got one thing right, Android is just candy.

  • Wagner

    Chocolate for the iOS rip off artist.

  • Wagner

    Ah the rewards for ripping off the iOS operating system. Jobs was right, Page is not just evil, he is the devil.

  • Chocoholic

    Despite its awesomeness, I would eat that Andy so fast…

  • Tyler Casilio

    “We are jelly” you mean jelly bean? Huh huh…Get it….cuz…cuz we all have jelly bean on our phones…yeahhhh lol That’s awesome. I want one!

  • Timothy McGovern

    “Needless to say, we are jelly.”

    This was genius

  • Anonymoose

    I’ve had two realizations.
    First, as Kit Kats are meant to be enjoyed in pieces, maybe android will embrace fragmentation (kidding) or sharing content (probably a stretch).
    Second, I’ve never had such a craving for a Kit Kat bar until 4.4 was unveiled earlier this week.

  • dannyWHITE

    “we are jelly”, as to say we are 4.1 while he’s 4.4 =)

  • Joseph Pojunis

    I know Nilay Pittel from The Verge received one as well. I assumed you guys did, too.

  • EC8CH

    But do the arms and legs have crispy waffers on the inside or are they just solid milk chocoate???

    I need to know!

    • Stewie

      I initially thought no, easier to remove bars from the main line and add the arms legs and head, but at the same time they still have to make the chocolate molds for those as well, might as well toss the wafers in there too …. right?

  • strows

    I wounder if the head, arms and legs have cookie in them or are they solid chocolate.

  • Nicktrance

    What would you do if you had one though? if you eat it you ruin the collectable, if you don’t it will eventually go bad…

    • chris420o

      buy 2

    • Higher_Ground

      I’ve personally never had chocolate go bad. I’ve had easter and halloween candy that was a few years old and nobody could tell the difference. I suppose the milkier you get, the more perishable, but I’ve yet to have it be a problem :) The cookie on the inside might be a different story.

    • Stewie

      F – R – E – E – Z – E I – T

    • Philip A. Kaiser

      Eat it. Sometimes you gotta break open that package and just enjoy the rarity of enjoying something so exclusive versus staring at it.

      • Philip A. Kaiser

        Like taking an excellent filet mignion and grinding it onto hamburger and eating it medium rare on a bun. Some will tell you its a wqste … Until you have one. Totally worth a $15 hamburger. Melts in your mouth.

  • Peter Mansour

    even thought this tasets exctly like a normal kit kat, i want one!

    • Mike Hilal

      Same here. I cannot understand why I want one so much…but I just do.

  • lesli_duval

    my roomate’s

      She sounds like a whore.

      • Gnex

        Aww that’s my line hahaha

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      is the virus discounted from what I’d get paid?

  • Steve B

    Looks tasty.

    Let it be buttery and smooth and without bugs.

  • AnotherAndroidKid

    I’d buy that.

  • CHRIS42060

    Gimme a break, gimme a break…….

  • Matt F.

    Too bad they take FOREVER to come out with these platforms for phones… Waiting on 4.3 here for Note 2…. JUST SAYIN!

    • SparkysShocker

      You don’t want 4.3 its all kinds of broken, unless you don’t use your phone as a phone then its great.

      • http://www.techmantis.net/ Minja Miketa

        4.3 works fine on my S3. Don’t see what’s so “broken”. The dialer is actually improved.

        • SparkysShocker

          Numerous Data issues across multiple devices.

          Edit: Unless that changed in the last week since swapping my Gnex for a Maxx

          • JoshGroff

            My G-Nex can’t hold 4G on 4.3, but then again, it could never hold 4G.

          • Philip A. Kaiser

            Mine has gotten much better using the CM nighlies. Much better!

          • JoshGroff

            I’ve been having problems with battery life on 4.3 with the hyperion 3800mah extended. (on both Shiny and CM10.2) And of course 4.2.2 has the Google services drain. Then again, it’s only my backup phone, so I haven’t cared much to find something stable.

          • Philip A. Kaiser

            I used to use an extended battery (Samsung one) and for whatever reason, I switched my battery one day back to stock and my battery life went up. There are a lot of these batteries that simply cycle out and lose their effectiveness.

            Toro radios can’t radio, but the processor makes for an excellent ear warmer.

          • JoshGroff

            I use my G-Nex as a hand warmer in the winter.

      • http://www.gorecording.com/ Nicholassss

        I’m rocking a 4.3 ROM on my Verizon note 2. And everything is awesome except I can’t get voicemail notifications and some time phone unexpectedly fails.

        Who makes phone calls anyway?

