Kit Kat lovers in the United States can finally enjoy the iconic chocolate wafer taste in their cereal bowl. 

After its successful launch in Europe earlier this year, General Mills confirmed that the cereal has now made its way to American shelves.

"Capturing the iconic balance of delicious milk chocolate and wafer taste, the new Kit Kat Cereal is the perfect way to have a break and indulge," the food giant told FOX Television Stations Friday. 

General Mills, the company behind many popular cereal brands, said the cereal squares will resemble mini Kit Kat bars with a creamy coating and crunch. 

Priced at $5.69, the Kit Kat cereal will be available nationwide starting in May. 

The company also announced a variety of new cereals and cereal-themed snacks to launch this spring.
