Our Story

Our Story - Since 1901

Idaho Candy Company began as a dream for T.O. Smith in his home in 1901. In 1909 Mr. Smith teamed up with the Adams family to build a modern factory at 412 South 8th Street in Boise to meet the needs of his customers. It was touted as the most modern building in Boise at the time. It included sky lights and a "welfare" or break room for the employees. This is the same 23,000 sq ft factory that we make our candies in today. Some of the equipment used in the early 1900's is still in use today.

In this factory Idaho Candy Company produced over 50 different candy bars over the years and many varieties of boxed chocolates. Some of the bar names included: Chicken Dinner Bar, Brazil Cremes, Mint Patty, Big Chief, Quarter Section, Fox Trot and many others. Three of those candy bars are still in production: Idaho Spud Bar (1918), Old Faithful Bar (1925) and the Cherry Cocktail Bar (1926). Our factory also produces 3 varieties of Owyhee Butter Toffee(1925), available in original chunk style, bite sized and chocolate covered. Taste one of our delicious candies, today.
