Milton's first inspiration struck when he was only about 15 years old!
When the Hershey family settled in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Milton met his new tutor, Joseph R. Royer.
Joseph was the owner of Joseph’s Ice Cream Parlor, in Lancaster.
Royer taught Milton how to make all kind of different candies.
This person inspired Milton to make candy, chocolate, and sweets.
Starting a business
By the time Milton was 18, he had learned alot from Royer.
He already felt ready to open his own store.
After hearing this, Milton's parents helped him design his own candy shop.
In June 1, 1876, Milton opened a small taffy shop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The store sold nuts, baked goods, and taffy.
Sadly, in 1882, after six years in slow business, his shop failed.
The Hershey family lived on a small, cozy farm, just outside of Hockersville, Pennsylvania.
Milton's only younger sister, Serina, was born in 1862.
Their family was very poor. Because of that, his family moved a lot.
In 1867, Serina died at the age of four, because of a disease called scarlet fever.
Milton had very little friends, and in all had a pretty boring childhood.
A Giving Heart
After the closing of his candy shop, Milton got a new job with a candy maker.
The candy maker taught Milton how to make caramels.
In the 1880's he opened a caramel business in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Milton found that smothering his caramels in chocolate made them delicious.
Everybody in that area loved his caramels.
Milton became the Caramel King!
Milton wanted chocolate to be available to everyone, so he started the Hershey Chocolate Company.
He began to work on a recipe for milk chocolate
He closed his caramel store, so he could work more on his chocolate recipe.
Milk chocolate was a guarded secret back then, so it took Milton years to perfect his recipe, but, he never gave up and did it.
In 1900, Hershey introduced the first milk chocolate Hershey bar.
Milton built a town called Hershey in 1902.
He provided all of his workers with homes, churches, banks, parks, and many other useful buildings.
Milton also donated lots of money to the people in need, and saved many lives by helping orphaned boys and giving food to the hungry people of California.
