Hershey rolls out first chocolates free of artificial ingredients
The Hershey Company has released milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses and bars made with simpler ingredients and free of artificial flavors. These are some of the first products from the company to transition to using simpler ingredients, a commitment the Hershey announced in February 2015.
“We started making our great-tasting chocolate in 1894 with ingredients you might find in your pantry, like cocoa, milk, sugar and vanilla, and we’re continuing that tradition today,” said Mary-Ann Somers, vice president and general manager of US confection, The Hershey Company. “People want to see ingredients that they know and are familiar with in their foods and we’re listening.”
