It was just a few months ago that we heard the rumors that Hershey’s would be releasing a Kit Kat Key Lime Pie bar. Naturally, we were excited at the prospect of it being true, and now we have official word that it is! Not only that, but it’s coming out this spring for all to enjoy.
The classic crispy wafers are covered in a key lime pie crème, so you get the crunch you know and love with the taste of pie. It sounds ideal for the springtime, but we’re going to have to let our taste buds do the testing on this one.
The Kit Kat Key Lime Pie will be on shelves this spring for a limited time, a PR rep confirmed to Best Products. While we don’t know the exact time it’ll be available, we do know that it’ll be at retailers nationwide in 1.5-ounce standard bars for a suggested retail price of $1.09.
We’ve had some tasty limited-edition bars before, but we’re loving this pie theme. There have been pumpkin pie and apple pie flavors, and according to the brand teasing us at the end of 2019, there could be more on the way.

The Hershey’s Kit Kat team must be working 24/7, because we feel like there’s a new reported flavor every week — not that we’re complaining. We knew that Kit Kat was venturing into more pie-inspired flavors this year, but Key Lime Pie wasn’t on the list of teasers. Still, it appears that that’s one of the new bars hitting shelves in 2021 for a limited time.
We have Instagram account @candyfunhouse to thank for breaking this huge news. Best Products reached out to the account and found out the information and image was obtained through a supplier, so it appears to be pretty official that the candy is making its way onto shelves in the spring.
As detailed on the packaging (which may or may not be the final design), the limited-edition Kit Kat Key Lime Pie consists of “crisp wafers in key lime pie flavored crème.” A typical key lime pie is made with a graham cracker crust, fluffy lime filling, and whipped topping, so we’re hoping that this light green Kit Kat bar gives us more depth than just the lime element.
The Kit Kat Key Lime Pie bar will be making its way to stores in April 2021, according to the supplier. It seems like the perfect time of year to get that fresh, fruity taste. Citrus flavors may not be your first choice when it comes to a Kit Kat flavor, but remember the Lemon Crisp variety that dropped first thing in 2020? Based off of that alone, we have faith that the Key Lime Pie will be just as good.
