Cherry Blossom (candy)
Cherry Blossom is a type of chocolate bar in Canada produced by Hershey Canada Inc.. Hershey used to produce it at its Canadian manufacturing facility in Smiths Falls, Ontario. It is now produced in Mexico.
The candy had been manufactured since the 1890s by the Walter M. Lowney Company of Canada which was taken over by Hershey as a subsidiary brand. The facility in Smith Falls, north-east of Kingston, Ontario is now closed.
It consists of a maraschino cherry and cherry syrup surrounded by a mixture of chocolate, coconut and roasted peanut pieces. The candy is sold in an individually wrapped 45-gram portion, packaged in a close-fitting cardboard box.
