More great news for chocolate lovers! This week Hershey announces its first new candy bar since 1995.  Check out the breaking news from CNN Money:

 Since 1900, just three candy bars have carried the Hershey name. Now there’s a fourth.

Meet Hershey’s Gold, the first new Hershey bar since the chocolatier debuted the Cookies ‘n Creme variety in 1995. The original milk chocolate Hershey’s bar first went on sale in 1900. Hershey’s Special Dark debuted in 1939.

Hershey’s Gold is a “caramelized creme” bar with pretzels and peanuts baked inside. Notice the missing ingredient? Yeah … there’s no chocolate in this Hershey’s bar.


This has been a great week for chocolate lovers: the discovery of ruby chocolate, and now a new Hershey’s chocolate product!  Yeah!

You can learn more about Hershey’s Gold on CNN Money and on Hershey’s website.
