Nestle Creates Milk-Free Vegan Version Of The Iconic KitKat Bar.
HAVE a Break?, Have a KitKat V!
NESTLE, the Swiss multinational food and drink processing conglomerate, has announced the development of a new milk-free vegan version of it’s iconic KitKat bar.
Switzerland’s Nestle would not reveal the exact formula for the new treat to be known as the KitKat V but said it would “soon have a delicious plant-based option that delivers the perfect balance between crispy wafer and smooth chocolate that people know and love.”
The company said it already has launched a range of products using plant-based alternatives to dairy made from rice, oat, soy, coconut, pea and almonds that are found in its non-dairy ice cream, coffee creamers and other products.
The KitKat V, which it said will be launched later this year in “several countries across the globe,” is certified vegan and uses 100% sustainable cocoa, the company said.
As the product is tested it will only be available in the company’s boutique KitKat Chocolatory shops or online, and through select retailers. It will be available in Britain, where the KitKat was originally developed in York — and where the research on the vegan version was done — but not in the U.S. where the KitKat is produced under a licensing agreement with Hershey’s, the company said.
Nestle said it is not releasing information at the moment on other countries participating in the initial roll-out.
