It’s a deliciously unexpected flavor adventure in 35 percent Milk Chocolate and 65 percent Dark Chocolate. Available August 2008.
  • Jolly Rancher® Doubles – A new twist on Jolly Ranchers, Jolly Rancher Doubles combines two bold Jolly Rancher flavors. Combinations include: Cherry-Orange, Grape-Apple and Blue Raspberry-Watermelon. Now available.

    I saw something exciting on Hershey Insider – that the Raspberry Meltaway Bliss is already available at Target.

    http://civellophoto.typepad.com/hersheyinsider/2008/04/a-bowl-of-bliss.html

    Did you get to sample the Reese’s Clusters at the Expo? I’m curious how they are.

    Finally, the Good n’ Firey sounds awesome – especially since they did such a good job on the Twizzlers Fire.

    ok, i love you guys. and i respect you despite your enjoyment of hershey’s chocolate. but what happened here? it reads like hershey’s bought ad space. are you just sharing their blurbs about the candies because they are nicely-written and it makes a good sound bite before your actual reviews?

    That’s odd that they say the new raspberry meltaway center Hershey’s Bliss chocolates will be out in 12/08…I bought a bag 2 weeks ago at Target. Can’t wait to try those Reese’s clusters!! Thanks for the list of tasty treats to come! :-)

    @oakling Just sharing the upcoming news about what’s coming. We’ll have real reviews soon. Just trying to keep you all up on the latest candy news. Notice our tagline “Candy NEWS, views, and reviews.” :)

    Love them or hate them, Hershey is a big player in the candy world.

    Lots of interesting Hershey’s products coming this year!

    I see Cybele and others have already mentioned the Raspberry Meltaway Bliss that’s exclusive to Target, but there’s also a Milk Chocolate Almond Bliss, a Wal-Mart exclusive:

    And I know there’s a Creme de Menthe version of Bliss that’s either available now or very soon, too. But at my last check of the Hershey Co. web site, only three Bliss varieties were “officially” acknowledged.

    The Jolly Ranchers doubles sound good. Too bad they got rid of the lemon flavor, though. I always liked to combine the flavors and I thought the best combos were:

    Lemon & Cherry
    Apple & Cherry
    Grape & Watermelon

    And Lemon & Cherry was the best!

    The Jolly Rancher Doubles are great!! I am a frequent traveler and actually saw them for the first time at an airport store and bought them for the plane. All three doubles flavors were great, but my favorite was the blue raspberry and watermelon. They are very flavorful and you get a lot of them in a bag. I would definitely recommend that everyone try a bag!

    I’m lucky enough to work with a woman who’s husband works for Hershey. She often brings in samples to share with us. I’ve had the Ice Breakers Burn Peach Mango Fusion mints for about two weeks now. They are really good. I normally wouldn’t gravitate toward anything peach-mango flavored (not even peaches and/or mangos!) but these are surprisingly tasty. I also like the fact that a serving (3 mints) has 10% Thiamin, Niacin, B5 and B6. I haven’t seen then for sale yet, but they should be out there very soon!

    [...] Addict insiders that its expected rollout date is December of 2008 (along with quite a few other candies Hershey’s is introducing in ‘08), so scooch up to the edge of your seat and be on the lookout… in 5 [...]

    How could anyone NOT love Hershey’s??? If you take a little time and read about the Milton Hershey School and all of the wonderful things The Hershey Company does for the good of the people, you can’t help but LOVE the company!!
