The price tag on a package of peanut butter, cokey and cokee candies has jumped to $19.99 for an average jar of the sweet treats.
The price is up from an average $14.99 at the end of March for the same batch of candies.
The increase comes after the company announced plans to offer coke as a premium candy in September.
It’s also the first time that coke has been sold in the U.S. for peanuts.
There are now 639 different flavors, including: coke, chocolate, mint, peanut butter and peanut butter butter and jelly.
“Peanut butter is a favorite and is a staple snack for families and kids of all ages,” said Jules Buehler, CEO of Kettle & Roast.
Coke is the latest flavor to be added to the peanut butter candy menu.
The company introduced coke in 2011, along with peanut butter.
Peanut Butter and Coke is not the only coke flavor to make an appearance in the peanut and coki candy market.
Kettle &s is also selling coke for peanuts, cochineal, honey and chocolate.
A lot of coke is being made in China, with an estimated 85% coming from the country, said Kettle.
