“It’s just pure, simple flavor…the way it’s always been — It hasn’t changed.”

You can do the same in your kitchen. With the best syrup recipes on hand, you can enhance your favorite desserts, drinks and everyday snacks.

Cruisin Coffee’s Success Story

For the last 28 years, Mack has been mixing HERSHEY’S chocolate syrup into his coffee drinks, sharing its classic taste with his loyal customers. From mocha beverages and hot chocolates to his famous mocha milkshake (yes, you can start licking your lips for this one), Mack incorporates HERSHEY’S syrup because he knows it delivers a consistent and authentic chocolate syrup taste, the same as it’s always been.

Since Cruisin Coffee’s opening day, HERSHEY’S syrup has been a signature offering and a key ingredient in the shop’s success. According to Mack, it’s the third most used commodity aside from milk and coffee, of course.
