Hershey has detailed its new Valentine’s Day and Easter lineup for next year in a press release issued Monday, confirming the return of fan favorites, like Reese’s eggs, in addition to some new additions, including a chocolate Build-A-Bunny.
The Build-A-Bunny, as its name might suggest, is a chocolate bunny designed so that various pieces can be broken off and then rearranged in various ways. The company had previously offered similar "Build-A-Snowman" and "Build-A-Santa" chocolates during the 2020 holidays.
Hershey also debuted a new addition to its Reese’s lineup: a marshmallow-topped peanut butter cup.

Yes, it's as good as it sounds."
Hershey's Valentine’s Day offerings are all, not surprisingly, love-themed. Included among 2021's items are chocolate teddy bears, rose-shaped chocolates and a variety of candy-filled boxes.
"Whether you are a hopeless romantic or a last-minute Cupid, these new offerings are the perfect treat to make Valentine's Day extra special," said Erin Crawford, brand manager for holidays. "Our team took our classics – Kisses candies, Hershey's chocolates, Reese's cups – and added new seasonal masterpieces that you'll want to stock up on for the entire year."
