The Hershey Company Legacy
Milton S. Hershey is the founder of the Hershey Company. Ever since he was a young child, he always wanted to make candy. Despite starting and failing with three businesses, he found inspiration through German technology for chocolate making. Inspired by these European chocolates, Hershey sold his Lancaster Caramel Company about 125 years ago to a competitor. Then, he began what would become the internationally famous Hershey Company.
Although the Swiss heavily guarded their chocolate recipes, Hershey was able to perfect his own Hershey’s chocolate after several years. His very first chocolate was the original Hershey Chocolate bar, and later, the Hershey Kiss. Because of Hershey’s steadily increasing fame, the town of Pennsylvania that was home to his factory eventually renamed itself from Derry to Hershey. Today, the Hershey company produces not only chocolate bars and kisses but also Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kit-Kat Bars, Jolly Ranchers, Twizzlers, Ice Breakers, and more, including SkinnyPop Popcorn.
Hershey also has a theme park originally created for the employees of Hershey’s Chocolate Factory. Today you can visit the park that is both an amusement park and an interactive museum. Every season there is a special theme, so plan your visit accordingly!
The Hershey Kiss
Although the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar was the very first chocolate created by the company, the Hershey Kiss is a product unique to Hershey for its drop-like design. First manufactured in 1907, this chocolate candy is one of the most famous of all. It also remains the sole focus of a famous TV commercial that airs annually during the holidays. The little tag that blooms from the foil wrapping is called the “plume”, which is a part of the box for these special edition silver Hershey Kiss coins. It originally said “Hershey” on the plume, then later just said “Kiss” after former competitors stopped producing Hershey Kiss-like chocolates.
No one knows exactly why the name of the chocolate is “Kiss”. There are two possible explanations identified by the company. The first one is that the machine that produced the chocolates made a “kissing” noise when pouring the chocolate. The other suggestion is that “Kiss” was a proper confectionary term for small chocolates at that time. Hershey simply trademarked the name when the product became extremely popular.
Production for these candies began in 1907 and did not cease until 1942 when WWII rations required aluminum. Instead, Hershey produced chocolate D-Rations for the US Military during this time. Then, in 1947, the chocolate Hershey Kiss was back in business. With multiple designs and flavors, even brand new ones in 2020, there is a Hershey Kiss perfect for everyone. From Cookies n’ Cream to Mint Truffles and Caramel-filled chocolate Kisses, the versatility of these delicious chocolates is endless!
