The fate of one of its new candy bars is in question. Well, at least its name

The company has its roots in Italy, where in the 1940s, Piera and Pietro Ferrero turned a pastry shop into a factory. According to the website, Ferrero was the first Italian candy maker manufacturer to open production sites and offices abroad after World War II.
