HERSHEY, Pa.—7-Eleven and The Hershey Company are teaming up to offer new confectionery items exclusively at 7-Eleven stores in Thailand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia, according to a news release.
Available at nearly 25,000 7-Eleven stores in the five participating countries, these Hershey products will be available starting in November. The initial product assortment will include Hershey's Nuggets in four flavors: Creamy Milk, Cookies n Crème, Creamy Strawberry and Creamy Yogurt flavors. The packaging on the candy will feature both companies’ logos and will signal to consumers that the items are something special they can get only at 7-Eleven.
The confectionery items will be manufactured in Hershey's plant in Malaysia that features innovations like automated candy-making technology and proprietary equipment and systems developed specifically for Hershey. The plant is equipped with high-speed wrapping machines featuring one-of-a-kind packaging technologies. Hershey's Malaysia plant already brings favorite Hershey-branded creations, including Hershey's Kisses, Bars, Nuggets and Syrup to millions of consumers across Asia.
“7-Eleven is always looking for opportunities to bring new foods and beverages to our customers in the U.S. and around the world," said 7-Eleven Senior Vice President-International Ken Wakabayashi. "This collaboration with Hershey is a great example of what two international brands can achieve together. In Thailand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia, these sweet treats reinforce the idea that 7-Eleven is a convenient destination for top-quality items you can't get anywhere else."
