US: Hershey extends 'Drops' range
US confectioner Hershey has extended its Drops range with the launch of two additional varieties.
The new confectionery is a "snackable version" of its existing Drops products and uses Hershey's "classic" flavours. The product is available in two variants: Hershey's Milk Chocolate Drops and Hershey's Cookies 'n' Crème Drops.
"Hershey's Milk Chocolate and Cookies 'n' Creme are two of The Hershey Company's most popular flavours," said Anna Lingeris, a Hershey spokesperson.
Hershey's Drops will be sold in 8oz resealable, stand-up pouches. Hershey's Milk Chocolate Drops will also come in king size 2.1oz packs. The products are available at mass, grocery, drug and convenience stores.
