Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate milkshakeWith the popularity of single-serve milk and chocolate milk positioned as a recovery beverage, processors like Lynnfield, Mass.-based HP Hood are taking notice. HP Hood’s single-serve line of Hershey’s Milk & Milkshakes is adding Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate milkshake to its refrigerated products line.

The new milk product is inspired by Hershey's Special Dark flavor within its candy line. Along with the existing milk flavors, the Special Dark Chocolate flavor will be available in 12-ounce, single-serve, plastic bottles at retailers nationwide beginning in March. Each bottle contains 12 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fat.

Hershey’s Milk and Milkshakes are made with real sugar and no high-fructose corn syrup. The milk is also available in creamy chocolate, cookies n’ crème and strawberry milkshake flavors. HP Hood partnered with The Hershey Company to launch the line of Hershey-branded products in 2010.
