Many feel that mint and chocolate are as perfectly paired as peanut butter and jelly or rock and roll. If you feel that way, you’re in luck – this iconic flavour pairing is soon coming to Kit Kats in the US.

Hershey’s is releasing a Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate bar in the US this year and it looks like a match made in wafer heaven.

According to Hershey, the candy bar will feature “a mint crème on the top and dark chocolate on the bottom, all surrounding light and crispy wafers.”

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a few more months to break off a piece of this particular Kit Kat variety

The new flavour won’t be in stores until this December. But, in the official press release, Hershey hinted that some people will have the opportunity to taste the new bar in the coming weeks.

Fortunately, when the bar does arrive, it will become a permanent addition to the Kit Kat lineup, making it the first new year-round flavour in almost a decade.

Though many flavours of Kit Kats (including a mint-flavored one), have been sold in Japan for years, they typically have not been available in the US.

But in recent years, the candy bar has been expanding its unique offerings to even more countries.

The brand launched “millennial-pink Kit Kats” in the UK, Japan, and South Korea in 2018 and debuted Red Velvet Kit Kats in the US for Valentine’s Day 2019.

Its new releases go beyond candy-bar flavours, too. Earlier this year, the brand launched Kit Kat Drumsticks, a combination of ice cream and chocolate wafers.
