Dash or no dash?

MMDE: Kit-Kat

Current: Kit Kat

Few people realise the name name "Kit Kat" or "Kit Cat" for a type of food goes back to the 18th century, when mutton pies known as a Kit-Kat were served at meetings of the political Kit-Cat Club in London.

It seems the popular chocolate bar took its name from this, which definitely had a dash in when used by the Kit-Cat club. Those experiencing the Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect say they too remember the dash in the chocolate snack's name years ago, but today it has none and no references to the version with the dash ever existing can be found.
