Hershey’s and Reese’s are two of America’s most-loved chocolate brands, which makes them perfect partners for long-time whipped topping manufacturer Kraft Heinz. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dairy Whipped Toppings offer flavors the whole family can enjoy.

Consumers are seeking sweets not just as after-dinner desserts, but also as daytime snacks. These new whipped toppings add a delicious dimension to any sweet treat, from morning to night.

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dairy Whipped Toppings bring a touch of sweetness to beverages like hot chocolate or coffee, are the perfect way to cap off a scoop of ice cream and can take your favorite cake or other baked good to the next level.

Both whipped topping flavors are made with 100% real cream from cows not treated with rBST growth hormone, and without high-fructose corn syrup, oil ingredients, and artificial sweeteners or flavors. Plus, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate is made with Hershey’s cocoa.
