About HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars

The History of “The Great American Chocolate Bar”

Milton S. Hershey introduced the soon-to-be iconic milk chocolate bar in 1900. Chocolate was a treat once reserved for the wealthy, but Mr. Hershey sought to make his candy an affordable treat for anyone to enjoy.

While milk chocolate set the bar, the innovations never stopped. From the HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate with Almonds Bar to the HERSHEY’S COOKIES ‘N’ CREME Bar to the HERSHEY’S Organic Milk Chocolate Candy Bar of today, there are many moments of goodness to be had with HERSHEY’S Chocolate.
