Mix And Mingle: Hershey’s Debuts Holiday-Themed Chocolate Treats

There is nothing like unwrapping the gift of chocolate during the holiday season. It is literally the sweetest present. From white and dark chocolate, to peanut butter cups and dipped pretzels, the options for gifting Hershey’s are as plentiful as they are popular.

The cocoa bean, also known as cacao, is one of the more bitter seeds. It derives from South America, mainly in the area within the Amazon Basin, but there are plenty of chocolate treats that come from Africa, too. About 70 percent of modern-day cocoa beans come from West Africa.

But few companies have created a magical treat like Hershey’s has. The Pennsylvania-based cocoa company, founded in 1894 by Milton Hershey, continues to be an American favorite.

Come holiday season, Hershey’s always unveils festive treats. This year is no different, with five brand new holiday-themed candies, in addition to the perennially favorites (Think red and green wrapped Hershey Kisses and special chocolate bars.)

Take a look at some of Hershey’s newest products, which make the perfect gift for basically anyone.
