Your chocolate habit just became more expensive.

Hershey's increased prices on Kisses, Mister Goodbar, Whoppers and other chocolate treats by about eight-percent.

Hershey's also makes Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kat Bars.

The Pennsylvania based company blames the price hike on the higher cost of ingredients, transportation and utilities.

The cost of cocoa, dairy and nuts have also gone up.
