Hershey is releasing its first new candy bar in more than 20 years

Hershey's latest news is the perfect cure for Halloween withdrawal.

The candymaker has developed a new confection: the Hershey's Gold bar, a caramelized creme bar full of crunchy peanuts and pretzels, The Associated Press reported. It's the first new bar for Hershey's since it unveiled Cookies 'n Creme in 1995.

The bar debuts Dec. 1 — just in time to be a sweet and salty stocking stuffer.
