Truck driver shortage souring the American sweet tooth
One of my vices is a fondness for Hershey’s chocolate. This preference is not to say that I avoid products made by other chocolatiers, but when faced with the choice of several brands, Hershey’s milk chocolate is usually the preferred indulgence to my palate. The preference has always been favorable to my wallet, as well, since, up to now, when compared to most of the foreign, more exotic brands currently available, Hershey’s has always been an economical alternative. However, the price of my sweet obsession is increasing, and rising truck costs in our industry may be a big part of the cause.
