Hershey’s and DC Comics teamed up to make superhero chocolate bars that are set to be released this summer, and the two iconic brands are sharing the first batch with frontline workers of the coronavirus pandemic prior to its launch.

The Hershey’s Super Hero Milk Chocolate bars feature DC Comics faves like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman on the packaging. Each bite of the milk chocolate itself has a superhero logo or a simple “Bam!” on it. The bars will be available to the larger public in July for a limited time, but frontline workers get first dibs. Boxes of the bars have already been sent to various frontline workers at hospitals, police stations, and fire houses in the hardest hit areas like New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. They were sent as a small thank you for the real hero work they are doing!

Along with the superhero chocolate bar donation, Hershey’s has put in other efforts to help out communities during this time. The company has donated millions in money and product to healthcare organizations. It also committed $1 million to acquiring and staffing a new manufacturing line dedicated to producing face masks. These actions follow in the footsteps of the company’s founder Milton Hershey, who created jobs during the Great Depression and made ration bars for the U.S. Army during World War ll, according to Hershey’s Website.
