TRUTH !!
In 1917, Harry Burnett Reese took a job milking cows for Milton Hershey, the chocolate giant, eventually moving to a job in the factory.
He decided to go into business for himself after seeing the impressive amount of chocolate produced and sold by the Hershey Company.
Reese opened his factory not far from the Hershey Company, and labeled his candy "made in Hershey".
He and Hershey maintained a good working relationship, and Hershey even helped him over several financial and operational rough spots.
In 1963, Hershey Chocolate Corp. purchased the H.B. Reese candy Company.
