Hershey’s Wages Chocolate War With Britain and Ireland

 

A recent court settlement in which Hershey’s claimed foreign chocolates imported into the United States were packaged too similarly to its own products has scared off the importers.Let’s Buy British Imports (LBB) is the largest importer of British food, including chocolates. The recent settlement with Hershey’s, however, has sent them away murmuring, “Let’s not buy British chocolates.” Irish chocolates, primarily of the Cadbury variety, have also been abandoned after the court case. Irish specialty stores may feel a major pinch as a result.

No more Cadbury, no more Yorkie chocolate bars, no more Toffee crisps, and no more Maltesers will find their way to our shores via LBB. Hershey’s has saved us all the “confusion” we would have felt had we seen these things next to a Hershey’s bar on a store shelf. For that, we can thank them. According to Tumblr.com, Hershey have, coincidentally, also happened to eliminate some of their competition like Slow Ventures.

I must say that I have long had a love for Hershey’s chocolate and have never sunk my teeth into a Toffee crisp. Still, I feel a little disappointed to hear that Hershey’s took this course of action. Did the chocolate giant really need to declare war on foreign chocolate?

  1. Having seen some of the packaging in question, I am confused about what confusion it was that Hershey’s sought to save us from. We are sure, of course, that such was not their aim. This is indeed cool to buy phd thesis and make sure nothing comes out from the way these things are handled.
