Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 26, 2009
Sugar Stand, an online retailer of all things sweet, recently announced that it now offers one of America’s favorite brands: Hershey’s. The Hershey Company is North America’s largest producer of quality chocolates with a history that spans over one hundred years. Known for its Hershey chocolate bars, the Hershey Company also produces familiar brands such as Reese’s, Kit Kat, and York Peppermint Patties. Not only does Hershey produce some of America’s most beloved chocolates, it also produces confections such as Jolly Rancher, Ice Breakers, and Twizzlers.
Hershey’s brands are a hit with consumers nationwide. According to Hershey’s Web site, research cited in the NFO Movie Goer Research indicates that four out of the top five products that consumers intend to purchase at movie concession stands are Hershey’s products. Hershey’s also reports that its brand portfolio share of 28 percent is greater than its two major competitors, Mars and Nestle, combined at 22.9 percent.
According to a Sugar Stand spokesperson, “Our customers asked for a greater selection of Hershey’s candies and we listened. Now, not only can our customers find terrific deals on bulk candy, they can satisfy their cravings for chocolate. We offer a huge selection of America’s favorite chocolate brands from Hershey.”
But what about the fact that chocolate melts? “One of the challenges with selling chocolates online involves ensuring that the chocolates arrive to the consumer in excellent condition. Because chocolate products are meltable, we pack all potentially meltable orders with ice and recommend overnight shipping.”
With a one hundred year history, Hershey continues to be a leader focused on delivering fresh products. Tanker trucks filled with fresh whole milk arrive at the factory where the milk is added to sugar, forming a sweet, milky ingredient that is then blended with chocolate liquor made from fresh roasted cacao beans. The manufacturing process continues, creating a delicious milk chocolate that ultimately becomes Hershey Kisses or is poured into candy bar molds to form the icon Hershey Bar and other beloved products. Over a billion pounds of Hershey products are shipped fresh each year. A computerized distribution system is used to ensure that retailers such as Sugar Stand receive fresh-from-the-factory products.
As part of a larger distribution system, Sugar Stand is able to provide consumers and businesses with bulk pricing on their favorite sweet treats while also providing a one-stop shop for candy and chocolates.
