The Hershey Company has released the first new candy bar in more than 20 years that will be in stores on December 1. It is hard to believe that the new candy bar is not made of Chocolate. Instead, it is made of caramelized creme, salty peanuts, and pretzels. The new bar is called "Hershey's Gold."

About Hershey's Gold

Hershey's Gold will be the fourth bar for the company. Hershey's introduced its Cookies 'n' Creme bar in 1995, and another one has not been created until now. Hershey's original bar was way back in 1900, and it was another 39 years before the next bar was made, and it was the dark chocolate bar.

It is unbelievable that the world's largest chocolate manufacturer doesn't make chocolate bars more frequently. However, the 123-year-old company based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania keeps making candy that has stood the test of time instead of coming up with a new one every year or two.

Hershey's has made it clear that the new bar is not chocolate. However, it is just as delicious with the mixture of three ingredients of creme, peanuts, and pretzel. The color of the candy bar is pretty. It is actually gold like a real gold bar that gives the consumer the feeling of eating something really rich. The bar is made to be released in conjunction with the 100-day countdown to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang.

That's one reason is called Hershey's Gold.

Hershey's popular candies

Some people already know about the familiar candies that the Hershey Company makes. The milk chocolate bar was the first one made by the manufacturer in 1903. It became quite popular and helped the company to begin growing. Bite-size candy pieces were introduced in 1907.

They were wrapped in silver paper then and remain the same today as the Hershey's Kisses. More than 80 million of them are produced every day.

Mr. Goodbar was introduced in 1925. It is made of milk chocolate and peanuts which give consumers a combination of savory and sweet. The Krackel bar containing crisped rice was made in 1938.

The hard candies covered in chocolate known as M&M's named after founders, Bruce Murrie and Forest Mars, were introduced in 1948.

Because of mergers and deals with other chocolate manufacturers, many candies were added to the Hershey Company. They included Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in 1963. In 1969, Hershey acquired the right to market Kit Kat and the same thing happened in 1988 with the Cadbury products. In 1977, Hershey became the makers of Twizzlers licorice candies.

As you can see, the Hershey Company has been adding candies throughout the years. Hopefully, you will enjoy Hershey's Gold when it becomes available on December 1.
