The Sweet Beginning

It occurred to me that a bit of history may be a good thing to share.  So here’s where it all came from. Image

It all starts with a little boy growing up eating a chocolate fudge recipe given to his mother by his kindergarten teacher.   He helped make the fudge for years until mom said “I’m make it!”  It sparked an interest in deserts (read created a chocoholic) and so he expanded on that recipe and learned to make more sweets for himself.

As an adult, when times were thin, he decided candy was a great way to give family and friends Christmas gifts (maybe in an attempt to keep those family and friends from getting thin, themselves).  They were such a hit, the next year people complained about getting regular gifts again. And from there it flourished because like us, our friends wanted candy year-round.  He knew he had something!

Today the candy recipes have expanded to include so much more than just chocolate.  OK let’s face it; it’s still a lot of chocolate.  And now he has a partner and a daughter to share the candy making.  Now we can share it with you and your friends and family!


A real friend…

You know someone is your friend when they give you more than half of their candy bar!

Eat it Now!

Philosophers say take time to smell the roses.

Nutritionists will tell you that you shouldn’t eat too fast.

At The Kandy Jar, we think they’ve got it all wrong.

EAT IT NOW!  And keep eating it fast.

Our candy isn’t meant to last you weeks on a shelf.


It’s fresh and yummy and should be eaten as soon as you get it.


Because we don’t use preservatives.  There’s no chemical mixture that makes it able to travel in a semi-truck and then sit on a shelf for weeks or months!


It’s fresh and ready to be eaten when it gets to you.  And we recommend you eat it fast.

Because we’ve found that if you don’t eat it fast, someone else will find it and eat it for you.
