One bite of Kit Kat® Strawberry Flavored Candy, made with crispy wafers and strawberry crème, will take your imagination to the annual California Strawberry Festival where you can enjoy the feeling of simple fruity bliss among the strawberry fields. If your dream summer destination is a bit more tropical, let delicious Hershey’s Kisses Coconut Almond Flavored Candies transcend your taste buds to the beaches of Hawaii. Close your eyes and feel that warm summer breeze.

Summer is also a time to gather friends and family around a summertime barbeque. Try something new inspired from the grill with PayDay BBQ Flavored Bars. These new bars combine the tang of bold BBQ-seasoned peanuts surrounding a chewy caramel center for a unique, Texas-inspired flavor. Relax with friends at a beach bonfire on a clear summer night and share something unexpected with a new take on Reese’s – Reese’s Honey Roasted Flavored Peanut Butter Cups. The twist on a classic offers a mixture of sweet and salty peanut butter notes complete with a hint of floral, amber and molasses – all providing the sweet taste of Georgia.

Just want to kick your feet up and relax by the pool Florida-style? Say no more. Refresh your summer days with Twizzlers Key Lime Pie Flavored Twists or Twizzlers Orange Cream Pop Flavored Twists. Both new flavors are reminiscent of the sunshine state with the sweet and tart taste of key lime pie and classic Florida oranges with a filling of smooth cream.

Last but not least, the classic Hershey’s bar takes a page of inspiration from summers in New York with Hershey’s Cherry Cheesecake Flavored Bars. This new treat captures the taste of creamy New York cherry cheesecake in every bite, making it easy to enjoy wherever your summer takes you.

The Hershey Company’s Flavors of America collection is now available at retailers nationwide while supplies last.
