Who is Henry Anyway? Oh, THAT Henry.
Oh Henry! candy bars were first introduced in 1920 by the Williamson Candy Company of Chicago, Illinois. The classic candy bars combine peanuts, caramel and fudge into an easy-to-eat bar shape. The entire creation is then dipped in a milk chocolate coating, creating another layer of sweet flavor. Oh Henry! bars are packaged in bright yellow wrappers with the name of the candy displayed in large, bold print across the front.
The exact origin of the name of the candy bar is unknown. One popular legend states that the tasty bar was named after a young man who frequently visited the Williamson Candy Company in order to flirt with the girls who were responsible for making the candy bars. Others believe the chocolate bar was named after the American writer O. Henry.
The most probable theory is that the candy was named after Tom Henry of the Peerless candy factory. It is possible that the Williamson Candy Company bought the recipe for the Oh Henry! bar in 1920 and named it after the creator. Henry's family later became known for their candy factory in Kansas, which sells a Momma Henry bar that is strikingly similar to the Oh Henry! bar.
