Choco Hershey’s

06 Jun

I’m guessing that everyone knows where the title for this delicious chocolate, Hershey’s, comes from. It comes from the man who started it all and made a change to the world (to me) named Milton S. Hershey. Milton S. Hershey did not right away become a chocolate maker. In fact, in 1876, Hershey tried to start his own candy business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after being an apprentice for four years for a Lancaster, Pennsylvania candy maker. Unfortunately, after six whole years of hard work, the business failed. For that reason, Hershey moved to Denver, Colorado and found work with a confectioner, who is a candy maker, and this confectioner happened to teach him how to make caramels using fresh milk. So, Hershey tried to succeed in his second candy business in New York City. However, like the first candy business, the second was also a failure. Hershey returned to Lancaster again to thrive for the best for this caramel business, and it was a success. Then the idea hit him, Hershey decided to produce chocolate coatings for his caramels, and little did he know it, he had just started the beginning of a chocolate company called The Hershey Company in 1894. In 1900, the company began producing milk chocolate in bars, wafers, and other stuff. By the summer of 1905, the new factory was turning out delicious milk chocolate. The time went by and Kisses were produced in 1907, Mr.Goodbar in 1925, Krackel bar in 1938, and on and on it went. The Hershey Company’s brands are Reese’s, Almond Joy, Kit Kat, Twizzlers, Mound, and York. Today, The Hershey Company has gone a long way. From the net sales of $334 million in 1996 to $4.4 billion in 2004. *Spectacular.* The Hershey Company is the leading North American manufacturer of quality chocolate, non-chocolate confectionery, and chocolate-related grocery products. This woonderful company is also a leader in the mint and gum category. Overall, Hershey’s started with a little dream but a big heart <3.
