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] The king size variant of the bar shares the dimensions of the original bar but is thicker vertically. 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. 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.
