Chocoholics get ready - Cadbury has announced today it's releasing a new twist on a couple of Kiwi classics.

From the beginning of July you'll be able to purchase Perky Nana Lumps - bite-sized banana flavoured chews covered with a dark chocolate coating.

The limited-edition treat combines two New Zealand staples:  Pineapple Lumps and Perky Nana bars.

"Pineapple Lumps and Perky Nana are part of Kiwi culture. They continue to be some of the most popular and iconic lollies in New Zealand," says Cara Liebrock, country manager for Mondelez, Cadbury's new owner.

"What better way to pay tribute to these much-loved treats than through a limited-edition collaboration that combines these two products into one shareable pack."

It's not the first product makeover for Cadbury, but will hopefully go down better with fans than the new Roses packs released at Christmas, or the controversial halved Easter eggs this year.

Perky Nana Lumps will be available for a limited time from July 1.
