Hershey Wants To Satisfy Your Marijuana Munchies

Hershey Canada wants to be top of mind next time you get the marijuana munchies. The prolific candy-bar company is set to release the new 'Oh Henry! 4:25' - the candy-bar for 5 minutes after your 4:20 session.

While Hershey has yet to reveal any plans to produce any stoney versions of their signature candy-bars, they're using a different approach to entering the cannabis industry. Last April, Hershey revealed their new Oh Henry! 4:25 with a release date of Summer 2018. The bar is a modified version of the classic Oh Henry! that forgoes the chocolate coating and doubles down on caramel and peanuts, presumably to make the bar heartier.

In an interview with CityNews, Hershey Senior Marketing Manager Mathieu Gamache revealed that the company isn't worried that the marketing campaign will turn off existing customers because the new bar "isn't about the consumption [of cannabis] per se, we're focusing on hunger."

"It still plays in the same territory that the brand always played," explained Gamache.

This is one of the first instance of a non-cannabis edibles company trying to transition into the cannabis space. For now, anyway, Hershey doesn't have any plans to start making cannabis-infused bars - but maybe we'll see a spin-off brand sometime in the future.


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
