We’re not sure which is better; admiring the artistically hand-made ribbon candy or eating it! It’s the same, sweet flavor families have been enjoying and sharing for a century. 8 oz heat-sealed bag of this traditional candy with the history on the label.

A Bit of History

A New England candy-maker made the machines faster and easier, and, in the 1940s, candy ribbon became available everywhere. This is it!
