Candy is dandy for The Hershey Co., which on Thursday said it is launching a soft caramel creme candy that is its first new brand in the United States in 30 years. The candy, named Lancaster, will be available in January and come in three flavors -- caramel, vanilla and caramel, and vanilla and raspberry. Its name comes from the company's history. Founder Milton Hershey's original confection company was called the Lancaster Caramel Co.
Hershey, the biggest chocolate maker in North America, makes popular sweets such as Hershey's Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Almond Joy, Good & Plenty, Kit Kat wafers, Milk Duds, Heath toffee bars, Twizzlers and Jolly Rancher hard candy.
Nothing takes the place of Hershey Kisses! (And Kit Kats are pretty good too!)
