|Product type||Toffee candy bar|
|Owner||The Hershey Company|
Skor is a candy bar produced by The Hershey Company. It was first marketed in the United States in 1981 and later launched in Canada in 1983. "Skör" (with umlaut dots over the "o") is Swedish for "brittle", and the crown that appears in the product's logo is identical to that found in the Swedish national emblem of Tre Kronor ("Three Crowns"). However, most read the name as "Skor", which means "shoes" in Swedish. It was originally intended as the competition for the Heath bar produced by the Heath Company and, later, the Leaf Candy Company. Despite Hershey's acquisition of Leaf, Inc., in 1996 and subsequent production of the Heath bar under the Hershey name, the company continues to market the Skor bar.
The bar consists of a thin slab of butter toffee covered in a milk chocolate coating. It is similar in style to a Daim bar. Skor is available from retail stores as a single- or king size-wrapped candy bar in a 1.4 oz (39 gram) portion.
The Skor bar is very similar to its old competitor, the Heath bar. However, there are differences between the two, such as the Skor bar being slightly thinner than the Heath bar.
