"Kit Kat is known around the world for its inventive flavors,” senior brand manager Christopher Kinnard said in a press release. “Our fans in the U.S. have been requesting new Kit Kat flavors and we're excited to share we are adding to the Kit Kat family with the launch of Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate."

The classic layered wafer and chocolate treat will combine the two iconic flavors with a mint creme on the top and dark chocolate on the bottom.

Snack and candy bloggers did additional digging to uncover a first look at the new candy.

The user told "GMA" that he used to work as a receiving manager for Food Basics and obtained the photo through a friend, who works as a warehouse manager and distributes products to markets.

This marks the first new year-round Kit Kat flavor to hit the U.S. market in nearly 10 years, but it won't be available until December.

To Kinnard's point, the U.S. is playing catch up with their international market that has included flavors like green tea, tiramisu and strawberry cheesecake.

"Here’s the best part — we are just getting started. Keep your eyes peeled; there is more to come," Kinnard added.
