Nestle, the company that makes KitKats, will be coming out with an all-new vegan KitKat.
In Nestle’s news release, Alexander von Maillot, Head of Confectionery at Nestlé is submitting to social media’s requests of coming out with a vegan KitKat.
“One of the most common requests we see on social media is for a vegan KitKat, so we’re delighted to be able to make that wish come true. I can’t wait for people to be able to try this amazingly tasty new KitKat. This is a product for everyone who wants a little more plant-based in their life!”
Alexander von Maillot of Nestle
This new KitKat will be called the KitKat V and will be launched in several countries … not including the U.S.
Unfortunately, folks in the U.S. won’t be able to try the new KitKat V per Hershey’s licensing agreement.
Surveys show Nestle that there is a demand for more plant-based alternatives. For now, this release will serve as further testing to gather data that will drive a wider rollout plan.
