Kit Kat Is Debuting New A Birthday Cake Flavor

From Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate to Sweet Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie, The Hershey Company is no stranger to making some pretty unforgettable Kit Kat flavors.

Kit Kat’s latest makeover, however, is unlike any you’ve ever seen because they now have something never before included in the candy: sprinkles!

The new limited-edition Kit Kat Birthday Cake is made with the same crisp wafers you’ll find in regular KitKats, all covered in white crème. But this new flavor is also accented with a colorful assortment of sprinkles. It marks the first time a Kit Kat bar will include sprinkles or any added elements to the bar’s coating.

The Birthday Cake Kit Kats will hit store shelves nationwide in April, but will only be around for a limited time, so make sure you stock up early.

“Kit Kat Brand takes flavor seriously and aims to deliver for our fans who are just as passionate about the endless flavor possibilities,” Justin Kukura, senior manager chocolate product development at The Hershey Company, said in a press release. “Kit Kat Birthday Cake delivers on the universal love of the layers of birthday cake flavor and aroma of frosting perfectly paired with the surprise crunch of sprinkles.”

Take an up-close look at the colorful sprinkles, which appear reminiscent of Funfetti:


Hershey’s says the Birthday Cake flavor is just a taste of what’s to come this year for Kit Kat. The brand has already released two new flavors in 2020: Raspberry + Crème for Valentine’s Day and Lemon Crisp, which sounds perfect for spring or any Easter baskets you may be making.

“Kit Kat as a brand is internationally recognized for its inventive flavors,” Susanne Prucha, marketing director, Kit Kat, said in the press release. “Our U.S. Kit Kat lovers have continued to voice a longing for new and imaginative flavors and that’s exactly what we’re giving them in 2020. We’ve kicked off the year with not one, but three new flavor innovations and can’t wait to announce what else we have in store!”

Birthday cake flavor is having a moment. If you can’t get enough of it, you can definitely find store items incorporating the combination (usually) of vanilla with sprinkles. For example, Cool Whip released a birthday cake whipped topping last year and it’s at Walmart.

Or, whip up something in your own kitchen! The blog Together As Family has a great recipe for Funfetti cake batter cookie bars, for example. You could also try making some birthday cake croissants.

Will you be testing out the new Birthday Cake or Lemon Crisp Kit Kats? What flavor would you like to see Kit Kat make next?
