DENVER — Hershey is suing a marijuana edibles company in Colorado that makes some pot-infused candies. The famous chocolate maker says TinctureBelle LLC and TinctureBelle Marijuanka LLC makes products that closely resemble Hershey’s iconic candies.

The Associated Press reports the federal trademark infringement lawsuit was filed this week in Denver.

It claims the edibles company makes products called Ganja Joy, Hasheath, Hashees and Dabby Patty that mimic Hershey’s Almond Joy, Heath, Reese’s peanut butter cups and York peppermint patty.

The suit says TinctureBelle’s products are packaged in colors matching Hershey’s famous treats. Hershey wants a judge to order TinctureBelle to stop selling its products.

TinctureBelle did not respond to the AP’s requests for comment.
