Have you ever bitten into a Hershey’s Kit Kat and thought, “Wow, I wish this were thinner?” Probably not, but maybe now you will, because that is reportedly a new treat coming to shelves in 2021.

Instagram account @candyhunting posted a picture of the alleged new candy, thanks to @candyfunhouse. As seen on the packaging, the Kit Kat Thins look like original Kit Kats, but (you guessed it) thinner. Why would someone want to eat a thinner piece of candy? Maybe for the crunch factor, or maybe they’re trying not to eat so many sweets, or maybe they just want to, and that’s enough of a reason!

“New Kit Kat Thins are expected to launch in March 2021 in the US! These have two wafers in the center rather than the traditional three,” the caption reads.

There’s no word as to whether the Kit Kat Thins will only be available in individually wrapped Share bags, or if they’ll also be regular bars. However, if it is true that we only have to wait until March to get our hands on them, we’re feeling pretty lucky.

Kit Kat isn’t the first Hershey’s brand to introduce a thinner version. You might remember that in 2019, Reese’s Thins hit the market in the classic milk chocolate and peanut butter combination. Since then, they’ve also been released in dark chocolate and white crème varieties. Also, in February 2020, Hershey’s York Thins were unveiled as a 36% thinner option to the original.
