Hershey’s Goes All-American with New ‘Red White & Blue’ Candy Bar for Smores

by Will Shepard

Summer 2021 is already looking like it is going to be a blast. Live events for music and sports are making their return, and so are public gatherings. But, what are food companies contributing to this summer’s outlook? Well, Hershey has released a brand new candy bar for its customers to enjoy.

Just in time for Memorial Day weekend cookouts, Hershey’s decided to craft a new candy bar. The candy is a true marker of patriotism. It is a red, white, and blue concoction that is intended as a compliment to s’mores. It will make the perfect pairing for Memorial Day.

So, what is actually in this candy bar that will make it such a tasty treat for summer? Officially named the Hershey’s Red, White, and Blue Cookies ‘n’ Creme bar, the special treat starts out with some rich creme. In that regard, it is very similar to the original bar. However, this one is filled with red, white, and blue cookie pieces.

According to Taste of Home, the candy bar tastes just like most Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars. But, the patriotic colors inside the candy bar will add some unique variety to each bite.

This Hershey’s candy bar came out just about the same time as it did last year. But it appears to be a seasonal addition to the lineup the company runs out. So, if you didn’t get to pick one up last year, now you can get one.

Even though Hershey’s adds new things to its menus here and there, like holiday-themed chocolate Kisses, the company doesn’t release new candy bars all that often. So, when they put out a new candy bar like this one, it takes the food world by storm.

So, Where Can You Purchase One of These Hershey’s Candy Bars for Memorial Day?

These Hershey’s Red, White, and Blue Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars are a limited edition release. So, you need to find them as soon as you can because they will disappear all too soon.

You can find these candy bars at Walmart and Target around the country. Each store will likely have its own price points for them. An important detail to note is that you cannot buy the candy as individual bars. Instead, the Hershey’s bars are available in 6-packs. This is much like the regular milk chocolate s’mores bars that the company always offers up for sale.

Now, that might not be a bad thing at all. It means that you can hoard a few bars for yourself and share a couple of the other ones.

Undoubtedly, these Hershey’s Red, White, and Blue Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars will be a big hit at any Memorial Day weekend celebration. So, go hit the stores to see if you can find some of these unique treats.
