I just read this article in The Wall Street Journal about Hershey’s increasing their wholesale prices almost 10%. You know what my first thought was? It doesn’t impact me!
Since I have started using coupons and shopping at Walgreens or CVS I have learned that there is no need to pay for gum, candy or chocolate. I already told you how to get some free Hershey’s bliss at Walgreens this month. There seems to be a candy deal at CVS almost every week. Or you can just wait for a good post-holiday clearance to get some cheap chocolate.
So Hershey’s I feel your pain as a manufacturer, but because I am a better shopper than I was a year ago, your price increase doesn’t affect me.
