The History of ALMOND JOY Candy Bars

In 1919, Peter Halajian sold homemade sweets door-to-door, including MOUNDS Candy Bars. It wasn’t until 1948 when consumer demand for chocolate led to the creation of ALMOND JOY Candy Bars. You probably remember the iconic jingle, “sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t,” written by American composer Leon Carr in 1970. ALMOND JOY and MOUNDS Candy Bars joined The Hershey Company family in 1988.
