The Whoppers Malted Milk Ball Origin Story

It's 1939. Seven-year old Herbert has 40 cents from his mom to spend at the movies. Of course, he gets a box of Whoppers candy. Mouth watering, he rips it open a little too hard and six wonderful malted balls of chocolate found themselves at the back of the theater.

The fateful six landed with an enchanting view of the screen. While Herbert moved on, they stayed and caught all the magic of the big screen for decades, until something magical happened to them. One day, Herbert’s grandson leaned back to find the traditional old Whoppers malted milk balls had turned into lively, opinionated Whoppersons.
