Memorabilia at Dylans Candy Bar New York

On one wall, there’s a timeline showcasing the evolution of candy.

Did you know that Hershey’s invented the Chocolate Kiss in 1907?

It was named the Kiss because the machine that made them looked like it was kissing the conveyor belt they were made on!

Or that the Life Saver (named after it’s ring shape) was first introduced in it’s signature peppermint flavour.

22 years later, the fruit flavours were on the shelves for the first time.
