Did Hershey chocolate change their recipe?
Sometime in fall 2007, Hershey changed their recipe, unannounced.
I have an older package of Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses from summer 2007. The ingredients are: Milk chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa butter, chocolate, soy lecithin, and vanillin, artificial flavor). I also have a newer bag from just before Halloween 2007. The ingredients are: Milk chocolate (sugar, milk, chocolate, cocoa butter, LACTOSE, MILK FAT, soy lecithin and PGPR, EMULSIFIERS, and vanillin, artificial flavor).

The Hershey's chocolate bar was invented in the year 1900 by a man named Milton Hershey. That is why they also call it a Hershey's bar.

The Hershey Company's signature milk chocolate was created along with Milton Hershey's invention of the Hershey process in 1899. Though a trade secret, the Hershey process provided Milton Hershey a way to mass produce chocolate more cheaply, yet still providing the same taste that the earlier recipes for chocolate had.
