Hershey’s is the best-known American candy brand. It all goes back to the mid-1890’s, when candymaker Milton Hershey came up with a new process that enabled him to coat his confections with milk chocolate. The chocolaty flavor proved so popular that by 1900 the coating became a candy bar on its own. The original Hershey Bar was born, and snacking would never be the same again.
It wasn’t long (1907) before the original milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses, those delicious foil-wrapped morsels that everybody loves, came along. York Peppermint Patties, with their rich dark chocolate layered over a cool minty center, made since 1940, joined the Hershey family in 1988. And Hershey’s began producing those plenty-good Good & Plenty licorice candies, America’s oldest candy brand (since 1893), in the 1990’s. Imagine the fun you can have with bowls of these iconic treats-in-a-box on hand, with someone channeling old Choo-Choo Charlie for the Train Dance. No doubt about it:appy times and happy guests call for America’s most-loved candy brand…Hershey’s!
