Before founding The Hershey Company, Milton Hershey built the Lancaster Caramel Company. His original caramel recipe is the inspiration for LANCASTER Caramel Soft Crèmes.
We start with high quality ingredients like whole milk to create the delicious flavor of new LANCASTER Caramel Soft Crèmes.
Making something extraordinary takes time. LANCASTER Caramel Soft Crèmes are carefully crafted for a rich, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth sensation like no other.
Milton S. Hershey sells the Lancaster Caramel Company for $1 million dollars, using the funds to build his chocolate business.
LANCASTER Soft Crèmes are born in three rich and creamy flavors: Caramel, Vanilla and Caramel, and Vanilla and Raspberry.
Milton Hershey builds the Lancaster Caramel Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania – and builds his reputation as a candy maker.
To meet increasing demand, the Lancaster Caramel Company expands its factory.
The Lancaster Caramel Company grows to 1,300 employees. Its products are shipped worldwide.
