Sweet! Hershey's introduces its newest flavor in 20 years

Hershey's, the century-old chocolate giant that we all know and love, is going for the gold. They're releasing their newest candy bar flavor in 20 years, and damn, does it look good.

Introducing: Hershey's Gold Caramelized Crème. (Wipe that drool off your chin.) The fourth edition to the brand's lineup isn't *actually* chocolate—it's a creamy, caramelized base that's packed with bits of pretzels and peanuts.

According to the brand, the base starts as a white crème and is cooked until it develops its rich, golden hue. Sweet and salty? We whole-heartedly approve.

The candy will hit shelves on December 1, marking the 100-day countdown to the 2018 Winter Olympics. We see a shiny, ahem, gold medal in its future.
