In the UK KitKats (chocolate covered wafer bars) are advertised with the above slogan, followed by an image of a KitKat being snapped in half. A play on words — having a break (a pause) in carrying out some task e.g. work, should be associated with consuming a KitKat. However you must use the right "break" or "brake", which is in fact on the left in a car.
The schools have broken up and you are going on your annual holiday. You are driving into the countryside for a well earned break. You are not breaking the speed limit but your wife tells you to slow down. So you slow down by braking. You then hear a strange noise coming from the car. You decide to stop and brake again and bring the car to a halt. To be safe you apply the handbrake. There is something seriously wrong with the car in fact it has broken down. You have to call a breakdown truck. When it arrives the mechanic tells you that the car will cost a lot of money to fix. Your wife says that if you had not been going so fast and had braked earlier, the car would not have broken down. It would not be going to cost a fortune to mend and you would not be broke.
The verb "break" means to snap or damage something e.g. to break a leg. The past simple is broke e. g. yesterday I broke my leg. The past participle is broken e.g. the car has broken down.
The noun "break" means a pause, interval or holiday. As an adjective it means something that is damaged or has ceased to work e.g. a broken window.
"To brake" means to apply the brake in a vehicle to slow or stop it. The past simple is braked e.g. as I entered the bend I braked hard and skidded off the road.
