Today, September 13, is the birth-anniversary of Milton Snavely Hershey, a very prominent figure in the candy world. The founder of the Hershey's chocolate empire was born to a respectable Pennsylvania family in 1857. A true example of extraordinary perseverance, Hershey experienced failure after failure before striking it rich with his super creamy caramels. He was one of the first confectioners who valued the importance of using fresh milk to make quality candy.
Hershey's caramels caught the attention of a European candy importer and a huge sale allowed Hershey to experiment in other aspects of candy making. He began to produce all varieties of baking chocolates, establishing a business that continues to thrive and grow in the present day.
I always have a bottle of Hershey's chocolate syrup in my fridge, how about you guys? Is Hershey's a part of your life?
