muth's candies

You’ve probably heard of the “candy man”, but Muth’s Candies has always been owned and operated by a family of incredible candy women. “Muth’s was actually started by my great aunt and uncle in 1921,” says Martha Bennett Vories, the current owner of Muth’s. “My great uncle passed in the early 1950’s, and my grandmother and great aunt ran the business together for about 30 years. Then my grandmother ran the business with my mother until the mid 1990’s when it was then turned over to me.”
