Hershey's Miniatures History
Hershey's Miniatures Candy is a popular product line from The Hershey Company, one of the largest chocolate manufacturers in the world. The Hershey Company was founded in 1894 by Milton Hershey in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and it has since become an iconic American brand.
The Hershey's Miniatures Candy line was introduced in the 1930s, and it quickly became a popular choice for consumers looking for a variety of Hershey's chocolate products in one package. The original package included four different chocolate bars: Hershey's Milk Chocolate, Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate, Krackel (which was later replaced with Mr. Goodbar), and Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds.
Over the years, the Hershey's Miniatures Candy line has expanded to include other Hershey's products, such as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme bars, in addition to the original four. The packaging has also evolved, with different sizes and designs available for different occasions and holidays.
Today, Hershey's Miniatures Candy remains a popular choice for chocolate lovers who want a variety of flavors in one convenient package.
Hershey's Miniatures Memories
My favorite memory involving candy goes back to when I was six years old. It was a few weeks before Halloween, and I remember my Mom coming home from the grocery store with the candy that she was going to pass out on Halloween night--Hershey's Miniatures! I was all excited and would have torn right into the bags, but my Mom stopped me and said that I could have whatever was left after I got back from trick-or-treating on Halloween night.
This was a major disappointment for three reasons. First, I was crazy about Hershey's Miniatures (especially the Krackel). Second, to a six-year-old, a few weeks is obviously a LONG time, and third, so many kids trick-or-treated in my neighborhood that there was almost certain to be little or nothing left.
About a week later, my older brother was watching me while my Mom was out. He had me come into his room and told me to crawl under his desk with him. He told me to reach behind one of the drawers, and I pulled out a Krackel! Somehow, he'd managed to get a hold of some and had a small stash hidden in his desk! We lay there eating the candy and laughing until we'd finished it.
This was very cool for me because since my brother was so much older than I was, we didn't really do a lot of things together. My Mom never noticed anything missing, and to this day I still don't know how he did it.
Before I saw the Hershey's minis on your website, I'd all but forgotten about them. Seeing them again brings back that wonderful memory. I'll be sure to look for some to pass out on Halloween this year and share with my brother, too! ~ Zack from California
