MILK DUDS Candies were introduced by F. Hoffman & Co. of Chicago in 1928.
MILK DUDS Candy got their name because their maker found it impossible to get the chocolate-covered caramels to form perfectly round balls, so he called them “duds.”
Today, MILK DUDS Candy is owned and made by Hershey.
MILK DUDS sweets are produced at the Hershey plant in Robinson, Illinois.
