A vegan version of Nestle’s KitKat is coming soon for sweet-lovers searching for a dairy elective, the organization reported on its website Tuesday. The elective chocolate is scheduled to hit shelves in the U.K. this year.
The new vegan KitKat, called KitKat V, is affirmed vegan and produced using 100% sustainable cocoa; in any case, the brand didn’t uncover precisely the thing it was subbing in for the non-fat milk utilized in its traditional milk chocolate bars. The organization has utilized rice, oat, soy, coconut, pea and almonds for its other plant-based offerings; Bloomberg is revealing that this specific KitKat will utilize a rice-based milk substitute.
KitKat V was made in the U.K., where Nestlé’s confectionery scientists meant to make a vegan version of its famous sweet that would “live up to the high expectations of KitKat lovers everywhere.”
This isn’t the organization’s initial attack into the plant-based market, either. Nestle has non-dairy ice cream, coffee creamers, rice-and-oat-based beverages and non-dairy cheese across its food portfolio, notwithstanding its plant-based burgers.
The new KitKat V bars will be turned out in Britain to begin. KitKat, then, is created under the permit of Hershey in the United States — and not Nestle — so it’s as yet unsure when, or if, the U.S. will get a taste at any point in the near future.
