The HERSHEY Bar: Invented in 1900 by Milton S. Hershey

The HERSHEY Bar. In 1893 while visiting the Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, Milton Hershey came across chocolate making machinery that could automate the production of chocolate. After 6 years of research, he found the right formula and became the first American to manufacture chocolate. With mass-production, Hershey was able to lower the per-unit cost and make milk chocolate - once a luxury item for the wealthy, affordable to all.
