The story of The Hershey Company:

This the brain child of Milton Hershey, who not only invented the milk chocolate formula for Hershey bars and kisses, but grew a thriving Pennsylvania town around his operations.

Just know this: Hershey is still one of the largest chocolate manufacturers in the world.

It runs a mega store in the cross roads of the world, New York’s Times Square.
