A S'MORES
SUMMER
Looking ahead, as more people receive the vaccine and consumer
optimism improves, The Hershey Company's consumer
insights indicate people are excited to safely gather together
once again. This means that people are once again investing in
their homes and outdoor spaces, driving S'mores participation
even further. In fact, this summer:
* 80% of households with children plan to make S'mores
* 60% of all consumers plan to make S'mores
* 26% of consumers will make S'mores more frequently than
last summer
Successfully executing across three pillars led to a 30 percent
growth in Hershey's Milk Chocolate six-packs last summer, according
to Hershey. And while people this year are looking to
widen their S'mores circles with extended family and friends, doing
so outdoors this summer is still a priority. With these insights
in mind, Hershey's is doubling down to be part of even more
S'mores moments this year.

seasonal support four weeks earlier this year with a fully integrated
media strategy.
Further, at the Sweets & Snacks Expo, Hershey presented a
host of insights and innovations. Digital commerce, multiple fulfillment
and checkout options in-store are giving shoppers more
options than ever before. These options, combined with heightened
expectations for safety and convenience -accelerated by
the pandemic - are forcing retailers to adapt faster than ever.
" What we found, even before the pandemic, was that shoppers
expect a connected experience, no matter where they are
purchasing their items, " said Dave Nolen, vice president of category
management and shopper insights, The Hershey Company.
" Even as mission-driven trips and click-and-collect orders are increasing,
we're finding that 55-70% of shoppers purchase additional
items, beyond their in-store pickup order. Whether people
are shopping online or in-store, there's a strong opportunity to
get them to consider purchasing something that wasn't on their
initial shopping list. "
While retailers are addressing the needs for convenience and
