Hersheypark’s Chocolate World is planning to expand

Hersheypark’s Chocolate World have confirmed their plans to expand and upgrade the building and parking facilities within its complex over the next few years.

The popular tourist destination plans for a 3,900-square-foot expansion of the building in Phase I, primarily to improve its restroom facilities as well as a 6,580-square-foot expansion of the retail area which is scheduled to go ahead around 2016-17.

Having been approved by the Derry Township board of supervisors the parking expansion project will add 212 regular parking spaces and an additional six handicapped parking spaces to the lot. As a result of this additional parking facility the main entrance will also need to be moved.

According to Derry Township Community Development director Chuck Emerick work on the first phase of the Chocolate World project is expected to begin in 2014. 

13 Jun

Hersheys Simple Pleasures. Hopefully we will soon be able to sell it online in AustraliaGood news for all lovers of Hershey Chocolate with the company proudly announcing the launch of Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates.

Hershey’s first new product launch since 2007, Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates contains 30% less fat than most other milk chocolate products currently on the market. A selling point which is sure to be well documented within a strong advertising and digital media campaign that is planned to go run throughout July.

‘We know people love chocolate and want to live a balanced lifestyle’ said Hershey brand spokesperson Anna Lingeris.

‘With Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates, our goal is to give chocolate lovers a reason to celebrate because they can finally have it all … delicious chocolate they can feel great about loving’.

Available in three varieties, Milk Chocolate with Chocolate Creme, Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Creme and Milk Chocolate with Vanilla Creme, each one is individually wrapped in 24-count 5.6-ounce bags.

Now retailing in supermarkets, grocery and drug stores throughout the USA, the product which is hoped will be as popular as Hershey’s Bliss has become is expected to become available through specialist stores in Australia within the next few months.

Higher prices boost Hershey 1Q results

25 Apr

Buy Hershey Chocolate Online at Moo-Lolly-Bar AustraliaThe first quarter was a sweet one for The Hershey Co.

The candy maker said Tuesday its first-quarter profit rose 24 percent as higher prices and cost cutting helped offset higher ingredient costs. The company raised its sales forecast for the year and its shares rose 3.5 percent in premarket trading.

Most food makers have been increasing prices to offset rising ingredient costs. Last year Hershey, famous for its chocolate bars, Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s peanut butter cups, raised prices by nearly 10 percent to offset rising prices for raw materials including sugar, fuel and packaging.

The company said higher prices helped offset slightly lower volume and sent revenue up 11 percent. The Hershey, Pa.-based company has also been boosting advertising spending in the U.S. and abroad.

“Hershey’s strong start to the year is the result of our continued strategy of disciplined investment in core brands in both the U.S. and key international markets,” said CEO John Bilbrey.

He said Easter sales were likely “solid,” but since the holiday fell on April 8 and the quarter ended April 1, the total effect was not felt during the quarter.

Hershey said that net income rose to $198.7 million, or 87 cents per share, for the quarter ended April 1. That is up from $160.1 million, or 70 cents per share, a year ago. Excluding one-time items, earnings totaled 96 cents per share. Analysts expected 81 cents per share, according to FactSet.

Revenue rose 11 percent to $1.73 billion. Analysts predicted revenue of $1.66 billion.

Hershey says it expects adjusted net income for the year to rise 10 percent to 12 percent, up from a prior estimate of 9 percent to 11 percent. It expects a 7 percent to 9 percent sales increase. It’s the third time the company has raised its sales forecast for the year — in the prior quarter it said it expected a 6.5 percent to 8.5 percent rise.

Hershey plans to roll out new products in the current quarter including Rolo Minis, Ice Breakers Duos and Hershey’s Simple Pleasures, flavored milk chocolate that has 30 percent less fat than other milk chocolate.

Its shares rose $2.19, or 3.5 percent, to $64.48 in premarket trading. That would top its 52-week high of $63.27 if it carries over into regular trading once the market opens.
