Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts, Nestlé has finally unveiled a vegan alternative of their perfect KitKat bar, set to land in Australia this July.
The KitKat V was developed by chocolatiers and food scientists in the UK, and rolled out there earlier this year. Using a rice-based milk alternative instead of dairy.
“Our challenge when we set out to create a vegan-friendly KitKat was to recreate this iconic product using plant-based alternatives,” Louise Barrett, Head of the Nestlé Confectionery Product Technology Center in York, said in a statement.
“To achieve this, we worked very hard to get the right balance between the milk alternative and the cocoa. The result is a vegan chocolate that we’re very proud of, and I hope all KitKat fans will love it as much as we do.”
The KitKat V is available for pre-order from the KitKat Chocolatory website right! now! and is set to arrive at Woolworths Metro stores internationally from July 26th. A serving of this little taste of heaven will set you back $2.

The hallowed KitKat is the latest Nestlé delicacy to cop the vegan treatment. Last March, the brand unveiled its vegan take on the beloved malt drink Milo.
