HEATH Toffee Bars were invented in 1928 by Bayard and Everett Heath. Early on, local consumers could have HEATH Toffee Bars delivered with their milk.
Until 1942, the candy was made by hand using a copper kettle, stirring paddle, marble slab and a rolling knife.
The Heath family sold the candy to Leaf Inc. in 1989. The Hershey Company acquired Leaf Inc. in 1996, and has made HEATH Bars ever since.
