LONDON (CNN) –KitKats are getting fancy.

Swiss chocolate giant Nestlé has announced a luxury, handcrafted version of the popular chocolate bar for the United Kingdom, in time for the Christmas season.
The opulent eight-finger bar allows customers to choose from 1,500 flavor combinations, and also features personalized packaging.
The new “KitKat Chocolatory” creation isn’t exactly a cheap thrill, though — each bar will set you back $17.
As well as mixing and matching flavors, customers will be able to opt for British classics like Eton Mess, Cherry Bakewell and Earl Grey.
