You haven’t lived until you’ve had candy fresh off of the production line. Or at least, Hershey’s doesn’t think so. The chocolate company is offering select products Fresh from the Factory, delivered to your door within 96 hours (excluding some parts of the southwest) of production, to “allow you to experience extreme freshness which you will see, smell and taste!”.
They are offering a few different products with staggered release dates. First up are the fresh Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, which will ship at the end of this month. You can read some reviews of them here and here. A few weeks later (6/18), Hershey’s will ship fresh strawberry and licorice Twizzlers, as well as Good N’ Plenty. In August, fresh PayDay’s will be available.
These candies aren’t cheap (Cybele said she could buy the equivalent number of Reese’s for $6 in a regular store), but if you’re a fan the novelty of the experience – as well as the flavor, if the reviews are to be believed – might be worth it.
