(Reuters) – Hershey Co reported quarterly sales that beat Wall Street estimates on Thursday, as the Kit Kat maker benefited from price increases and strong demand for its chocolates and candies.

Net sales rose to $2.33 billion in the fourth quarter from $2.19 billion a year earlier, compared with estimates of $2.27 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES data.
