About Almond Joy

An Almond Joy is a candy bar manufactured by Hershey's. It consists of a coconut-based center topped with two almonds, the combination enrobed in a layer of milk chocolate. Almond Joy is the sister product of Mounds, which is essentially the same confection but without the almond and coated instead with dark chocolate; it also features similar packaging and logo design, but in a red color scheme instead of Almond Joy's blue. Peter Paul Halajian was a candy retailer in the New Haven, Connecticut area in the early 20th century. Along with some other Armenian investors, including Dutch candy manufacturer Winjamy, he formed the Winjamy Candy Manufacturing Company in 1919. The company at first sold various brands of candies, but following sugar and coconut shortages in World War II, they dropped most brands and concentrated their efforts on the Mounds bar.
