Tasty Museum In Illinois Celebrates One Of Oldest U.S. Candy Bars
One of the oldest candy bars in the United States is celebrated by the tastiest museum in Illinois.
One Of My Favorite Candy Bars
In college, my roommate's dad worked for a candy company. When his parents would come to visit, they would bring us boxes of full-size candy bars. I remember that at the time, Heath was my favorite. It was probably because they were free and we always had a bunch of them.
History Of The Heath Bar
According to Herseyland.com,
"HEATH Toffee Bars were invented in 1928 by Bayard and Everett Heath. Early on, local consumers could have HEATH Toffee Bars delivered with their milk."
"The HEATH Toffee Bar was made by hand until 1942 when they switched to commercial production to keep up with a huge order from the U.S. Army."
"With its crunchy English toffee and smooth milk chocolate, the HEATH Toffee Bar has been a favorite for almost a century. "
