Hershey's milk chocolate is an all-American classic. The recipe was formulated by Milton S. Hershey in the early 20th century, and Hershey factories have been cranking out chocolate candies ever since. The king-sized milk chocolate bar is one of the largest Hershey candies on the market. While a couple of squares are OK as an occasional sweet treat, eating the whole bar isn't advisable. The creamy chocolate is full of fat, sugar and hundreds of calories.
