Twelve Days of Christmas: Hershey’s New Candy Cane Bar!

CC_Hershey's Candy Cane bar TITLE PLATEEvery year there are always new candy packages and products released for the Christmas holiday season.  One brand new item that I found particularly striking from the packaging standpoint was Hershey’s Candy Cane bar.

I think what makes this one so appealing is how much it takes its look from the standard Hershey bar, but utilizing classic Christmas visual elements while doing so.  The candy cane stripes on both ends of the wrapper really do draw the eye in as does the bright white background.  Released in more standard  1.55 ounce size, as well as a king-size 3.55 oz.  Here are the wrappers for both:

I have no doubt that this new bar is going to be a returning addition to Hershey’s annual holiday arsenal.  For a lovely review of the bar itself, I’d direct you to check out my pal Cybele’s review over at CandyBlog.

One other fun bit of related packaging I picked up this year was for Hershey’s Peppermint Bark Bells.  The white background of this one made me think I should include it in today’s post:

I love the look of these holiday Hershey packages for this year.  Great-looking stuff.

And that’s everything for today’s post.  See you next time!
