The chocolate for the chocolate coating was supplied by Hershey’s.By 1926 it came out in two flavors, chocolate nougat with milk chocolate coating, and vanilla nougat with a dark chocolate coating, each for a nickel. In June 1932, the Milky Way bar was sold as a two piece bar, but just four years later, in 1936, the chocolate and vanilla were separated. The vanilla version, with a dark chocolate coating, was called “Forever Yours” and it was produced until 1979. In 1989, Forever Yours was reintroduced and renamed “Milky Way Dark,” and later “Milky Way Midnight in 1935, the slogan was “The sweet you can eat between meals.’ It was then changed to “At work, rest and play, you get three great tastes in a Milky Way.” By 2006 the US slogan was “Comfort in every bar.” and most recently became “Life’s Better the Milky Way.”
