The Milton Hershey Story

Share this story with friends

An American candy store in 1900 looked very different than it does today. Candy was a special treat sold almost exclusively in candy stores. Even though there was plenty of sweets to choose from, Milton Hershey knew the one thing that was missing: chocolate. Chocolate was sold in Europe and only a very few affluent Americans had ever tried it. Here to tell the story is Don Papson, President and Executive Director at The M.S. Hershey Foundation and Amy Zeigler, Sr. Director of The Hershey Story Museum.