    • http://www.techmantis.net/ Minja Miketa

      That depends on the manufacterer and the carrier. The Nexus 4 has 4.3 so it isn’t Google’s fault.

    • Steve B

      Your fault for not buying a Google phone.

      • Tim242

        Or for not installing it himself.

        • Steve B

          Oh snap

    • Mike Hilal

      Skinned phone fail. Get a nexus or rom it…

    • MikeCiggy

      My note 2 is running 4.3 and LOVING IT

    4 years late with this post.

      You’re getting downvotes but it’s true, happened like two days ago lol

  • mcdonsco

    “It must be nice being Larry Page”

    Yes, being a double digit multi-billionaire would be nice

    • http://meatcastle.com/ Youre My Boy Bloo

      As a person who comes from money responses like these really hurt my feelings. People assume that just because my family has money, everything is super easy all the time. That is simply not true. I know firsthand that my father has stressful issues always going on. It is not easy making sure that both yachts are fully staffed all sailing season, and combine that with the pressure of routinely finding out that your favorite importer only has 4 cases of caviar when you need 6 for a party you are about to throw…

      It can be really hard sometimes. Please, guys, let’s try and be a little more compassionate for those that are suffering with privilege.

      • btod

        Ha! +1 for that!

      • JohanV

        I suffer too, but without money.. I want to suffer with money :|

  • bigmack0507

    must have taken the photo with a gs4

    • Tim242

      The S4 takes great pics.

      • bigmack0507

        i know lol

      • EdubE24

        In well lit areas.

        • Tim242

          The S4 has a night mode that takes great low light pics, much better than using the flash.

  • guestguest

    The pic / chocolate has a very magenta hue to it.
    Someone needs to fix their white balance.

    • sc4fpse

      This is Droid Life – that’s a feature, not a bug.

    • anezarati

      other blogs have said that the pic was taken with a moto x….you make of that whatever you want.

  • Jim890

    Hey Larry, gimme a break, gimme a break, break me off a piece o’ that, Kit Kat bar. :-P

  • Ian Smith

    honestly, that thing looks legitimately delicious.

      Steve go play in your own backyard we don’t do windows here. ;)

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    It’s not just for LP there will be a limited amount of these being sold

    • chris420o

      first*

    • Ian

      Umm…they said that in the post

    • CasperTFG

      Very unfortunate.

  • ddevito

    I think Larry deserves to have this Kit Kat Android candy bar, as well as enjoying 4.4 before all of us. I’d say he’s earned the right.

  • chris420o

    Looks great i want one…yet I’m still not a fan of the kitkat name…makes google and android feel cheap and commercial

    • aQuickBit

      But its “unexpected”!

    • mike

      I agree completely on the cheap and commercial

      • Philip A. Kaiser

        Just another qwirk from Google. Run a search on the M&M study they conducted in their offices. Not a joke, they spent quite a bit of time and money to research on their employees M&M eating patterns.

    • Tim242

      And none of the other silly names did. I mean, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean sound so sophisticated. /s

      • chris420o

        those are general desserts…not a commercial branded candy bar

        • Tim242

          Actually, this is the first time I’ve down voted you People sshouldn’t care about down votes. I think you meant must’ve, which is a contraction for must have. Must of? WoW. Regardless of whether it is a generic or commercial name, it sounds silly, cheesy, and cheap. Would it matter if they called it Dunkin Donuts, vs Donut? Besides, Ice Cream Sandwiches are called just that. The generic name is all you ever see. You just like to complain.

          • Give_Him_A_Break

            I think he’s getting at Google must have taken a lump sum of money to call it Kit Kat… as if they sold out. But, the other point is, why not? Google is an advertising company and this is advertising for Kit Kat. It’s not really any different than having pop-up ads in your apps… it’s actually better since it’s unintrusive. I’m sure they were paid a couple million to change it from Key Lime Pie to Kit Kat… but who cares.. I might be biased cause Kit Kats are probably my favorite.. :)

          • Tim242

            There was no money exchanged. It’s a simple cross promotion. Google and Nestle both said that absolutely no money changed hands. KitKats were my favorite before going Vegan haha

          • alex drum

            now your obvious attitude of not caring about any reason makes sense… vegan… ever have gum? wear shoes? own a car? own a house? being a REAL vegan is IMPOSSIBLE! what he was saying originally is that no version of android has been name branded till now. now that it has been name branded it feels pretty cheep/slimy/comercial

