Cool Stuff Being Made: How Hershey’s Kisses Are Made

This week’s video takes us to Hershey, Pennsylvania, where we see how Hershey Kisses are made — from the milk truck through the production process to the iconic foil wrapping known by generations of Americans.

We feature a wide range of manufactured goods on this space (from candy to aircraft carriers), but you’ll find a lot of similarities in these videos — skilled professionals, high technology, and quality products. Those are traits shared by American manufacturers and what makes them global leaders.

For those of you who may have more of a “Willy Wonka” notion of the inside of a chocolate factory, Hershey’s Chocolate World on the grounds of the Hershey campus is a favorite for many families who either live in the area or are visiting. In the summertime, adjacent Hersheypark, a 110-acre amusement park, can help work off some of the sweets.

Valentine’s Day, family fun, and tasty treats — all brought to you in part by great American manufacturer Hershey Company.
