Kit Kat: First established by Rowntree’s in the United Kingdom during the 1930s, the Kit
Kat bar has since become a household name in the American market for candy bars.
Characterized by its classic four-bar structure and trademark slogan of “Have a Break,
Have a Kit Kat,” Kit Kat bars are now produced in more than 20 countries across the
globe. Kit Kat itself has also spawned a number of related products, including Kit Kat
Extra Crispy and Kit Kat White.

Twizzlers: One of the most ubiquitous names in the world of licorice, Twizzlers initially
existed as a product of Y&S Candies before becoming a subsidiary of Hershey. Twizzlers
are also one of the oldest among popular candies today, tracing their roots back more than
150 years to the founding of Young and Smylie in 1845. Over the past two decades,
Hershey has introduced a number of new flavors and styles of Twizzlers, including the
Twizzlers Pull n’ Peel and the Twizzlers Sweet & Sour Filled Twists.

Reese’s: The history of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is closely entwined with that of The
Hershey Company as a whole. H. B. Reese, a dairy farmer and former employee of The
Hershey Company, developed the idea for the peanut-butter-and-chocolate candy in
1928. After 35 years of successful sales, Reese sold the H. B. Reese Candy Company to
Hershey for a price of more than $20 million in 1963. Since then, Reese’s has introduced
new products such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Bites.

                                    posted by

Almond Joy: One of the most popular coconut-based candy bars in the United States
today, Almond Joy originated as one of the brands sold by the Peter Paul Candy
Manufacturing Company and, later, Cadbury. After The Hershey Company acquired the
U.S. portion of Cadbury in 1988, it began to introduce Almond Joy products such as Milk
Chocolate Passion Fruit and White Chocolate Key Lime.
