There are so many different types of KitKats on the market: Nutella KitKats, Biscoff KitKats, Rose Gold KitKats and even Zebra KitKats!? But one thing there’s never been is a vegan KitKat. Until now, that is!

Nestlé has just announced that it is launching vegan KitKats and all our plant-based dreams are coming true!

Arriving in the UK this year, KitKat V (woah – sounds like a Bond villain, or something…) features smooth chocolate blended with plant-based ingredients to perfectly balance the brand’s trademark crisp wafer.

KitKat V was developed by chocolatiers and food scientists in Nestlé’s Research and Development centre in York: the original home of KitKat. The team worked hard to design a vegan alternative that would live up to the high expectations of KitKat lovers everywhere.

Louise Barrett, Head of the Nestlé Confectionery Product Technology Centre in York said in a press release: “Taste was a priority when developing the plant-based chocolate for our new vegan KitKat. We used our expertise in ingredients, together with a test and learn approach, to create a delicious vegan choice for KitKat fans.”

And Nestlé Confectionery's Marketing Director, Alex Gonnella, added: “We have seen an incredible response to our vegan friendly Fruit Pastilles since their launch last year, so we know how much people want to enjoy alternative versions of their favourite treats.

“The most common request 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 more people to try it; we think it tastes amazing!”

So, unfortunately, we don’t have an exact release date for the vegan KitKat, but as soon as we hear, you’ll be the first to know – we give you our word.
