If Our Shelves Could Talk

For almost 70 sweet years we have been selling candy to everyone. Our shelves may not be able to really talk, but our years of filling them can!  It started way back in the 30’s when my grandfather started our wholesale candy business.

Our shelves back then were filled with Hershey Bars, Tootsie Rolls, Necco Wafers, Cracker Jacks and Teaberry Gum

Twenty five years later my father was in charge of the same shelves and needed to add more shelves for the Bubble Gum Cigars, Candy Necklaces, Atomic Fireballs, Shoe String Licorice and Marshmallow Peeps.

Forty years later when the 3rd generation including myself took over, our shelves were still filled with all the above plus much more. My generation needed even more shelves for the Skittles, Gummi Bears, Worms and Penguins, Blo Pops, Caramel Apple Pops and all the new dark chocolate confections. A 70 year time line of watching the shelves load and unload of thousands of different candy treats makes us pretty experienced and our shelves pretty important.

Don’t get confused, we aren’t trying to compare ourselves to the Milton S. Hershey or the Henry Nestle.  We don’t make any kind of candy ourselves, but we do buy and distribute all kinds of candy from most candy manufacturers and sell it to you.  Chocolates, gummi candy, bubble gum, gum drops, novelty candy and more.  We stock and sell it all!  We’ve seen a lot come and we’ve seen a lot go. Sometimes the wear and tare of the coming and going gets so crazy we have to buy new shelves to give the old ones a rest. LOL

70 years of housing and selling thousands and thousands of different sweet candy treats, watching them load onto the shelves, watching them go off.  Watching the chocolate’s turn colors, the hard candy go chewy and the sweet candy change to sour.  70 years of distributing it all to the retail stores to sell or to the individuals who shop our brick and mortar stores, or our online store.

Just what would our shelves say if they could talk?  Plain and simple, short and sweet; Nobody Knows Candy Like We Do!
