Twizzlers was born in 1845 as a chewy licorice flavored candy produced by Young & Smylie Candies, Inc. Years of holding its own as an original sweet loved by generations, the chewy twisted treat expanded in the late 1970s with flavor additions such as strawberry, grape, chocolate, cherry, and watermelon. With more flavors came more sizes, and soon, twists, bites, and nibs flooded the candy scene. In 1977, The Hershey Company realized the potential of this iconic candy and acquired the brand.
This iconic cherry licorice has stood the test of time and continues to be one of the most loved and recognized candies the world over.
