Hershey's Kisses

On July 7, 1907 the chocolate tear-drop known as Hershey's Kisses were hand-wrapped at Hershey, Pennsylvania. Automatic wrapping equipment was installed in 1921 with a little strip of paper hanging out the top to let buyers know these were real Hershey's chocolate. Production was interrupted by shortages of aluminum foil between 1942 and 1949. Hershey's produces over eighty million kisses every day, making it the fifth most popular candy in the United States.
