The History of MILK DUDS Candy

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.
