HERSHEY, PA -- For the first time in its 125-year history, Hershey Co.’s iconic namesake brand is changing the look of its original milk chocolate bar and transforming each piece to include an emoji.

The new Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Emoji Bars will feature 25 of the most popular emojis across six different emoji packaging designs -- all designed to collect, share and eat. The new bars are set to launch this summer, nationwide, for a limited-time only in both standard 1.55-oz. bars.

The new Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Emoji Bar has an emoji for every emotion, designed to offer a fun way for kids to connect with others, whether on the first day of school or if they just moved to a new neighborhood.

Each one was carefully selected by parents and kids to feature meanings that would help to spark a conversation. Hershey said its research showed that 87% of kids agreed that the new Hershey’s emoji bar is something they would want to share with others.

The new emoji bars will available in the run up to back-to-school, while supplies last.
