History
Y&S Candies, the manufacturers of TWIZZLER candy, was one of the first confectionery firms in North America. The company was established in 1845 as Young and Smylie and adopted Y&S as its trade-mark in 1870. National Licorice Company was created in 1902 through the merger of three small firms: Young & Smylie, S.V. & F.P. Schudder and H.W. Petherbridge.

In 1908 a plant was opened in Montreal and in 1929 the TWIZZLER brand was established.

The company changed its name to Y&S Candies Inc. in 1968 and was acquired by Hershey in 1977.
