Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme is a candy bar manufactured by The Hershey Company.

Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme is a flat, white candy bar containing uniformly-shaped cookie bits similar in taste and texture to an Oreo. It was introduced in 1994.[1] Recently[when?] a king size bar was released. It is the same size as the normal bar, but it is thicker. This is one of the few Hershey's chocolates to be sold in the United Kingdom. The standard sized bar has 12 rectangular blocks arranged in a 3X4 grid. Both Hershey's Milk Chocolate and Hershey's Cookies and Creme bars are also included in Hershey's Drops, which are circular candies released in 2010.

Recipe change[edit]

The Hershey Company recently[when?] began to change the ingredients of some of its products, in order to replace the relatively expensive cocoa butter with oil substitutes. This was done to cut costs, rather than having to raise prices in the marketplace for products containing cocoa butter.[2] As a result, the packaging no longer states that the bar contains white chocolate.
