Our Story

How We Started

Some 40 years ago, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a wonderfully lovable, quirky,and bubbly woman named Ruth taught Joanne the finer points of creating various homemade confections.  The seasonal business flourished, with the signature Almond Butter Crunch becoming a holiday tradition for many families in Central Pennsylvania and beyond.  Now, some forty years later, Auntie Ruth's recipes and even some of her original equipment have been passed down to Joanne's daughter, Christina and her son-in-law, Kevin.

Whether you are looking for something sweet around the house, that perfect teacher or hostess present, or corporate gifts, we hope you will try our unique confections.
