why hershey's cost so much it has gone from 5 cents to one dollar over the years?!
It's the cocoa they use that has gone up. It is imported, much like coffee, and as these countries develop and see how much the product is worth to users, they increase the price. Supply and Demand. In the next ten years, a Hershey's or Nestles bar is expected to triple in price because of this. India's adn China's demands are through the roof now and we will be competing with them for the cocoa.
In case you haven't noticed EVERYthing has gone up in price over the years.
Do you know what inflation is?
