There are several reasons to get excited about summer quickly approaching, but M&M’s newest creation might just top the list.

On Wednesday, Mars announced Orange Vanilla Cream M&M’s will be hitting store shelves on April 30. The new flavor will be available for a limited time exclusively at Dollar General stores, and for every bag sold, the brand will donate $1 (up to $20,000) to benefit the Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s investments in family literacy.

The addition to their already extensive line-up is engineered to taste just like the classic orange Creamsicle you’d get from an ice cream truck. But this isn’t the first time M&M’s released an ice cream-inspired flavor. In February they debuted a Neapolitan edition, which played off the popular strawberry, vanilla and chocolate ice cream combo.
