What Does Simple Really Mean?

When we say we're committed to making our products using simple ingredients, we mean our goal is to use familiar ingredients you might find in your kitchen, like fresh milk from local farms, roasted California almonds, cocoa beans and sugar. Of course, some ingredients are not as simple. For those ingredients, we'll explain what they are and why we need them to provide the great flavors, aromas, textures and appearance that our consumers know and love.

If you care about what goes into the foods you eat, you’re not alone. People everywhere are choosing foods that have ingredients they recognize. That’s why we’re focused on making our great-tasting chocolates and snacks with simpler ingredients.

Commitment to Simple

This commitment to simple ingredients is part of our heritage. We started making great-tasting chocolate in 1894 using a few familiar ingredients we’d all recognize, like cocoa, milk, sugar and vanilla. We’re continuing that tradition today to ensure current and future generations can enjoy that same pure and simple experience. Whether it be our iconic Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar or our new, delicious snacks like Krave and Brookside Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bars, you can be sure you’ll continue to get the same great taste you know and love.

Our Relationship with Food is Evolving

School and work and commitments make it harder to always sit down for a full meal. More and more, we choose a snack to satisfy our needs while on the go. That’s just a fact of modern life. And if it’s a Hershey snack, we want you to feel good about how it was made. That’s what we are all about.
