Nestle’s new vegan KitKat is now available on UK shelves. The vegan treat is made with rice-based milk alternative to milk chocolate. Chocolate fans are thrilled with the new launch.

The treat will be available in the United Kingdom, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania first, with Brazil and Australia following soon. The KitKat V is certified vegan and like other KitKats, is made from 100% sustainable cocoa, sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan in conjunction with the Rainforest Alliance.

Alexander von Maillot, head of confectionery at Nestle, said, “KitKat continues to surprise people with new flavours and ingredients. One of the most common requests we see on social media is for a vegan KitKat, so we’re delighted to be able to make that wish come true. This is for everyone who wants a little more plant-based in their life when they treat themselves.”
