Hersheyâ€™s Kisses Chocolate is known around the world for its iconic shape, festive flags, and delicious chocolate taste. Introduced in 1907, it got its name from the way the chocolate â€œkissedâ€ the conveyor belt during manufacturing. The plume was added in 1921 and trademarked by Milton Hershey in 1924. Today, Hersheyâ€™s Kisses Chocolate comes in a wide variety of colors and flavors. While great for snacking and sharing, Hersheyâ€™s Kisses Chocolate can also be used for baking, gifts, party favors, and crafts.
The story of Hersheyâ€™s Chocolate begins with Milton S. Hershey. Raised as a poor farm boy, Hershey became fascinated with chocolate-making at the 1893 Worldâ€™s Columbian Exposition. Hershey founded the Hershey Chocolate Company in 1894, and built the worldâ€™s largest chocolate factory in 1903. He then created the industrial town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, where workers enjoyed comfortable homes, inexpensive public transport, and quality public schools. In 1909, Hershey and his wife established a school for orphan boys. Hershey eventually endowed the bulk of his wealth to this school, including ownership of the Hershey Chocolate Company. For more than a century, the Milton Hershey School has enriched the lives of countless children in need. The town of Hershey, Pennsylvania has provided employment, recreation, and culture. And The Hershey Company has brought smiles to people around the world.
