Chocolate giant Hershey has announced that it will release vegan Reese’s peanut butter cups nationally by the end of this month! The long-awaited treat is made with oats instead of dairy and is formulated to taste like traditional milk chocolate. 

Hershey is known for its Reese’s chocolate, Hershey bars, Kisses, and many other familiar candies. On top of creating exciting vegan Reese’s peanut butter cups, the company also plans to release a plant-based chocolate Hershey bar with almonds and sea salt this April. Teal Liu, brand manager of Better For You at Hershey, said in a statement, “We are excited to introduce these delicious, plant-based options.”

You don’t have to wait for Hershey to get your hands on delicious vegan peanut butter cups! Plenty of other tasty animal-free versions are already available in the market. Here are three of our favorites:
