If you love mint and dark chocolate, then Kit Kat’s alleged new flavor might be your next favorite snack.
In an Instagram post last April 14th, foodie Markie Devo revealed that Hershey’s is releasing the first new Kit Kat flavor in the United States in several years. Called Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate, this wafer bar appears to have a mint créme coating on top and a dark chocolate coating on the bottom. Though each bar also has layers of chocolate inside, it’s unclear whether these are dark chocolate or milk chocolate.
According to Devo’s post, these new Kit Kat bars will hit the shelves this December, which actually makes sense as this is traditionally the month when snack and confectionery brands roll out their mint-flavored treats for the holidays.

Though Hershey’s hasn’t confirmed the new Kit Kat flavor yet, lots of fans can’t wait to get a taste of the new treat. After all, the United States only has very limited Kit Kat flavors to choose from. At present, the country’s Kit Kat flavor selection only includes original, strawberry, white, and dark chocolate.
Meanwhile, outside the United States, Kit Kats are available in a wide variety of flavors. For instance, to commemorate the 45th anniversary of Kit Kat’s arrival in Japan last year, Nestlé released a special box containing 35 different flavors, including strawberry tiramisu, passion fruit, raspberry, strawberry maple, purple sweet potato, adzuki red bean paste sandwich, and tamaruya honten wasabi, among many others.
