For the first time in the brand’s 90-year history, it will be removing chocolate entirely from its fan-favourite confectionery line that has proved one of parent company Hershey’s most enduring successes.
It latest Ultimate Peanut Butter Lovers Cups feature a double dose of 100% peanut butter-flavoured candy, which was first trialled in two previous limited runs in 2009 and 2010.
