LA-based shop Sweet Hollywood carries a range of novelty candies and chocolate bars inspired by characters like Hellboy and Lobster Johnson. Now, joining the ranks of these superheroes is a candy bar honoring the legendary drag queen RuPaul.

The bar’s ingredients include: milk chocolate, sea salt and peanut butter, the last of which seems to be a subtle nod to one of RuPaul’s non-album singles of the same name from last year. A portion of the proceeds from the chocolate bar sales will go towards the Jeff Griffith Youth Center in Los Angeles, which provides support to LGBT youth.

As of now, the chocolates are only available for pre-order, but they are set to ship out on April 1st. Some interested fans were quick to question Sweet Hollywood if it’s all just an April Fool’s Day prank, but in a tweet, it was confirmed that the RuPaul-inspired candy bar is definitely no joke.
