Hershey To Raise Prices Of Some Of Its Chocolate


Stock up on chocolate now, because after the new year it is likely going to cost more.  Hershey announced it is going through with a planned price increase early next year to offset increases in commodity and shipping costs.  The candy company said it would raise prices of some of its products by about 2.5%.  It also has other changes in the works, including a Reese's Thins, which would be a 40% slimmer peanut butter cup.  It has also purchased some healthier products, including Pirate Brands.
