Valentine’s Day may be over but chocolates are also a discussion at the Hershey Company! This morning, the company announced that Lancaster Soft Crèmes are now available at retailers nationwide. Three flavors are initially offered. They are: Caramel, Vanilla and Caramel and Vanilla and Raspberry.

The Hershey Company is of course named for Milton Hershey, who began his chocolate empire in Lancaster City. Hershey's original confection company was the Lancaster Caramel Company.

Lancaster Soft Crèmes have a distinctively different taste that one expects from typical caramels. They are said to be inspired by the candies similar to the ones Hershey created over 120 years ago at his Lancaster plant.

"With the new Lancaster brand available nationwide, consumers can savor a rich and buttery caramel in a soft crème that is rooted in our deep history of creating delicious and delightful candy experiences," said Steven Schiller, Senior Vice President Sweets and Refreshment, The Hershey Company.

The candies will be offered in 8 oz. bags with a suggested retail price of $3.99 and 4 oz. bags with a suggested retail price of $2.49, according to a company release.
