Hershey, PA -Due to the ever increasing cost of paper, The Hershey Co. has announced that it will no longer include the little paper strips along with its famous Kisses. Hershey CEO David West, states "It may seem insignificant, however that little piece of paper adds up over time. By eliminating that single strip from every Kiss, we can save thousands of dollars per year. That cost savings can then be transfered to our shareholders."
