There's not much that can beat the light chocolaty crispiness of classic Kit Kats, but Nestle might just be about to outdo itself.
Indeed, friends, the classic wafer candy is getting a very exciting upgrade! On July 25, something beautiful indeed will be available for purchase: a Kit Kat filled with cakey goodness!
Described as a "cake-style Kit Kat" in a Nestle press release, this handsome dessert looks like a regular Kit Kat, except it has a thick chunk of gateau wedged between the layers of chocolate, according to Delish. Regard:
Looks tasty, doesn't it?
There are a wide variety of Kit Kat flavors out there, from borderline genius to downright bizarre and everything in between -- pear, soybean, green tea and wasabi flavors, to name a few. But this one really looks exquisite.
It costs around $13 for a three-pack and double that for a six-pack, which might be a little steep for Kit Kats, but can you really say it isn't worth it?
Sadly, at the moment you can only pick up these tasty morsels at Kit Kat's flagship Chocolatory store in the Ginza district of Tokyo, Japan, but I'm hoping it gets some widespread distribution sometime in the near future.
At the store, which is celebrating its re-opening, you can also pick up some neat menu items like Kit Kat parfaits, dry ice-chilled Kit Kat bars and ice-cream filled, matcha-topped wafers.
If you're craving a delicious harmony of moist cake and crispy Kit Kats, the good news is that you can always make yourself a luscious Kit Kat cake from scratch while you wait for the tasty release.

If you're a real fiend and want to make it even more Kit Kat-heavy, you can also add a sheet of the candy between the two layers of cake.
I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that this one makes it to the U.S. sometime soon.
