This release heralds an exciting year of all-new confections.

Kit Kat is kicking off what promises to be an exciting new year of candy with the release of a brand-new flavor: Lemon Crisp. This confection doesn't have the candy's classic milk chocolate. It's been replaced with a lemony, fruity white creme coating for a punch of flavor to accentuate the crunch of the iconic wafer bars.

Sure, the classic milk chocolate Kit Kat still has its place. But you're going to find yourself craving the lighter, fruitier nosh once you have your first bar. Each bite is like digging into a piece of lemon meringue pie or a lemon bar. It will melt the winter doldrums away.

The new Kit Kats are available in both 7.5- and 9-ounce bags. The suggested retail price is $3.49, which is a bargain price for a piece of sweet, lemony dessert.

And the new flavor comes just in time for the spring and Easter seasons — that bright yellow color just screams sunshine and happiness as winter slips away. You can expect to begin seeing the candies, which are limited edition and won't stick around long, in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, you can enjoy other Kit Kat flavors, like the new Raspberry Crème (which is available at Target and Walmart in minis now) for Valentine's Day. And always classic, chocolate Kit Kat bars too!
