The Hershey Co. today announced it has launched a new spreads product line with three flavors, similar to competitors such as Nutella.

The Dauphin County-based company's Hershey's Spreads will come in chocolate, chocolate with almond and chocolate with hazelnut, according to a news release. The spreads are available nationwide in 13-ounce jars.

Hershey has launched other new products recently, including its Lancaster-brand caramels.

The candy giant has been on a path of new markets and products since it set revenue goals of $10 billion by 2017, a 54 percent increase from 2012 levels. That has also launched the company into acquisitions such as buying out its joint-venture partners in India and acquiring a Chinese company last month.

The Derry Township-based company trades its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HSY.
