Some Hershey's products. Milton Snavely Hershey founded a candy shop in Philadelphia, which failed after only 6 years. In 1900, Hershey sold his caramel company for $1,000,000 (about $24,000,000 todays currancy) and began to concentrate on his chocolate manufacturing. He then established a plant in Pennsylvania, Milton's home town, and his milk chocolate was proven sucessful. his plant grew faster. First Hershey'd Plant, established
in Pennsylvania by Milton Hershey. Milton's company was sucessfully selling his sweet products, he knew that there was a problem with continuing making milk products. So Milton built a milk-processing plant in the year 1896, to be able to create and refine a recipe for his milk chocolate candies. in 1907 Hershey introduced a new candy, the Hershey Kiss. About three years later it went on to become one of the most successful and well-known products ever produced by the company. One of the most sucessful
products made my Hershey's Harry Burnett Reese worked at Hershey, beginning in 1917, as a dairyman for the Hershey Farms. In 1921 he went to work in the factory. He thought that if Mr. Hershey could sell seven carloads of chocolate a week that he saw no reason why he couldn't sell a couple hundred pounds. Reese experimented at his home with various confections. He developed an assortment of candies which he was able to sell to department stores in Lancaster, advertised as "made in Hershey". In 1926 he built his own factory. His company struggled but Milton aided his needs for cheap. He then conducted the Reese's peanut butter cup which became very popular. He had stopped making other products and had died without a plan of sucession. Harry Reese's sucessful candy -
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. In 1941 Bruce Murrie, struck a deal with Forest Mars to create a hard sugar coated chocolate that would be called M&M's (named for the two men). Murrie had 20 percent interest in the confection. The new confection would use Hershey chocolate. In 1948 Mars bought out Murrie's interest and would become one of Hershey's primary competitors Another favourite of Hershey's Manufacturing. In 2007, the Chocolate Manufacturers Association in the United States, whose members include Hershey, Nestlé, and Archer Daniels Midland, lobbied the Food and Drug Administration to change the legal definition of chocolate to let them substitute partially hydrogenated vegetable oils for cocoa butter in addition to using artificial sweeteners and milk substitutes. Currently, the FDA does not allow a product to be referred to as "chocolate" if the product contains any of these ingredients. Companies change legal deffinition on chocolate.
