For chocolate lovers out there, there’s going to be a new kind of Reese’s Cups on the market soon.

Hershey(HSY), which makes the candy, has been hinting at putting Reese’s Pieces into its iconic Reese’s Cups candy, as reported by Eater.

Interestingly, news of the candy comes as Hershey announced that it’s buying healthy chocolate brand barkTHINS in April, according to Fortune.

The company used Facebook to tease the upcoming product, writing “Where did all the Pieces go? ‪#‎Cupfusion‬.” The post went up 20 hours ago and already has over 1,800 likes.

“We’re always here for you, even in those times of #Cupfusion. Trust us, it will be worth the wait,” the brand wrote to a user on the social media site.

Here’s the Facebook post, which can be found here.
