Almost everyone knows what a Hershey’s chocolate bar tastes like and looks like. But pretty soon, the look will change.

Hershey’s chocolate bar has been around for a long time. So long in fact, they have decided to change not just the wrapping, but the stamp on the chocolate as well. According to Delish, Hershey’s chocolate bars are getting a makeover after over 100 years.

New York Daily News gave some history on the bar stating that the company was founded in 1894 and debuted the milk chocolate bar in 1900. It always had the word “Hershey” stamped on each square.

Recently, Hershey’s took to Instagram to announce that the new design would be called The Emoji Bar. Each square of chocolate will be stamped with a fun emoji.

According to People, Hershey’s enlisted in the help of adults and children to select the 25 emojis that would be used on the famous chocolate bar.

Senior Brand Manager Kriston Ohm said, “In today’s text savvy world, many conversations start (and end) with an emoji. We worked directly with people using emojis the most- parents and kid- to determine which ones made it onto our iconic chocolate bar.”

She continued in their findings sharing, “It turned out that both generations favors the same 25 emojis.” Ohm also shared the idea behind the redesign saying, “Our classic Hershey’s bars were made to be shared with others, by adding an emoji design to each pip of chocolate, we hope that parents and kids are inspired to share a chocolate emoji and make a connection with someone new.” How sweet!

Some of the emojis that made the cut are the smiley face, the smiley heart and thumbs up. The chocolate bar will come in a standard 1.55-ounce and will retail at $0.99. It will also be available in a 9.45-ounce snack size bag for $4.09.

While we know the Hershey bar will look different, we are still not given an exact date of when they will be available to purchase, but it will be in the summer. New York Daily News reported that regular Hershey bars will still be available, and the emoji bar will only be available for a limited time, while supplies last.
