hershey-carb-alternatives.jpgHershey this summer will add a new “Carb Alternatives” line that will join its sugar free candy and Hershey’s 1 Gram Sugar Carb Bar as a new option for consumers following low-carb diets. Hershey’s Carb Alternatives line will include low-carb versions of some of the most popular brands in the world, including: Hershey’s milk chocolate with almonds, Reese’s Miniatures, Hershey’s Kisses, and Kit Kat Miniatures.

As of right now, the only nutritional information known is that the new products will offer “the same great Hershey’s taste with 50 percent less sugar carbs” and that the candy will be in miniature-sized pieces to make portion control easier. Carb Alternatives will come in 3.3-ounce bags that will retail for approximately $1.99. All of the products will be available beginning July 23, 2004.
