The delicious chocolate treats are a twist on the classic Smarties style and will come in splashtastic hues of pink and yellow - let's be honest, they're the best colours.
The special editions have proved hugely popular with Smarties fans in the past and the Mermaid Edition follows hot on the heels of their Unicorn and Llama-themed offerings.
Nestlé has also seen success with products made up of purely orange Smarties as well as seasonal editions like 'Scaries' for Halloween and an Easter egg version of the popular Unicorn addition, which was launched in March.
Speaking about the mermazing edition, Lucy Fawcett, Assistant Brand Manager for Smarties, said: "We know how much people love these packs and, with mermaids being increasingly on trend, it was a no-brainer for this to be our next limited edition for Smarties.
"Of course, it doesn't matter at all if Mermaids aren't your thing, it's still the great taste of Smarties inside the pack."
Smarties Mermaid Edition is the latest in a busy year of new product launches for Nestlé confectionery.
In March, the company introduced Milkybar Mix Ups, a range of filled milk and white chocolate buttons marking the first time that milk chocolate has ever been used for the original Milkybar brand.
More recently, a roster of new jelly choices were added to the Rowntree's Randoms range including squish'ems, foamies and sours.
