It goes together like peanut butter and jelly.

Hershey has announced it will be releasing a Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate, according to the Elite Daily. It looks like it could be a tasty match for candy fans everywhere.

The new product will be marketed nationally in December. It is described by Hershey’s as featuring “a mint creme on top and dark chocolate on the bottom, all surrounding light and crispy wafers.

And some consumers might get even luckier if they are in one of the areas where Hershey’s will test-market the product before the national release.

It will be the first new Kit-Kat flavor introduced in almost a decade. reports that the mint-flavored Kit-Kat has been sold in Japan for years.

Hershey’s has been aggressive as it attempts to spread the Kit-Kat brand. Millennial-pink Kit Kats were availabe in the United States last year. A Red Velvet variety was introduced on Valentine’s Day.

And it’s even spread beyond simple candy bars. The brand launched Kit Kat Drumstick ice cream bars earlier this year.
