Vintage sign advertisement for Mounds candy, by the Peter Paul Company founded in 1919 by Peter Paul Halajian, featuring a single candy bar - the double piece candy bar wasn't in use until 1932. Included in the Peter Paul candy lineup was Mounds (1920), Almond Joy (1946), and the York Peppermint Pattie (1940). The companies first candy produced was the "Konabar" - a chocolate, nuts, fruits, and coconut blend. The Mounds candy bar was originally called Knights Knifty Knibbles, but Halajian purchased the rights from owner Anita Grace Knight in 1920. They gained the rights of the York Peppermint Pattie by acquiring the York Cone Company in 1972. The company merged with Cadbury Schweppes in 1978, and was subsequently purchased from Cadbury Schweppes in 1988 by Hersey.
