Chocoholics, this news might bring you to [Reese’s] pieces


(CNN) – There’s not-so-great news for fans of Hershey’s chocolates, as the company has announced it’s going to be increasing its prices by 8 percent.

Kisses, Reese’s, Kit Kats and all of the other company’s signature chocolate treats will be affected by the latest announcement.

The company blames the increase on higher costs of ingredients, transportation and utilities.

The increased cost of cocoa, dairy and nuts have also contributed to the price hike as well. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