          • Tim242

            Ice Cream Sandwich was no better. When you go to the store to buy Ice Cream Sandwiches, that’s what you see printed on the boxes. As far as being Vegan, you have no clue what you are talking about. The main reasons for being Vegan are not consuming Animal products, and to prevent the torture and death of Animals. I do not consume animal products for both of those reasons. Meat and dairy are terribly unhealthy, and was not meant for human consumption. No other species consumes the milk of another. Milk is meant for fast development of calves, not humans. It is full of fat, puss, antibiotics, and hormones. Don’t get me started on meat. I do not wear lleather shoes, so yes, my shoes are Vegan. There are no animal products used in my truck, so it’s Vegan as well. Your ignorant statements show how clueless you are. It is very hard to completely avoid animal products, but I strive to every day. Vegans strive to cause the least amount of harm. Field rats get killed by farm equipment. There’s no dodging that.

          • zurginator

            Completely OT, but eh:
            I do agree on milk to an extent.
            Meat however is indeed intended to be consumed by humans – we definitely have canines.

            Paleo Diet ftw.

          • Tim242

            If meat were intended to be consumed by humans, we could eat it raw without getting sick or dying. True omnivores and carnivores have shorter intestines, which allow for the decaying meat to push through quicker. Plus, we chew side to side, not up and down like meat eaters.

          • alex drum

            seriously? do you not get the difference between a NAME BRAND or a food type? is the difference between Chinese food or panda express. one is a type of food the other is a NAME BRAND! seriously simple stuff! so you know leather is not the only thing is shoes with animal products! PLASTIC yes PLASTIC has animal products, as for your car i’m willing to bet it has plastic in it, also do you have tires on it? many tires have animal products in them. many furniture items and instruments are held together with glue made from animals! some fabric softeners, MANY shampoos, some toothpaste, gum, and sugar! if you want i could go on all day, literally the list goes on FOREVER! vegan as defined by a simple google search is “a person who does not eat or use animal products.” not “a person who tries not to eat or use animal products” or usually doesn’t use/eat. if you really think there are no animal products used in your truck… well i dont ever know what to say… vegan doesn’t mean not eating meat/milk and not wearing leather haha its so funny you think the only animal product that could be in your cloths/car is leather hahaha! you are the clueless one! and its not hard to avoid animal products its IMPOSSIBLE as i said before! if you really think we were supposed to only eat vegetation why dont we have specialized teeth for it? or how about how our stomach acids suggest that we consumed meat when we were evolving (i can further explain if you want, or just do a simple search for it). Also do you believe we evolved or were placed here as is and we didn’t evolve from animals… animals that like us eat meat. if dairy and meat was good enough for my evolutionary ancestors that made it through an ice age, faced monstrous wild creatures, famine, and many other events that most modern humans could not face… dairy and meat is definitely good enough for me. not saying i like artificial hormones, pesticides, and all that crap. also i think you might be confused… what you sated as your definition of a vegan is actually vegetarian… but even that is damn near impossible. also to prevent the deaths of animals you would ether have to 1 capture all of them and cage them and feed them a vegetarian diet (that alone would kill some) or 2 kill all of them and say it only counts after that moment… my point i’m getting to is that animals kill other animals. one last thing… the nutrients that re in mile are actually really good for you (in moderation..like everything) dont know where you are getting this nonsense that its bad for you from. ps please make some actually points that you really know about… if you’re just going to give me more of this “my truck doesn’t contain any animal byproducts” crap dont waste you time with a response saying things you obviously know nothing about. -thanks

          • Tim242

            There is so much flaw in everything you said. I am not going to waste my time responding to it all. Vegans do not eat meat, or dairy. We avoid all animal products possible. I use animal free bath products, and do not use leather. My husband is a chemist and says you are crazy to say that plastic is made from animalproducts. Regardless, my primary reason for being Vegan is for health. Meat and dairy are bad. They are full of saturated fats and cholesterol. It’s wonder so many people die of heart disease and stroke. Why do you think it is that docs take people off of meatwhen they have high blood pressure? As far as milk, the protein in milk has been shown to cause cancer and deplete calcium. There is more calcium and Vitamin D in Almond Milk. Cow’s milk is for…calves. See screenshot below. I’m not preaching at people for how they eat, why are you preaching at me? I know what is best for me.

          • michael arazan

            I wonder if Klondike bar would have gotten it if they offered more money?

            Seriously though, Google is a multi billion dollar business, KitKat offering google licensing for their name would only be several million or vice versa who ever is paying for the name to be there or KitKat doing it for free just because it’s free advertising for them.

            I think everyone would like to know how they came up with it being the name for 4.4. In the end I’d hope it’s a good story and it will probably leak out.
