If you’ve given up candy for Lent, there is a new sweet reward waiting for you on the other side.

To gear up for Easter, Hershey’s has announced a new flavor of Kisses that we are hoping to count toward our daily vegetable intake: Carrot Cake.

The new flavor, available exclusively at Walmart, is certainly one of the more intriguing seasonal treats we’ve seen recently — though Strawberry Shortcake M&Ms are up there, too.

Obviously a vegetable-flavored dessert that may or may not actually contain actual vegetables could be controversial to both chocolate purists and health nuts alike, but we’re willing to give them a try…for the sake of having a fair and balanced opinion.

So, what do you think? Could carrot cake become the spring equivalent of pumpkin spice? Sound off in the comments.
