The company announced the new Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate flavor. The new bars are set to launch nationwide this winter, the company announced in a release.

“Kit Kat is known around the world for its inventive flavors,” senior brand manager Christopher Kinnard said. “Our fans in the U.S. have been requesting new Kit Kat flavors and we’re excited to share we are adding to the Kit Kat family with the launch of Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate. But here’s the best part – we are just getting started. Keep your eyes peeled; there is more to come from the Kit Kat brand.”

The new candy features a mashup of two iconic flavors: Mint and dark chocolate. There’s a mint crème on the top and dark chocolate on the bottom, all surrounding light and crispy wafers.

Sounds like candy lovers can expect a new minty treat this holiday season.

While we don’t have an exact release date yet, the company says Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate will be available nationwide in December 2019.
