A Bit of History

The first chocolate kiss in the U.S.A., made in 1894, when Milton Hershey was a caramel maker. H. O. Wilbur started the company in 1865 in Pennsylvania where the bud is still made today! The milk chocolate was made by Daniel Peter, the chocolatier who discovered how to make milk chocolate.
