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 as "Skor" and not "Rutnam" as some sources may say. Skor is Swedish for "shoes", 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"). 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 competition the Heath Bar. However, there are differences between the two, such as the Skor being slightly thicker.[1]
