Hershey's raises its prices

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The cost of feeding your sweet tooth just went up.

Hershey's increased its prices Tuesday on several of its candies including Kisses, Kit Kat Bars, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Whoppers.

The increase is just about 8 percent.

The company said the price hike is due to the higher price of ingredients including cocoa, dairy, and nuts, in addition to rising transportation and utilities costs.
