Maker Zeigler's

Maker Details On January 11, 1861, George Ziegler and his brothers-in-law formed the firm that became the George Ziegler Company, and began making a general line of American and French confections. Over the years to come, they invented, perfected and automated many processes and methods of candy making, packaging and marketing. In the early 1900's, they were the first to offer a chocolate bar combining number one peanuts with milk chocolate, in block form. It was called "Milk Chocolate Peanut Block." In 1911, they were the first in the country to market a wrapped candy bar, with a distinctive name of its own, the 5 cent Ziegler Giant Bar. The rest is history.
