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 small, uniformly-shaped cookie bits similar in taste and texture to an Oreo. It was introduced in 1994.[1] The "king-sized" variant of the bar shares the dimensions of the original bar but is thicker vertically. This is one of the few Hershey's chocolates sold in the United Kingdom. The standard-sized bar has 12 rectangular blocks arranged in a 3X4 grid. Similar Cookies 'n' Creme candies manufactured by Hershey were released as Hershey's Drops in 2010.

Recipe change[edit]

The Hershey Company later changed the ingredients of some of its products in order to replace the relatively expensive cocoa butter with oil substitutes.[2] As a result, the packaging no longer states that the bar contains white chocolate.
