Hershey's Fireworks

Hershey's White Creme with Sprinkles and Popping Candy
The Hershey Company (2023)
I found this at Wal-Mart last month, and while I thought it tasted pretty good, I couldn't help but to think that the marketing department at Hershey has really just stopped trying when it comes to the name of their products.  The wrapper is covered in stars, the candy bar itself is red, white and blue, and it's filled with candy pieces that are similar to Pop Rocks that pop and tingle in your mouth as you eat it.  The copy practically writes itself to tie this product in with Independence Day or fireworks, but... nope.

It's a pretty tasty candy bar if you like white chocolate, but is "Hershey's White Creme with Sprinkles and Popping Candy" really the best name they could come up with?
