Hershey Chocolate Kisses

Gasp!

Hershey Chocolate KissesEveryone who knows me understands that I’m a chocoholic, and I’m not in recovery.  I probably eat my body weight in chocolate every year.  I guess the time to diet has finally arrived.  Sadness and despair abound over the news.  If you ask me, candy bars are already insanely expensive for what they are.

(CNN) — The Hershey Company says it is raising wholesale prices by 9.7% on most of its candy products.

The maker of Reese’s, Kit Kat, Hershey’s Kisses and Twizzlers cited increased costs for raw materials, fuel, utilities and transportation.
