The History of MILK DUDS Candy

MILK DUDS were introduced in 1928 by F. Hoffman & Co. of Chicago. That same year, the company was taken over by Milton J. Holloway.

MILK DUDS Candy got their name because their maker found it impossible to get the chocolate-covered caramels to form perfectly round balls, so he called them “duds.”

Today, MILK DUDS Chewy Caramels are owned and made by Hershey.
