June 02, 2015 // Franchising.com // PLANO, TEXAS – Pizza night just got a whole lot sweeter. This week, Pizza Hut introduces the all-new Hershey’s® Triple Chocolate Brownie to its flavorful dessert offerings, freshly baked to order and packed with three types of genuine Hershey’s products – Hershey’s Cocoa, Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips®, and Hershey’s Special Dark® Chocolate Chips.
Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie is now available for $5.99 at all 6,300 Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide.
“When we introduced the Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie last year, we knew what was inevitably going to happen: going full-on chocolate for our next dessert offering,” said Carrie Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer, Pizza Hut, U.S. “The Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie is definitely the sweetest – and most satisfying – way to end any pizza night.”
The Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie is eight inches square and cut into nine indulgent pieces, all delivered warm to your door. More than 100 chocolate chips are included in the brownie, both on top and baked inside.
“We’ve all been there – after enjoying the savory deliciousness of a pizza, we’re looking for a sweet, flavorful way to complete the meal,” said Walsh. “We’re confident that this partnership with Hershey’s delivers on giving our customers a truly delicious chocolate experience.”
The Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie is the second offering from the Pizza Hut Hershey’s partnership, which debuted last July with the introduction of the Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie.
As part of the launch of the Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie, on Tuesday, June 2, Pizza Hut will also launch “The Dessert Debate” on Twitter, where followers of @PizzaHut will pledge their allegiance to either cookie or brownie by using the hashtags #cookieperson or #brownieperson. Pizza Hut will then reward 100 people from the winning team with $5 Pizza Hut gift codes.
