The Cherry Blossom is an old fashioned candy that is a sweet blast from the past. Cherry Blossom Candy was first made in 1890 by the Walter M. Lowney Company. Currently this sweet treat is produced by the Hershey's.
The iconic Cherry Blossom Candy is packaged in a retro looking yellow box, that contains a maraschino cherry and cherry syrup. However a product produced by Hershey NEEDS that chocolate touch! That's why every cherry is surrounded by that high quality Hershey's chocolate, mixed with coconut and roasted peanut pieces. Is your mouth salivating yet?
The coolest part to the production of Cherry Blossoms is that the cherry syrup starts as a solid when produced, but thanks to an added enzyme, breaks down and becomes a liquid over the course of 2 weeks. Now that's a sweeeeeet application of science!
