The Hershey Company has come a long way since it was founded in Pennsylvania Dutch country in 1894. Today, Hershey products can be found in stores across the globe. But to celebrate the candymaker's all-American roots, the brand is launching a new collection of confections that channels the signature tastes of six U.S. states, Thrillist reports.
When seeking inspiration for its "Flavors of America" line, Hershey chose “summer-inspired flavors sure to transport your senses,” according to a press release. California’s Strawberry Kit Kats are meant to pay homage to the California Strawberry Festival, which is held in Oxnard each May. Hawaii's Coconut Almond Hershey’s Kisses are a nod to the tropical flavors of The Aloha State.
Other items include Cherry Cheesecake Hershey’s Bars for New York, Honey-Roasted Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for Georgia, and BBQ-Flavored PayDay Bars—made with BBQ-seasoned peanuts—for a big, bold taste worthy of Texas. Florida is the only state with two candy options: Key Lime Pie Twizzlers and Orange Cream Pop Twizzlers.
Patriotic candy lovers looking to indulge in the Flavors of America without leaving their home state can find the treats at retailers nationwide. The limited edition collection is only available while supplies last.
