More recently on the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8, the company has relaunched its limited-edition Hershey’s SHE bars to honour women and girls who make an impact on every individual’s lives. For this initiative Hershey collaborated with Girls on the Run coaches and participants who described impactful women in their lives helping the brand curate over 200 powerful adjectives featured on the Hershey’s SHE bars.

This bar with 200+ thoughtful adjectives created with our partners Girls on the Run reminds us to take a moment to honour the women and girls who inspire us every day. We hope to spark meaningful, heart-warming connections through the simple gesture of giving a SHE bar to someone who has played an important role in your life,” said Katie DeCapria, Brand Manager, Hershey’s.
