When people in California think about Hershey, one thing typically comes to mind: a sweet piece of chocolate. Hershey, however, was recently involved in a not-so-sweet business litigation case involving a couple of marijuana companies located in other states. According to the chocolate candy maker, these marijuana shops were selling products using packaging that closely resembled Hershey's wrappers. Hershey recently settled the trademark infringement suit it had filed against the two companies.
One of the two companies, named TinctureBelle, sold candies called Dabby Patty and Hashheath. Hershey claimed that these candies were imitations of its own York patties and Heath bars. The other company, Conscious Care, was selling Mr. Dankbar and Reefer's. Hershey said these treats imitated its own Reese's and Mr. Goodbar candies.
