Joining the likes of sweet seasonal releases like pumpkin pie Kit Kats is a brand-new Milky Way flavor that’s out of this world. While the classic candy bar already has a Simply Caramel flavor, the entirely new Salted Caramel is perfect for those who don’t like their caramel to be too sweet, but still a treat.
A Salty, Yet Sweet Treat
When it comes to fall flavors, pumpkin is the clear front runner, but salted caramel is up there as well (try this salted caramel mocha if you don’t believe us). Milky Way is making sure it’s on the map with the new release:
One look at the comment section above, or at their initial teaser post, shows we’re not the only ones ready to experience this salty-sweet release.
Where Can You Buy These Bars?
Fans of the nougat candy bar will have to hold out just a bit longer before getting their hands on the new treats. They’re expected to hit Walmart first in October 2019 before making their way into additional retailers in January 2020.
The new bars will be available in the 3.16-ounce “Share Size” starting in October, with singles (1.56 ounces) and Fun Size six-packs (3.38 ounces) coming later.
What Does It Taste Like?
Since they haven’t been released, eagle-eyed candy hunters haven’t found Salted Caramel Milky Ways on shelves quite yet, but we got to give them a try, and trust us—they’re as good as they sound. They’re the ideal blend of salty and sweet, with neither flavor overpowering the other. At first bite, the bar tastes like your run-of-the-mill Milky Way, but the longer you indulge, the tastier it gets. Salt sneaks into the flavor at the end, leaving an irresistible aftertaste that makes this bar a must-buy.
If you catch these at your local grocery store, make sure to snap up a few, because there’s no way this tasty treat will last long. Just can’t wait until October? Milky Way’s seasonal Caramel Apple release should do the trick to keep you satisfied in the meantime.
